YouTube to live stream Coachella Weekend 2 for the first time ever

For the first time ever, YouTube will keep the cameras rolling for Coachella Weekend 2 with the exclusive second weekend live stream of the festival! After a record-breaking Weekend 1 live stream earning over 82 million live views — an increase of over 90% compared to views in 2018 Weekend 2 will feature “Coachella Curated,” a new curated live stream of performances sponsored by Pantene & CALVIN KLEIN in the U.S., and Garnier and Coca-Cola in Canada. YouTube is making sure no one misses out on the action, bringing all of the “can’t miss” moments from the desert to music fans all over the world through the immersive live stream available to fans wherever they are.

First-Ever Weekend 2 Coachella Curated and Yuma Tent Live Streams (April 19-21)

Coachella Curated, hosted by Jason Bentley from KCRW, along with special guests, and available to live stream on Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile and living room) and within the YouTube Music app, will take a deep dive into the festival experience and deliver fans a slate of original content. Weekend 2’s curated live stream features select songs and performances from both weekends, artist interviews and commentary, mini-docs, animated adventures and more.

Coachella Curated trains its sights on artists from across the line-up and captures them both onstage and at home — spanning the globe to share stories from the homes of performers like Billie Eilish, Cola Boyy, Idris Elba, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Calypso Rose, Bob Moses, Mr Eazi, and Nina Kraviz. These traveling tales, filmed on six continents with festival founder Paul Tollett, offer a unique look at the international energy that comes together on the Empire Polo Grounds before beaming back out via YouTube.

Confirmed artists appearing in the Coachella Curated live stream display the diversity of talent taking the stage in Indio, from emerging artists Little Simz and Cola Boyy to headliner performers. The multi-genre musical menu also offers chart-toppers, such as Bad Bunny, Jaden Smith, Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, and SOFI TUKKER; festival favorites Bob Moses, Mac DeMarco and RÜFÜS DU SOL; and DJ heroes Dillon Francis, and Nina Kraviz. American acts Maggie Rogers, Khruangbin and Tierra Whack add female-fronted flavors of rock, pop, hip-hop and R&B, while international acts BLACKPINK, Los Tucanes De Tijuana, Calypso Rose, Christine and the Queens, Mr Eazi and Burna Boy showcase the borderless taste and boundary-less sounds of Coachella 2019.

Weekend 2 will also tap into the energy of the Yuma Tent, Coachella’s deep desert disco, broadcasting, for the first time, full DJ sets on a second dedicated channel. The Yuma stream will feature sets by Idris Elba, Guy Gerber, Nicole Moudaber, Deep Dish, Nocturnal Sunshine, and more.

Tune in April 19 – 21 starting at 5 p.m. PDT for an all-new Coachella streaming experience on Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile and living room) and within the YouTube Music app.

Relive Weekend 1 Through Video On Demand Performances and Interviews

Also not to be missed are Weekend 1 interviews from 19-year-old robot, Miquela who spoke with J Balvin, King Princess, and JPEGMAFIA  all of which will air during the Weekend 2 live stream. Miquela spent Weekend 1 hanging out at the YouTube Music lounge as seen here and here. Tune into @youtubemusic and @lilmiquela on social this weekend for additional coverage.

Experience Coachella Through The YouTube Music App

The YouTube Music app (iOS, Android) will be home to this year’s most complete Coachella music experience with the launch of live streaming. Whether you’re at home on the couch or at the pool in Indio, you can enjoy playlists based on this year’s lineup, such as The Lineup, Hip-Hop, Latin, watch or listen in audio-only mode to the live stream both weekends, and check out performance clips after the festival is over on the Coachella YouTube Music channel.
