[Update] It is on! The livestream is now underway on sfoutsidelands.com, on AOL, on Go90 (which also offers archived performances for on demand viewing) and on your mobile device via the Go90 app for iOS or Android. You can find this weekend's full livestream schedule below.

This weekend’s Outside Lands music festival, food booth extravaganza and large-scale Burning Man VIP tent has its own version of a "gift economy" — they’re generously streaming a bunch of select Outside Lands performances online for free, as they have since 2009. The festival just announced which Outside Lands acts are streaming online this year, so we ticketless, stay-at-home riffraff can still indulge in the live performances, people-watching and general good-time vibe of the massive event without getting dusty or schlepping out to the park. Looks like we won’t see Radiohead on the free livestream, but this year’s Outside Lands webcast will carry live performances from LCD Soundsystem, Zedd, Lionel Richie, and most importantly, The Muppets' Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (plus 38 other bands, at current count).

[Update] Not all of the livestreams will be "live", which is to say that several of these performances will be presented on tape delay (Duran Duran, for instance, will perform live Friday night but their webcast will play Saturday night.) I will update this regularly with any changes ‘cause I’m doing fuck-all this weekend except laying around and watching Outside Lands stream on the big TV.


The livestream performances, beginning at 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will play automatically when you visit sfoutsidelands.com. (AOL claims to be streaming it too, but does not provide a URL). This year’s broadcast is being handled by streaming partner Go90, and mobile device watchers can tune in via the Go90 app for iOS or Android.
