YouTube and Coachella are teaming up once again to stream the 2019 music festival live on the web.
The annual music and arts festival, which takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, started out in 1999 with a weekend of indie rock, hip-hop and electronic music. It has since welcomed artists as wide-ranging as Bjork, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age, the White Stripes, Flaming Lips, Daft Punk, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Arcade Fire, Dr. Dre, Drake and Beyoncé.
In 2019, it returns to span two weekends, running from 12th to 14th April, and 19th to 21st April, with Childish Gambino, Janelle Morae, Tame Impala, Khalid, CHVRCHES, Weezer and Ariana Grande all performing. And, to match that bigger line-up, YouTube is also expanding its relationship with the festival. After eight years of live-streaming the event, YouTube will for the first time stream acts from both of the festival’s two weekends, as part of a three-year renewal of their agreement that was inked last year – a year that saw Beyoncé’s set attract 458,000 simultaneous global viewers, a record for Coachella.
That expanded relationship will also tie into YouTube’s growing push of YouTube Music, and YouTube Premium, its subscription offerings. YouTube Music and YouTube Premium subscribers in the USA were able to purchase a dedication allocation of passes when tickets were released yesterday, available on a first-come-first-serve basis. With all passes for the festival’s first weekend selling out in 40 minutes, though, YouTube’s streaming pact means that fans worldwide will still be able to enjoy this year’s event without leaving the house.
YouTube will stream the first weekend of the festival, as per usual, and will also be the exclusive playlist partner for Coachella, with YouTube Music integration on the Coachella site and app featuring genre playlists and spotlights on emerging acts. Weekend 2 will see a “curated live experience” that includes artist vignettes and behind-the-scenes content.
