One of the biggest music festivals of the year starts in two days. Lollapalooza 2014 will rock the city of Chicago August 1-3 with some of the biggest names in the music industry. Bands and artists such as CHVRCHES, Arctic Monkeys, Eminem, Outkast, and Lorde are sure to thrill the thousands who will gather in Chicago’s Grant Park, rain or shine, but you can enjoy the performances from the comfort of your own home.

Let’s face it, not all of us have the time, money, or leeway with our bosses needed to just pick up and fly to Chicago for a 3-day weekend (plus Monday for some much needed recuperation). No problem! Many of this year’s performances will be streaming live on Redbull.tv. Maybe watching from home isn’t the same as being there in person to drink in the atmosphere and positive vibes, but it’s a close second for those who don’t want to miss their favorite artists performing live.

You can see the full schedule here or go straight to Redbull.tv and set up reminders so that you don’t miss a minute of the action from your favorite performers.

Elton And Kanye, Bonnaroo Buddies!

Ok, well maybe they’re not “buddies,” per se, but this morning Reuters announced that music industry titans Elton John and Kanye West will both be performing at this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. They will be joining the likes of Lionel Richie, Arctic Monkeys, Jack White, and Ice Cube along with many other artists and bands scheduled to play at the 4-day party-fest.

The “Piano Man” has taken top-billing for this year’s Bonnaroo festival, but the question on everybody’s mind has got to be not “if,” but “how” will Kanye attempt to steal the spotlight. Let’s face it, he isn’t exactly known for his laid-back attitude or humility. In 2008 Kanye performed at Bonnaroo, but began his set 8 hours late. The following year he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards by grabbing a mic and practically worshiping Beyoncé on national TV. Let’s hope this year’s Bonnaroo performance is a step in the right direction for the controversial artist.

Sir Elton, on the other hand, is thought of by many as the epitome of class. In a career that has spanned 5 decades he has sold more than 300 million records and recorded over fifty top-40 hits, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. His honors don’t stop there, however, as in 1998 Elton John became “Sir” Elton John, knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his multiple charitable contributions, including the establishment of the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1992.

Bonnaroo takes place June 12-15 in Manchester, TN, about 65 miles southeast of Nashville. Approximately 80,000 people (“Roonies”) are expected to attend.

There’s no doubt that it’s going to be a hell of a party, but why wait? You can hold your own “Kararoo” with Karaoke Cloud and Sing-N-Share! Check us out today.
