You don’t need to be in Chicago to know that this weekend’s live stream of Lollapalooza on YouTube is kind of a big deal. Starting Friday at 2:30 p.m. CST, you can catch the streaming sets from 20+ artists live from Grant Park in your living room.

From Friday’s kickoff with Icona Pop (we love it), to Nine Inch Nails’ first U.S. performance since 2009, to Steve Aoki and The Cure closing out the weekend on Sunday, it’s all on YouTube.

Based on search trends, “lollapalooza live” is already the top related search terms to Lolla, which shows that you expect to see a music event like this live on YouTube. And the fastest rising search is for “arctic monkeys lollapalooza,” which means they must have really left an impression on you in 2011. 

Being lazy never sounded so good.
