When Coachella rolls around this April, couch-bound fans will have double the chances to watch, thanks to an expanded partnership between the festival and YouTube. In addition to live-streaming the first weekend, YouTube will for the first time cover weekend two as well, offering a curated lineup of performances, artist vignettes and behind the scenes videos at the Indio, Calif. festival.
In addition to being exclusive livestream partner for a ninth year, YouTube is now the official playlist partner for the festival, meaning it will handle playlist integration on Coachella's website and app. Additionally, YouTube Music and YouTube Premium subscribers in the U.S. will have exclusive access to a dedicated allocation of passes for purchase for each weekend, when tix go on sale Friday, Jan. 4.
YouTube said members will receive access codes via email just before tix go on sale that can be used to purchase passes from a YouTube Music member cart, available while supplies last.
