YouTube to stream Lollapalooza live all weekend: Watch it here

As music citizens of the world are well aware, the always epic Lollapalooza kicks of today in Chicago. Those lucky enough to make it out to Grant Park will be treated to three days of the likes of New Order, Kendrick Lamar, Ellie Goulding, Nine Inch Nails, the Postal Service,  the Cure, and too many other acts to name here. (Among those attendees: our own Kyle Anderson, who’ll be delivering breaking news and festival recaps on Music Mix all weekend.)

But if you’d rather take it all in without leaving your air-conditioned laptop perch, you’re covered too: Lollapalooza will be streaming live on YouTube all weekend. Dubbed “#Lazypalooza,” the online event will begin today at 3:30pm ET, when Icona Pop kicks off the festival with a set that will surely include “I Love It,” and it won’t stop until festival headliners the Cure says it does on Sunday night.

In other words, you have no excuse to show up to work Monday not knowing that [insert crazy thing that will happen] happened. And to make things even easier for you, we’ve embedded the videos (one for each day) for you below. Enjoy responsibly: READ FULL STORY

iHeartRadio Music Festival 2013 lineup announced: Katy Perry, Elton John, and more

Elton John and Ke$ha, united at last.

Sort of: Clear Channel’s iHeartMusicFestival has released the full lineup for its annual shindig, with artists ranging from Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and, yes, Sir Elton and Ke$ha slated for the show.

The festival, where Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong infamously had an onstage meltdown last year, will once again take place in Las Vegas, going down over Sept. 20-21. It’ll all be broadcast live across Clear Channel stations and then air on CW on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

This year also brings a new addition to the event: the iHeartRadio “village,” featuring the likes of Miley Cyrus, the Wanted, Avril Lavigne, and more. Take a look at the full lineup(s) below: READ FULL STORY

Governors Ball, Day 1: Lots of weather, some music, no Kings of Leon

Feist-Governors.jpg

The British have a lot of weird old traditions, but perhaps the most peculiar one is their annual insistence on hanging out in the rain and mud to listen to music. Every year, thousands of otherwise normal-seeming Britons convene in the farms and parks of Reading and Leeds with the knowledge that they and their loved ones have a high chance of getting soaked. And the sick part is, they seem to enjoy it.

From what I could tell, the majority of people at the opening day of the Governors Ball Festival on New York City’s Randall’s Island were not British, and did not enjoy it. Yet amid a relentless battery of heavy rains and high winds courtesy of Tropical Storm Andrea, the festival did its best to keep calm on and carry on by sticking to their schedule of artists, which included Erykah Badu, Local Natives, Young the Giant, Best Coast, and more. At a certain point, though, you gotta know when to call it, and the Gov Ball organizers were forced to cancel the party before the night’s headliners, Kings of Leon and Pretty Lights, had a chance to take the stage. (To make up for it, Kings of Leon is now scheduled to play this evening.)

What began as as intimate little outlet for indie bands and the people who love them has famously become a giant Pepsi Doritos playground for household-name brands like Justin Timberlake and Prince and Green Day.

And since Music Mix has already given you the skinny all the JT and GD happenings of the week, it’s time to go over the festival’s undercards. Our SXSW staff has each selected some of their favorite moments from the week:

How Myspace hides a secret Justin Timberlake SXSW show -- PHOTOS

Austin’s South by Southwest music festival wraps up today, but every year there are “secret” shows by top artists in relatively modest venues, frequently revealed only to the media at the last minute.

But some are more secret than others. A truly secret show is one that 99.8 percent of festival-goers only find out about after it happens. (“Oh my god, did you hear that Jack White joined Dave Grohl for a jam session in a South Lamar tanning salon at 4 a.m. last night? It was amazing!”)

For its supposedly secret Justin Timberlake show, however, sponsor Myspace set a new bar in non-secret obviousness.

The story started off perfectly. The media first got wind of the Justin Timberlake show when the Austin Police Department, of all places, leaked it. That has just the right kind of odd and non-official yet authoritative sourcing that you want for a secret show. (And hey, APD, if you can tell me what time Oz: The Great and Powerful is starting tonight at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, that would be great, too.)

But then once SXSW got underway, there was this on the side of an 800-capacity music venue on a heavily trafficked downtown intersection:
