We COULD tell you everyone who's performing again, but now you'll be able to find out for yourself when you STREAM both events LIVE on YouTube!!!
"For those of us who can't make it — we have YouTube. Be a voyeur to this year's Lollapalooza. Watch as musicians offer their souls and the crowd devours them. You just may forget that you aren't really there."
Here's what YouTube's music marketing programs manager Dana Vetter had to say bout it the streaming deals:
"This allows us to showcase multiple artists each day, which is really exciting to users, and we can hope to expect longer viewing times from people who catch one set and trickle into the next one."
"In the past 12 to 18 months, we've come a really long way in terms of live music. There's a huge audience connected with these things. The trajectory of live music has come a long way and we hope to see it continue."
And even if you don't get to watch the performances live, you'll be able to check 'em out for four weeks following the festivals! Awesome!
What do U think about this? Will U attend Lollapalooza and/or Austin City Limits via YouTube?
