Live on the Lawn is YSTV's live outdoor music show, broadcast to get us out of the studio in beautiful sunshine without the load of a full OB, and often to test out equipment ahead of full OBs such as Woodstock. It is usually performed from the lawn outside our G/046 window, sometimes with links and interviews from within the studio. It affords us the unusual opportunity of having the floor/studio within sight and speaking distance of the gallery.


Some incarnations of Live on the Lawn have been more casual than others, including some unannounced stream tests.
