It’s that time of the year again: The Coachella Valley in Southern California is about to be overrun by tens of thousands of music fans who are ready to brave three days of 100-degree temperatures to catch a glimpse of roughly 200 bands performing on six stages. This year’s Coachella Festival, which lasts from April 15 – 17, includes performers like Duran Duran, The Strokes, Kings of Leon, Chromeo and many others.
Can’t stand the heat? Didn’t get a ticket? No worries, you can also follow much of the fun online thanks to a YouTube live stream that starts on Friday, the 15 at 4pm PT. Live stream sponsor 5 Gum is promising “three channels of content” including live performances and artist interviews.
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Six stages, three streams — that doesn’t add up. It’s true, you won’t be able to catch each and every performance live on YouTube, but the artists mentioned above will definitely be available. A detailed live stream set list will be available on the Coachella YouTube page some time on Friday before the fun starts. Until then, you can always watch the webcast trailer below:
