For the eighth year in a row, YouTube will broadcast the exclusive live stream from the first weekend of Coachella. The festival -- which kicks off on Apr. 13 and runs through Apr. 15 -- will feature performances from Beyoncé, The Weeknd, ODESZA, Post Malone, The War on Drugs, Kygo, Chromeo, Alan Walker, alt-J and many more available on Coachella's YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile, TV). Though Coachella will also take place April 20 through April 22, only Weekend 1 will be available to stream on YouTube.
Presented by T-Mobile in the U.S., Optus in Australia and Garnier in Canada, viewers will have a choice of four live stream feeds with different artists simultaneously, including one VR180 channel that will allow viewers to experience performances and exclusive on the ground coverage using headsets like Google Cardboard and Daydream View. In the lead-up to the festival, fans can also create personalized viewing schedules featuring the live acts they want to see, with the live streams automatically switching to the pre-selected artist's shows.
Weekend highlights will be available through a video-on-demand hub, with the streams hosted by Jason Bentley from radio station KCRW, along with co-hosts Nadeska Alexis, Valerie Lee and Brittany Eustis, who will interview artists and creators during the weekend.
