How to stream Lollapalooza this weekend

Because a Hulu subscription is way cheaper than a Lolla four-day pass.

In case the ongoing stage set-up process in Grant Park hasn’t tipped you off yet, Lollapalooza is once again headed to downtown Chicago for a four-day musical extravaganza this weekend. The city’s largest summer festival—which typically hosts around 400,000 attendees—will bring a packed slate of performers to Grant Park, including Metallica, Dua Lipa, J.Cole, Green Day and BTS’s J-Hope, among a long list of other genre-spanning acts.

Not planning on attending this year? You can still get in on the festival action from home, thanks to Lollapalooza’s live streaming partnership with Hulu. The streaming platform will livestream select acts from all four days of Lolla, from headlining performances by Kygo and Machine Gun Kelly to comparatively smaller artists like Tove Lo, The Wombats, Tinashe, Djo and Beach Bunny (for a full schedule of performances, visit Hulu’s website). 

Of course, you’ll need to have a Hulu subscription to tune in, but that’s still a good deal cheaper than shelling out for $350 GA four-day passes—and if you manage to scoop a week-long free trial, you could even eke out an at-home Lolla experience without spending a cent. It’s not quite like the real deal, but hey, at least you won’t be rubbing elbows with thousands of sweaty festivalgoers out in Grant Park!
