There’s no need to trek all the way to Indio, Calif., to experience the music of Coachella, the annual festival in the desert that attracts buzz bands and the hipster set. Thanks to YouTube, you can stream the entire festival from the comfort of your own home.

You might not get the full experience of scantily clad C-list celebs and sandstorms, but you do get to keep your air conditioner cranking and enjoy a better view of the bands than most festival-goers. Coachella’s YouTube channel has three different streams each day that play for the entirety of the festival, which runs through April 12. 

A full list of set times are available here. Find your favorite band, pick your channel, make a snack, sit back, and scoff at those silly folks in the desert.
