The Chicago-based music festival will be live streaming past concert shows from their archives every week as organisers decide on the fate of the event.

Lollapallooza is ready to take music lovers back in time by releasing two live stream sets from their archives every week with ‘Lolla From The Vault’ and ‘Perry’s Power Hour’. The announcement was made by the Chicago-based music festival as the ongoing coronavirus outbreak continues to put many music festivals around the world on hold.

The first concert from ‘Lolla From the Vault’ is The Strokes’ Lollapalooza 2010 set. The live stream will kick off later tonight on Thursday, April 30 @ 7pm CT / Friday, May 1 @ 12am GMT.

Later this weekend, viewers can enjoy the first gig from ‘Perry’s Power Hour’ with Alesso’s Lollapalooza 2019 set on Sunday, May 3 @ 7pm CT / Monday, May 4 @ 12am GMT.

The throwback concert sets will be available to stream from the Lollapalooza website as well as on YouTube. We’ve embedded both sets below.


Lollapalooza 2020 is scheduled to take place on July 30 – August 3 at the historic Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois. The annual four-day festival is considered to be one of the premier music festival experiences in the world featuring performances from top artists and bands ranging from rock music to hip-hop and electronic.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic lockdown sees no end in sight as everyone continues to stay at home, devoid of any music festivals to attend to in the coming months. Recently, however, many artists, bands and festivals have flocked to the Internet to host live stream shows in support of charity for COVID-19 relief efforts as well as to promote staying at home during quarantine.
