    Lollapalooza announced today that it has partnered with Hulu to livestream this year’s festival. It’s the first time the long-running Chicago event has teamed with the Disney-owned streaming service.

    According to a report from Billboard, subscribers to the streaming platform will have access to all four days of the 2021 festival, which is set to take place July 29th through August 1st at Chicago’s Grant Park. The livestream will be accessible each day from 11:00 a.m. PT to 8:00 p.m. PT.

    “We are thrilled to be partnering for the first time with Hulu for this year’s livestream and are excited that the Lollapalooza fans who cannot be with us in Chicago have such a great platform to experience the show,” read a statement from Courtney Trucksess, sponsorship director for the festival’s promotor, C3.

    Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, and Tyler, the Creator will serve as the headliners of this year’s Lollapalooza, which marks the events 30th anniversary. Other artists taking to the festival’s various stages — and Hulu screens — include the likes of Journey, Megan Thee Stallion, Limp Bizkit, DaBaby, BROCKHAMPTON, Illenium, Kaytranada, and more.

    More info, including the eventual reveal of the livestream schedule, can be found at Hulu’s website.

    In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Lollapalooza’s organizers assured fans that the festival would return to full capacity this year. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot even stepped in to help spread the message that health and safety will remain a major priority in bringing the event back to life, saying back in May, “Armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city’s most iconic summer music festivals.” As such, attendees will be required to show either proof they’ve been vaccinated or a negative COVID test at least 24 hours prior to the festival.
