Lollapalooza 2023 has kicked off in Chicago’s Grant Park, where last year more than 400,000 fans flocked to the festival’s nine stages.

The four-day event, which rivals Coachella in scope and size, runs from Thursday to Sunday and features a artists including Rina Sawayama, Tems, NewJeans, Maggie Rogers, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sylvan Esso, Fred Again.., Beabadoobee, Sudan Archives and Pusha T. Its headliners are Billie Eilish, Karol G, Kendrick Lamar, the 1975, Odesza, Tomorrow X Together, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lana Del Rey.

And if you aren’t willing to make the trip to Chicago or spend hundreds of dollars on tickets, you can still catch the majority of the acts on your phone, laptop or TV. Here’s how you can tune into the festival from wherever you are.


Where and how can I watch Lollapalooza?

Subscribing to Hulu with ads will cost you $7.99 per month (or $79.99 a year). Eligible students can get ad-supported streaming for $1.99 a month. If you want to go ad-free, it’ll cost you nearly double, at $14.99 each month.

For other packages, such as a bundle with ESPN and Disney+, check out Hulu’s site.

If you’re completely new to Hulu, you can try starting a free trial. Hulu will ask you for your payment information up front, but you can cancel the trial before you are charged and an actual subscription kicks in.

Once you’ve subscribed, you can start streaming Lollapalooza performances.

Which artists will be on the stream?

Although the majority of the festival’s acts will be streamed, some performances are in-person only (think Frank Ocean at Coachella 2023 Weekend 1). Artists who are skipping the stream include Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lil Yachty and Carly Rae Jepsen, as well as bands the Garden and Knocked Loose.

Parking! Public transit! Fan chants! Friendship bracelets! Everything you need to know before you see Taylor Swift at SoFi Stadium for the L.A. stops of her Eras tour.
