Beyoncé, The Weeknd, St. Vincent To Stream Coachella 2018 Weekend One Sets
Couldn't swing the ticket and flight or ride to Coachella weekend one? Not to worry, as several of the performances from the desert festival will be streamed live on YouTube April 13–15, including highly anticipated appearances from GRAMMY winners Beyoncé, The Weeknd, St. Vincent, The War On Drugs, and more.
Fans at home can choose from various live sets across four different YouTube livestreams on weekend one with one channel hosting virtual reality coverage of the action on stage and around the festival grounds, according to Rolling Stone. Enhancing the at-home experience even further, users can create a personalized viewing schedule to make sure they don't miss any of their favorite acts.
The livestream will also feature also get performance highlights and interviews from Coachella hosted once again this year by GRAMMY-nominated KCRW-FM DJ Jason Bentley.
Beyoncé is making her Coachella debut after canceling last year's headlining performance on doctor's orders due to her pregnancy. Queen B's set has gained a lot of buzz as news circulated of extensive rehearsals and elaborate assembly of dance troops. Her performance at the festival comes just as ahead of her On The Run II tour, which will take the superstar to stadiums and arenas across Europe and the U.S. this summer with husband Jay-Z as co-headliner.
The Weeknd heads into Coachella with a No. 1 album in place atop the Billboard 200. The GRAMMY-winning singer dropped a surprise mini-album last week, My Dear Melancholy, that became his third consecutive release to top the charts.
But take note: YouTube will not be streaming Coachella's weekend two festivities, which will take place April 20–22, so this weekend's livestream is your best chance to hear what everyone will be talking about on Monday.
