Look, we all know the cost of attending Coachella in the flesh can cost a pretty penny. After all, in 2015 ticket sales alone Coachella grossed more than $84m. From your ticket and weekend lodging to the food, drink, vendors, face paint and vintage accessories you’d otherwise buy if you were headed to the polo fields – save a lot by experiencing live from home. Snack endlessly on the cheap. No need to ask for those Coachella donations when you can literally watch from anywhere you have internet connection, for free. Cha-ching!
With the Coachella 2015 festival having record-breaking attendance at 99,000 heads each weekend, this year likely will exceed 100,000 fans chomping at the bit to see and be seen each weekend. Watching the live webcast experience eliminates the stop-and-go traffic, the lines, the bros, the PLUR crews and everybody else you’d rather not experience Coachella with. Not to mention giving you the best view. Nobody wants to see Axl Rose from behind 100k people, have to choose which stage to go to between 10 friends, or try to figure out where their tent is at 4am.
The power of music can be experienced live from around the world as fans are able to discover emerging artists and headlining acts through a live stream un-leashed by T-Mobile via YouTube. In previous years, over 100 artists have streamed live from Coachella. This year’s lineup features the best in the business, and the webcast lineup is the perfect offering for those unable to attend. Stay tuned for the entire streaming lineup, last minute additions throughout the weekend, and expect to be delivered epic live performances across multiple genres!
Yes, there’s an app for that. Of course I remembered my VR headset. It’s 2016, why’d you bring your wallet? Coachella has always been at the forefront of technology, art, music and culture. The main stage will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It’s the first year the festival will be shot and able to be experienced live in 360 virtual-reality, along with plenty of ways for the fan to customize their webcast viewing experience. Speaking of, have you seen the Coachella channel on LiveList? Check it out and add shows to your custom LiveList, set reminders, read interviews, and much more throughout the weekend.
It’s all fun and games until you have to get bailed out of jail and have an unfavorable festival experience. We all know someone who’s been there, done that. Don’t be that person. One way to avoid this is by getting in on the digital action from home. After all, it’s your home so you make the rules. We imagine getting frisked, carded, discarded, or arrested when you’re watching the live webcast from somewhere of your choice is pretty unlikely. #MusicFreedom
