The Coachella Live Stream Is Almost Like Being There, Except Way Less Sweaty
Not going to Coachella? Don't feel too left out — the butterfly won't be there this year, either.

If you're stuck on the couch this weekend watching your friends' Instagram and Snapchat feeds and having a FOMO mini-meltdown — well, just stop it, now. You have something almost as good as a ticket to Coachella — and maybe even better, since it's a) free and b) doesn't involve standing in line for a porta-potty in 90-degree desert heat. You have the Coachella live stream!
Brought to you by the good folks at YouTube and LiveList, the Coachella live stream lets you view select sets from throughout the weekend in real time, as well as past performances on-demand from such former Coachella headliners as Drake, Kaskade, Axwell /\ Ingrosso and The Weeknd.
LiveList bills itself as "the ultimate guide to discovering live streamed music experiences," with tens of thousands of shows and concerts aggregated from all over the web. Fans using the service can receive notifications when their favorite artists are broadcasting live — so you may never have to leave the couch again.
We can't confirm the full schedule, but keep your eyes on the below player and enjoy your own private, porta-potty–free Coachella experience.
