YouTube also has plans for acts including Lorde, Bon Iver, The xx, Future, New Order and Gucci Mane.
Sad your love for Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga went unreciprocated in the form of tickets to this year’s sold-out Coachella Festival? Fret not — now you and your posse can don floppy hats, sundresses and/or Ray Bans with neck straps from the comfort of your own man-or-woman cave, where you and yours can watch the proceedings live and direct, as YouTube for the seventh year in a row will live-stream Coachella’s first weekend (April 14-16) and will include sets by the bill’s headlining triumvirate, among many others.
YouTube on Tuesday also name-checked a number of artists on the underbill whose sets will be aired, including Lorde, Bon Iver, The xx, Future, ScHoolboy Q, Two Door Cinema Club, New Order and Gucci Mane.
The Coachella channel will feature three always-on outlets, and for select performances offer a 360-degree mode. A VOD hub also will be available for highlights and footage from throughout the weekend.
New this year is a sneak peek inside Yuma, the confab’s underground dance music tent, and the ability to opt in to get browser alerts when your favorite artists go live. Also being offered is the ability create a personalized viewing schedule which will prompt live stream channels to automatically change to your artist favorites.
The live stream is being presented with sponsor T-Mobile and will allow fans to access Coachella’s YouTube channel via desktop, mobile and living room.
