Bernie Sanders is hosting a huge rally and concert in Los Angeles tonight! You can watch the GOTV concert on live stream above. The rally concert will be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Olympic Plaza. Doors to the rally will open at 4 p.m. local time, but livestreams typically don’t start at the same time that doors open. The livestream above should convert to a full replay of Sanders’ speech after the rally is over.
What time does the live stream begin? Although Sanders’ campaign hasn’t stated a specific time that he will start speaking, the rally livestreams typically begin two to three hours after the doors open. The livestream above’s countdown indicates it will start around 8 p.m. Eastern. However, the streams didn’t start at 8 p.m. Eastern and some are saying they won’t start until after 10 p.m. Eastern.
Sometimes the rally livestreams get delayed for a little bit or may not start until after the music ends and Bernie Sanders begins speaking. It isn’t uncommon for a livestream to be a full hour behind its original countdown or more. So if it doesn’t start right away, keep checking back or leave it running in the background.
If the livestreams don’t work, you can also check Live Satellite News’ livestream videos at this link. They typically add a livestream for each of his rallies, with a replay of the most recent rally running at the link until the new rally begins. Bernie2016tv may also add a livestream at this link. There may also be a separate livestream below:
If you plan to attend in person, the event is free but you’re asked to RSVP online if possible. Limit what you carry to small, personal items and don’t bring bags due to security concerns. Also, security won’t allow in weapons, sharp objects, chairs, signs or banners. People will be allowed inside on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early if you can. Some people even line up an hour or two before the doors open to get into Sanders’ rallies. The public entrance is off South Figueroa Street.
Cash-only parking is available in the visitor lot, and lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. If you take public transit, use the Metro Expo line and the Expo Park/USC stop or the Expo/Vermont Stop, or use Metro Bus number 81 with the South Coliseum Dr. stop, according to Sanders’ website.
Sanders and his supporters are showing no signs of slowing down. Sanders held a rally in Sacramento, California and an estimated 21,000 people attended. You can see photos and read stories from people who attended in this article.
