Tune in now to Coachella
The Coachella experienced is overrated. It’s in the middle of a desert, outside a boring city, and with little in the way of travel alternatives or on-site hydration.
Thankfully, for the third year in a row, the annual music festival will stream live on its YouTube channel.
Starting at 3:30pm PT Friday, you'll have access to some of the biggest acts—The Postal Service, Phoenix, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers—across five stages on three separate channels and for all three days of the fest. It's a stacked lineup, with streams of Divine Fits, Alt-J, Jake Bugg, Sparks, Nick Cave's Grinderman, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blur, and select highlights from the Stone Roses reunion all available in a matter of mere hours.
Some of the shows will air simultaneously, so you may have to choose between your favorite acts. But it’s a lot faster to switch channels than it is to trek across the Indio campgrounds and fight the crowds.
YouTube has become a premier destination for major events, such as the 2012 Presidential Election coverage, Felix Baumgartner's freefall from space, and even Psy's debut of his followup to "Gangnam Style."
Stay at home this year. You'll be much more comfortable that way.
