I was telling some friends that I don't know where to go to get live music concerts anymore, so YouTube Music and YouTube Premium gives you a way to get that content once again.

Lotz says YouTube Music is available for free but YouTube Premium will cost you R59 a month and it allows you to download as well as removing ads.

If you have Google Play Music you automatically get a subscription to YouTube Music Premium.
