YouTube already lets you view live streams of music festivals like Coachella from the comfort of home, but if holographic rappers aren't to your taste, this weekend you can check out the very first stream of the New Orleans Jazz Fest. The free broadcast actually kicked off yesterday, and you'll be able to watch performances all the way until Jimmy Buffett's closing set on Sunday at 8:00PM CDT. And despite the name, the show has a pretty diverse line-up of acts — there's everyone from Ziggy Marley to Tom Petty to Mystikal. YouTube says that the broadcast will combine live performances and pre-recorded highlights from last weekend's show (when the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Cee Lo Green played), and you can check out the complete schedule here.
