In June, Lollapalooza organisers announced the 2020 event had been cancelled, revealing a livestream event would be hosted instead.

From July 30 to August 2 (the original dates of the festival), Lolla2020 is streaming over 150 performances via YouTube.

This includes performances from past events by Metallica, Jane’s Addiction and Run the Jewels, as well as specially-curated events.

Festival founder, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, will also be streaming a trio of performances – including a tribute to David Bowie.

In June, Toni remembered the Soundgarden frontman as part of a tribute on Father’s Day.

“Music was our life, so it really created a special bond between the two of us,” she said.

Toni’s Lolla2020 performance comes just days after her sister, Lily, aired the first episode of her podcast, ‘Mind Wide Open.’

The mental health-focused podcast premiered on July 20, marking what would have been the late singer’s 56th birthday.

“If it can make even one person feel seen and heard, I will have accomplished my goal,” Lily said.
