YouTube has just cranked up its Coachella channel for the fifth year in a row, bringing fans of the festival multiple live-streams from the Indio, California event, which runs from tonight through Sunday.
It’s not streaming every set, and you won’t quite get the full atmosphere watching from the comfort of your living room (unless you dim the lights, get 50+ friends over, and whack up the volume), but you’ll have one distinct advantage over the festival attendees – you can easily dip in and out of all of the acts playing at any one time across the festival site by jumping between YouTube’s three live channels, and there’ll be no pushing and shoving when you get there.
Brought to you in collaboration with T-Mobile, YouTube’s dedicated site can help you schedule your live-stream experience with a timetable that automatically updates according to your local time and the channel you’re watching.
You can also peruse an interactive map of the entire festival grounds and check out photos taken from your virtual location. Interactive band profiles are also offered.
