After getting canceled in 2020 due to the unfortunate global pandemic, the Lollapalooza festival opened its gates for the music lovers on July 29 in Chicago and will keep the fans hooked till August 1. Playboi Carti wrapped up the first evening, whereas, the second day’s last performance saw Tyler, The Creator hitting the stage with his latest bangers from his new album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’.

While the attendees had all the fun, the people streaming the music event on Hulu from their couches had to face a glitch that ultimately ended up irritating them. Hulu, which became the streaming partner of Lollapalooza festival for the very first time, live-streamed the performance of electronic DJ Marshmello when they advertised Tyler’s performance. Social media users lost their nerve as they crucified the streaming giant for the glitch. Speaking of the festival, artists like Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, and Roddy Ricch will also grace the festival in the coming days.

Why did Hulu replace Tyler, The Creator's set with Marshmello?

Tyler, The Creator, and Marshmello were lined up on the same day. While a few lucky individuals did not face the issue as they thoroughly enjoyed Tyler’s set from the music festival, a majority of them did get furious over missing out on the rapper performing on his latest songs. The reason behind the glitch is yet to be revealed as Hulu has not yet stepped forward with an official statement, MEAWW will keep you posted.  Prior to his performance at Lollapalooza 2021, Tyler had shared that his performance will be up for streaming on Hulu. “LOLLAPOLOOZA TONIGHT. LIVESTREAMING ON HULU. YUP.”
 
Those who are not able to attend the renowned music festival can opt for Hulu on-demand option which will allow them to live stream the festival from Grant Park, Chicago, and enjoy the sets with no additional costs. The live stream will be available from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm PT till August 2. Hopefully, there won’t be any more glitches.
