Coachella on Youtube

YouTube on Android makes streaming the annual festival easier than ever

I'm getting old, so hanging out in the desert with 100,000 sweaty music fans isn't quite as much fun as it used to be. But I won't be missing out on Coachella this weekend just because I crave soft beds, warm showers and indoor plumbing. YouTube once again will be streaming three days of music.

Stars and Jake Bugg kick things off at 3:30 p.m. PDT Friday, with Teean and Sara and How to Destroy Angels (that's Trent Reznor & Co's new gig) closing things out in the wee hours. Saturday sees a ridiculous lineup including Baauer (be sure to thank him for all this Harlem Shake nonsense), Dropkick Murphys, Ben Howard, Puscifer, Violent Femmes, the Descendants, Janelle Monae, Phoenix, Moby and New Order. On Sunday there's The Gaslight Anthem, Social Distortion, Vampire Weekend, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Dinosaur Jr., the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Dead Can Dance closing it all out.

Consider all that for a minute, and consider that because Android has the best mobile YouTube experience, you'll not miss a second of the music. It really is an awesome experience, all from the safety and comfort of your living room. Or the bathroom. We don't judge. Watch on your phone or tablet. Or with Google TV (or, gasp, the Nexus Q). Or in your Chrome browser.

Live this weekend: Catch Coachella on YouTube


And "The Descendants" should be The Descendents. Yes, the correct spelling of the band name is a misspelling of the real word. But that's how they did it.

Infected Mushroom is playing as well. They are supposed to be doing their visual show which will blow your mind. Seriously, everyone should at least see part of their performance and see what you think.

Thanks for the reminder, Phil!
