Outside Lands, the annual music festival in San Francisco, was off to a rocking start Friday with a performance by legend Paul McCartney.

Tickets were a tough get this year, selling out faster than any year prior. However, like Couchella and Lollapalooza, gigs are live streamed over the weekend, so you won’t miss massive acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix and golden oldies Daryl Hall & John Oates.

One option is to visit Ustream’s official Outside Lands streaming site to see the sets — on two different channels. Some of Saturday’s highlights include Nine Inch Nails and Phoenix; Sunday’s main acts are Vampire Weekend and the Chili Peppers.

Alternatively, TuneIn, a radio streaming app and website, has set up a live “Outside Lands” station. Listeners from all over the world can tune in to the festival on the way to work or in the car — the app is most popular in Germany and the U.K. TuneIn’s team will be stationed in the VIP tent — and will its DJs will provide live coverage and interviews between acts.

The live streaming will continue until Sunday evening — find out more about the fest at sfoutsidelands.com/home
