Music festivals are back in full swing, and you can stream some of the most popular ones from wherever you are.

In 2023, three prolific festivals — Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits — exclusively streamed live on Hulu. Viewers needed only a basic subscription starting at $7.99 a month to tune in, but Hulu hasn’t revealed if it’ll stream the festivals in 2024.

Keep reading for more details on each festival — including an expanded list of other key music events happening this year.

How to watch Bonnaroo live

The 2024 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will jam out June 13–16 in Manchester, Tennessee. The four-day event will feature electronic, rap, and rock headliners like Post Malone, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Fred Again.

There hasn’t been any official word on whether Bonnaroo will stream live on Hulu in 2024. Unfortunately, none of last year’s performances are available on demand through the service. But you can find select recaps on YouTube.

How to watch Lollapalooza live

Lollapalooza returns to Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois, during the first weekend of August. Hulu will likely stream the four-day festival again, as an exciting lineup of over 170 bands will play across nine stages.

While Hulu hosted Lollapalooza in the past, none of those live sets are available to watch on demand through the streaming service. But you can find many past performances on each artist’s YouTube page. (We frequently rewatch Tyler, The Creator’s 2021 Lolla set for its pure, contagious energy.)

Live virtual concerts aren’t as popular as they were in 2020 and 2021. But there are still several ways to watch full music shows online.

YouTube is one of the most accessible websites for streaming live music. Its YouTube Music streaming service populates a free Live Performances playlist, featuring anything from award show performances to studio sessions.

Streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Max, and Netflix also host several on-demand concert films and documentaries. But Paramount+ is the go-to destination if you want MTV and VH1 content like “MTV Unplugged” and “Behind the Music.”

Let’s move on to how to stream music festivals FAQ.
