Millions of people around the planet who will not be able to attend this year's Coachella Festival will be able to watch some of the performances on YouTube again this year.
Sad your love for Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga went unreciprocated in the form of tickets to this year's sold-out Coachella Festival? Additionally, for the first time cameras will be present inside the underground dance-music Yuma tent. If you're into 360-degree livestreams, select performances will feature a special mode that does just that. While the schedule tool on YouTube will automatically switch the stream when a preselected artist hits the stage, you can also opt-in for browser alerts. Additional webcast participants are said to include Bon Iver, Father John Misty, The xx, Lorde, New Order, Future and Schoolboy Q. Highlights and footage taken over the course of the weekend will also be available on-demand.
Don Rickles dead at 90
Etta Rickles had befriended Frank Sinatra's mother, Dolly, and persuaded her to encourage her son to check out Don Rickles' act. The famous comedian died today at his house at Los Angeles from kidney failure as the publicist Paul Shefrin announced.
Not every Coachella devotee will be able to be there in person, so the YouTube live streaming coverage is likely to be the next best option.
For the fourth year running, YouTube is set to serve as the exclusive streaming partner for famed music festival Coachella.
