How to watch Lollapalooza shows online for free

Lollapalooza, a weekend-long music festival of some repute held in Chicago’s Grant Park, kicks off in two days—but you’re not, like, going, are you? Because plenty of it will also be online.

Yes, there’s a pleasant digital respite from the sweaty crowds and scalpers’ prices: More than 50 bands’ performances will be available to stream on a Redbull.tv webcast. Check the official trailer to get jazzed about it, then skim the schedule below to figure out your can’t-miss sets. 

 

As with the festival itself, you’ll have to make some hard scheduling choices: the number following each act’s name corresponds to one of three channels where the music will air. All times pm and CT.
