Great news for rock fans who can't make it out to Chicago's Grant Park this weekend to attend the Lollapalooza 2015 festival!: Sets by a variety of artists, including headliners Paul McCartney and Metallica, will be streamed live online.
The Red Bull TV website is hosting a live stream that will be viewable online over three channels from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. CT each day of the fest, which runs from Friday, July 31, to Sunday, August 2. Among the many other artists whose Lollapalooza performances will be streamed are Florence + the Machine, Alabama Shakes, TV on the Radio, Gary Clark Jr. and many other popular and lesser-known modern-rock acts.
McCartney's set is scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. CT on Friday, while Metallica's performance will start at 8 p.m. CT on Saturday. This will mark the first time one of Sir Paul's shows has been streamed live online in nearly two years.
You can watch the live stream at Lollapalooza.RedBull.TV; the full schedule will be revealed on Thursday, according to Consequence of Sound. To view the festival's complete lineup, visit Lollapalooza.com.
