Everyone’s favorite music festival in the California desert kicks off this weekend in Indio and unless you’re not attending or spending Easter weekend with your parents, you can still experience it all for yourself with YouTube’s interactive 360-degree mode, similar to Facebook’s feature, and stream at least 70 of the first weekend’s act on three different channels showcasing national and international talent.
Radiohead, Lady Gaga, and Kendrick Lamar are set to headline Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively. Lady Gaga was added to the line-up last minute in February, after it was announced that Beyonce was pregnant and would not perform the Saturday night slot in the festival. Beyonce is scheduled to return to Coachella in 2018, and if true, she will become the first black woman to headline the event.
Fans can watch from home as their cult or underground obsessions perform on stage via YouTube. Favorites like Kehlani, Martin Garrix, Nao, Lorde, Banks & Steelz, Schoolboy Q, Sampha, Future, DJ Snake, Tove Lo, Toots & the Maytals, Justice, Mac Miller, Gucci Mane, Kaytranada, and more, are just a handful of the artists that you can choose to watch from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or smart TV. What makes Coachella‘s partnership with YouTube & T-Mobile unlike any other video streaming services, are the interactive features where viewers can choose which acts they’d like to stream, giving them the option to customize their live stream playlist.
Other artists that have yet to be confirmed for a live stream spot include: Stomzy, DJ Khaled, Mura Masa, Lil Uzi Vert, D.R.A.M., Swet Shop Boyz, Chicano Batman, Denzel Curry, HINDS, Majid Jordan. For a full list of artist available on the live stream, click here.
