Missing #Lollapalooza? Watch live video and social media updates here

Got a case of the Lollapalooza blues?

We know. It’s a difficult world we live in. Not only are we missing one of the most legendary rock festivals of the year, but we are reminded of all the fun we’re missing every time we get on Facebook.

But fear not. To combat that raging case of FOMO you’re sure to experience while hiding out from the August heat this weekend, we suggest even more social media consumption. That’s right, our prescription is a solid dose of streaming video, tweets, Instagrams — the works.

We’ll have the live performances and playbacks right here. We’ll also be curating the best of social media onto our Music Festival Grid.

So grab a cold drink, kick back, listen to our Lollapalooza playlist and make the most of the festival experience from afar.
