Stream Lollapalooza from your couch this weekend

If you couldn't score a ticket to Lollapalooza this weekend, you'll still be able to catch some of the festival's best performances. The city's largest music festival announced a "Lollapalooza Livestream" in collaboration with Red Bull TV, which will broadcast more than 20 performances as well as artist interviews and candid moments from backstage. 

Sets from Paul McCartney, Metallica and Florence + the Machine will all be broadcast live. Other acts such as Sam Smith, Bassnectar and Tame Impala won't be included in the stream, so you'll be stuck seeking out iPhone videos on YouTube if you want to see those performances.

The live stream will be hosted by Sal Masekela, Ted Stryker and Julie Garcia. If you enjoy live music but hate the crowds, streaming the festival from your couch is your best bet. You won't even have to put on pants.
