Music lovers interested in the Austin City Limits Festivalâ€”but hesitant to travel downtown for the eventâ€”will be able to view a live feed of performances through YouTube, the website will announce today.
The Associated Press reports the Google-owned YouTube will bring live streams to its site for both ACL as well as Lollapalooza, a music festival held in Chicago from Aug. 5â€“7.
By streaming the popular music festival, YouTube management says they hope it will attract millions of viewers. When YouTube streamed the Price William and Kate Middleton wedding, approximately 72 million people logged in to watch the event online.
YouTube says it will offer a live feed of performances as well as a secondary feed for backstage interviews.
