You know the lineup, you've listened to our playlist and you've planned your boho-chic weekend outfits — but what about the festival itself? Although it's a tad too late to book yourself a plane ticket to Coachella, there's nothing like a live stream to get in on the action. Gather your best mates, set up a teepee and put on some war paint while the night's still young.
When to watch
Coachella starts on Friday, 15 April at 3.30pm Pacific time. This means you should set your alarm for Saturday, 16 April at 6.30am. Yep, rise and shine, folks.
One of the most successful international music festivals, Coachella's diverse lineup is what dreams are made of. Featuring newcomers such as Låpsley and Alessia Cara and an oldie-but-goodie Guns N' Roses, you'll also catch touring acts currently making their way across the globe: Grimes, M83, Skepta and the like. See the lineup below.
The Coachella Stage is the main one to look out for — it's where the headliners will be performing. Below's a brief schedule of some notable acts on the first day. View more set times here.

Where to stream
Coachella will be streaming live on YouTube. This year, they've even included a custom scheduling feature, so you can select which sets you want to see and the stream will automatically switch. Connect YouTube onto your television set for a bigger screen. If you have a virtual reality headset like the Google Cardboard or a Samsung Gear VR, you can download the Coachella VR app for iPhone and Android and experience the festival from the comfort of your couch.
