The first weekend of Coachella is only ten days away, and for people who can’t make the trip to the desert, there is always a way to enjoy the festival live from the comfort of your home. However, the past editions of Coachella’s Youtube Livestream lacked some depth. There were only a few stages available and therefore a limited number of performances you could catch. Well, this year Coachella and Youtube decided to go all out by offering a chance to stream every single stage.
As a matter of fact, Coachella announced that for the first time, the festival will be livestreamed in full across six separate feeds, and on both weekends. This represents double the amount that they had last year. The livestream experience will feature performances and exclusive merch drops on Coachella’s YouTube channel, plus on-the-ground content with artists, creators, and fans on YouTube Shorts. Here is what the media company had to say about the announcement.
“Every year, Coachella gets bigger and better and every year, we up our game to meet that moment. As we gear up for one of the most global lineups in Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival history, we are going all in to make this year’s livestream experience and YouTube presence the most epic yet!”
The weekend one livestream, sponsored by Fast X, Verizon and NYX Professional Makeup in the U.S., will kick off at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Friday, April 14, and run through Sunday night (April 16). Weekend two, sponsored by Tic Tac and Dove Shower Collection, will begin at the same time on Friday, April 21, before wrapping up on Sunday, April 23.
