If you're bummed that you can't rock out among fellow music lovers at Lollapalooza this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, rest assured knowing that you can safely enjoy the annual music festival from the comfort of your air conditioned home instead.

The Lolla2020 Virtual Festival kicks off Thursday (July 30), and runs through Aug. 2. Artists who will be performing live include Alison Wonderland, H.E.R., Louis the Child, Yungblud, Kali Uchis, and many others. The event will also stream memorable past Lollapalooza performances from Paul McCartney, OutkastMetallica, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lorde, Run the Jewels, and more.

Festival founder and Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell will also be hosting conversations with music icons such as Lars Ulrich and Chuck D, and will perform a David Bowie tribute.

So just how do you watch the highly anticipated event this year? At 6 p.m. ET each night, turn on your smart device and tune in to YouTube, where the festival will air live exclusively. Check out for the full schedule.
