Coachella is coming up soon and if you’ve been bummed about not being able to score tickets, we’ve got amazing news. YouTube is making it possible for you (and your friends) to rock out to Coachella from anywhere in the world with the first-ever livestream of both weekends.
So far, 34 acts have been confirmed for the livestream, including YG, Billie Eilish, Kacey Musgraves, Blood Orange and The 1975. Additional sets are expected to be added before the festival. This year’s headliners are Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande.
To add to the excitement, if you’ve been keeping up with Donald Glover, you’ll know that he’s been working with Rihanna on a film called Guava Island. The film is directed by Hiro Murai, known for his music videos with multiple artists, including Childish Gambino’s “This is America.” There were multiple ads on Spotify about the film and, according to The Fader, we’re looking at April 13 as the possible premiere date during YouTube’s Coachella livestream.
Mark your calendars for April 12 and subscribe to Coachella’s YouTube channel for all the fun.
