Hulu has acquired the exclusive streaming rights to Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits through 2023.
Subscribers to Hulu’s subscription video on-demand tier will be able to watch separate livestreams of the three music festivals at no additional cost, in addition to bonus behind-the-scenes footage. Hulu previously streamed the 2021 Lollapalooza festival but will now have access to the three festivals produced by Live Nation’s C3 Presents.
“Hulu and Live Nation are both committed to delivering exceptional entertainment to fans, so we are thrilled to be collaborating with them, again, as we expand our offering to include these three legendary festivals,” said Hulu president Joe Earley in a statement. “Each event is unique, but all three bring people together for incredible music, artistry, and experiences, which we are fortunate to be able to share with Hulu subscribers.”
“By expanding our partnership with Hulu, even more fans will be able to tune into each of these incredible festival experiences in real-time and enjoy live performances from their favorite artists with the fans on-site,” Walker said.
Bonnaroo will take place from June 16-19 in Manchester, Tennessee, with performances from Stevie Nicks, Machine Gun Kelly, The Chicks, Roddy Ricch and J. Cole.
Lollapalooza will happen from July 29-31 in Chicago’s Grant Park with a lineup that includes Metallica, Dua Lipa, Green Day, Doja Cat and Jazmine Sullivan.
Austin City Limits, which will feature sets from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, P!NK, SZA, Kacey Musgraves, Paramore and Lil Nas X, will take place over the first two weekends in October.
Hulu’s livestream schedule for the three festivals will be announced in the weeks leading up to the events.
