June 1, 2021 - Today, YouTube announces it is back as the official live stream partner for Coachella 2022, marking its tenth year delivering the coveted festival to music fans around the world.
In 2020, YouTube became the world's largest virtual venue and stage, connecting artists and fans and bringing them together through reimagined live streamed music moments. While Coachella 2020 did not take place, YouTube brought the desert to the living rooms of fans around the world by celebrating Coachella's legacy with the YouTube Originals documentary release of "Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert." Premiering on what would have been weekend 1 of the fest, loyal festival-goers from across the globe tuned into #couchella on YouTube, where they were transported from their living rooms back to the desert in Indio as the festival's creators, performers and so many more reflected back on 20 years of extraordinary Coachella-defining music moments.
Over the years, Coachella has brought many of the world's biggest musicians to its stages including AC/DC, Beyoncé, Calvin Harris, Childish Gambino, Diplo, J Balvin, Kendrick Lamar, Madonna, Radiohead, and countless others. The festival has also provided a stage for some of the world's brightest rising stars at pivotal moments in their careers from Bad Bunny to Billie Eilish, BLACKPINK, Dillon Francis, Lizzo, Rosalía, Post Malone and many more. YouTube's billions of fans have been able to experience many of these monumental performances no matter where they are.
