For Weekend 1, YouTube will let viewers watch shows and interviews live from the Indio, California music festival.
For the eighth year in a row, YouTube will broadcast the exclusive live stream from the first weekend of Coachella. The festival — which kicks off on Apr. 13 and runs through Apr. 15 — will feature performances from Beyoncé, The Weeknd, ODESZA, Post Malone, The War on Drugs, Kygo, Chromeo, Alan Walker, alt-J and many more available on Coachella’s YouTube Channel on any screen (desktop, mobile, TV). Though Coachella will also take place April 20 through April 22, only Weekend 1 will be available to stream on YouTube. (Billboard)
In early April, buzz developed about Beyoncé putting in a ton of work for her Coachella performances.
Sources close to Queen B tell us … she started getting serious about practicing for her show Tuesday, scheduling 11-hour days in a high-profile L.A. studio that’s been booked solely for her and her dancers, choreographers, technicians and other members of her crew. We’re told there are 7 security guards patrolling the studio inside and out to keep the rehearsals top secret … no unwanted guests or recordings. (TMZ)
Last month, Bey hyped up fans about getting her body right for her Coachella shows.
In January, Coachella’s tickets easily sold out in less than an hour.
The Weekend One general admission passes, which go for $429, were sold out in about 35 minutes, while the GA plus shuttle, which go for $504, sold out in about an hour. Weekend Two passes also went fast. General admission has also already sold out. (Desert Sun)
