Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced that it will be live streaming all of its stages across both weekends of the event in 2023.
This marks the first time that Coachella will be streaming performances from all of its stages. The livestreams will be available to watch on Coachella’s YouTube channel, with six feeds running across both weekends.
The festival’s first weekend will take place from Friday, April 14 through Sunday, April 16, with the second weekend running from April 21-23. Livestream viewers will be treated to on-the-ground coverage of the art, artists, installations, behind-the-scenes moments and more, capturing the complete Coachella experience for those watching from home. This year’s livestream experience will be even more epic than ever before, with exclusive merch drops on Coachella’s YouTube channel, Shorts activations, and much more.
If you can’t tune in live, the festival sets will be on repeat after the night’s final performance until the live show picks back up the next day. Highlights from many of the weekend’s performances will also be made available on demand.
Last year, YouTube had a powerhouse presence at Coachella, launching several festival-firsts for fans tuning in from home. This year, the platform is giving fans the opportunity to participate in the Coachella experience and interact with their favourite artists on YouTube Shorts. Fans can help build the setlists for some of the biggest artists, producers, and DJs in the world, including Calvin Harris, global superstar Becky G, and Grammy award-winning Burna Boy.
Shorts is also the place where fans can expect to see exclusive content from artists and creators like Alan Chikin Chow, Lexi Hensler, BENOFTHEWEEK, Amelia DiMoldenberg of Chicken Shop Date, Taylor Red TV, The Scotts, Nicole Laeno, Adam W and VIVACIOUSHONEY, amongst others, getting fans hyped up and giving them an unprecedented look at what’s happening IRL (in real life)!
This year, Coachella and YouTube are partnering to drop exclusive merch from over a dozen artists. In addition to a custom Coachella drop, all will be available for purchase directly on the livestream and through YouTube Shorts on Coachella’s channel via YouTube Shopping. From Bad Bunny to Calvin Harris, Gorillaz, Ethel Cain, Fisher, Porter Robinson, YUNGBLUD, and more, don’t miss the chance to grab a custom piece only on YouTube.
This year’s Coachella festival promises to be an unforgettable experience for both attendees and livestream viewers. With all stages being livestreamed across both weekends, exclusive merch drops, Shorts activations, and more, Coachella and YouTube are bringing the festival experience to everyone, no matter where they are in the world.
