Coachella

Coachella 2015 kicks off today in Indio, California with weekend one taking place. The iconic fest will be webcasting a number of sets live on YouTube.

It must be said that two of the biggest acts, Drake and AC/DC (and for us Vic Mensa), are notably off this list but I guess it just makes it that much more vital and cooler for the people who actually get to see those performances. However, there are some cool sets available for streaming including the likes of Jack White, Florence and the Machine, Tame Impala, Ryan Adams, St. Vincent, Lykke Li, and Run the Jewels.

Other acts that you can check on the webcast are Belle and Sebastian, Ride, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Alt-J, Alabama Shakes, Father John Misty, Interpol, The War on Drugs, Panda Bear, Tyler the Creator, Jenny Lewis, Cloud Nothings, The Weeknd, FKA twigs, Ratatat, Mac DeMarco, Jamie xx, Perfume Genius, Benjamin Booker, Royal Blood, The Orwells, and more.
