Lollapalooza is back in person this weekend after a year of streaming-only in 2020, but music fans unable to make it in person can still watch sets online.

Hulu is the exclusive streaming partner for Lollapalooza 2021. It will stream the Chicago music festival to all its subscribers from Thursday through Sunday beginning at 1 p.m. CT each afternoon. A full streaming schedule for all four days — which is subject to change — is included here.

This is a change from the music festival’s partner throughout the last few years, YouTube.

Hulu subscribers don’t have to pay anything extra, and those who aren’t signed up already can get a free trial. All virtual concert-goers have to do is go to the Hulu home screen or go to the search bar and type in, “Lollapalooza.”

The catch of it all is, you have to watch it live. Hulu is streaming the music festival as a live-only event and will not have clips of the performances after they air.

Kicking off their live lineup schedule Thursday will be a performance by the popular former Disney darlings duo Aly & AJ at 1:10 p.m. Headliners this year include Miley Cyrus, Foo Fighters and Post Malone.

If you see an act you’ve never heard of but want to check out, you can do some research before each performance. The site has linked each one to Spotify so streamers can check out their music — you may even discover your new favorite band.

Hulu will regularly update its main Lollapalooza page throughout the weekend with the streaming times based on each time zone, so keep an eye out for any changes or updates.
