CHICAGO — Miss out on Lollapalooza tickets? Can't bear to leave the A/C? Hate touching sweaty strangers?

That doesn't mean you have to miss out on Chicago's biggest summer festival.

You can hear the music, eat the food and follow the action online from the comfort of your apartment — and you won't even have to wait in line for the bathroom. Wear your pajamas, invite some friends over, and crowd-source Lolla instead of braving the crowds:

Follow the Action

Shorthand hashtag #Lolla will be a more popular Twitter trend than the full #Lollapalooza, but both will be full of pics, video and the feel of the fest from the front lines. Also follow DNAinfo Chicago reporter Emily Morris at @EmilyMorris21.

And if your favorite band didn't make the live stream cut, follow their name as a hashtag and crowd-source their set when they perform. See the schedule for Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
