It’s that time of year when music fans clamour from all over to get to the Californian desert for the famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The festival has grown so much since its original 1999 inception that for the past couple of years, it now takes up two weekends. Keeping that in mind, along with that there are understandably a lot more fans who aren’t able to make it to the fest than fans who are, YouTube is continuing their recent tradition of streaming some of artist’s sets live online via 3 channels which you can check out below.

Of course when attending a festival it is a good idea to plan ahead – and that carries over to streaming festivals – so make sure to check the set times here.

Headliners this year are a reunited LCD Soundsystem, a reformed Guns N’ Roses, and umm Calvin Harris. Those acts plus many MANY more will provide a lot of entertainment for fans and viewers. It’s also a great opportunity to catch some of smaller but no less stellar acts such as Anderson .Paak, Låpsley, and Sheer Mag.

Again, be sure to check out those set times, or of course you can just casually watch the the channels below and see plenty of great stuff. Know that if you’re not seeing something you’re already familiar with, then you’ll probably discover something new you’ll end up loving.

Information for Coachella can be found here, and below make sure to watch some of those great musical performances that cool people will be talking about on Monday.
