My Long-Distance Relationship With Coachella

Scroll down to content

Ever since my freshman year of college, watching the live broadcast of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival each year has been a ritual. I think I stumbled upon it one day via YouTube’s homepage and was literally tied to my computer the rest of the weekend, and then the following weekend as well because the genius behind Coachella made it a 2 part deal (thanks dude, no sarcasm intended, I really am grateful).

There are some amazing acts headed to Coachella this year so I’m super pumped as any music fan probably would be.


Though I’ve never been to the music festival, I live vicariously through others via Twitter, Instagram etc., but I try my best to create my own festival experience (flower crowns, dancing all over the place, and camping in my backyard included…jk). Hopefully one day, when college is over, and money is more plentiful, I’ll make my voyage over to the Valley one April. It’ll be the most wonderful love affair.

Below I’ve created my Coachella Weekend 1 watch list, thanks to YouTube for their live broadcast. You will find the time, artist, and the stage each act is performing on, in the order of performance time. I’m super pumped about this lineup this weekend and will soon release my watch list for Coachella Weekend 2.

By no means is this all the artists performing, just some of my favorites that I’m actively seeking out.

Check out the promo video for the live webcast via YouTube.
