Unleash the body glitter: Coachella to livestream both of its weekends this year for the first time ever

Coachella is a vacuous hellscape that’s owned by a climate-change denier, but goddamn does the festival score some good acts. Unfolding across two weekends, this year’s event features Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, and Tame Impala at the top of the card, as well as a supporting roster that includes Janelle Monáe, Kid Cudi, Aphex Twin, Weezer, and Pusha T.

That’s a killer lineup, but not one just anybody can afford. Well, the good news is that Coachella will once again livestream a number of the biggest sets on YouTube. The better news? They’ll be doing it both weekends this time. In the past, Coachella has only streamed sets from its first weekend—like last year’s internet-breaking Beyonce set—but this time around you’ll be able to take in every act your heart desires without having to stand next to whatever the hell Justin Bieber is wearing.


Coachella’s mix of moist abs, vape pens, and corporate logos convene in Indio, California from April 12th to 14th and again from April 19th to 21st.
