Can’t make it to California to see Billie Eilish perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival?
You can now catch most of the performances live at home – with the gigantic event, which takes place over two weekends from April 15-17 and April 22-24, streaming live sets from over 40 artists on three YouTube channels.
At this time, only Saturday and Sunday performances will be shown live, which means Friday shows from Harry Styles, Lil Baby and Phoebe Bridgers will not be available.
However, Saturday’s performances remain online with fans able to see Eilish, rapper Megan Thee Stallion and EDM duo Disclosure on Channel 1.
Channel 2 will show sets from hip-hop artists such as 21 Savage and Brockhampton as well as Belgian pop star Stromae.
Meanwhile, Channel 3 features performances from indie bands Hot Chip and Japanese Breakfast as well as veteran electronic band Caribou.
Sunday’s live performance schedule will start from 4 p.m. PDT (3 a.m. UAE time).
Channel 1 will host the long-awaited return of EDM group Swedish House Mafia at 11:05 p.m., preceded by pop stars Doja Cat and Karol G respectively.
Electronic artist Jamie xx’s set will air on Channel 2 at 11.15pm, in addition to previous shows from fellow British rapper Dave and Filipina singer Beabadoobee.
Highlights of the Channel 3 stream include Canadian rapper Belly at 11:30 p.m. as well as earlier sets from electronic band Duck Sauce and singer Jessie Reyez.
The full performance schedule is available on the Coachella YouTube account channels. It remains to be seen whether the concerts will continue to be available after the festival on Sunday 24 April.
The staging of Coachella marks a huge boost for an American entertainment industry hard hit by the pandemic. Held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, the event is taking place without social distancing measures, and 125,000 partygoers are expected to arrive daily, many of whom will be camping on site.
