Desert, dance, and drones!

It's that time of the year again when some of the biggest names in music as well as the up-and-coming indie performers gather at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California for two weekends of absolute fun and frolic. The annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which has sparked quite a buzz in the recent years amongst music fans, kicks off this Friday, April 13. 

While the first half of the star-studded festival takes place this weekend from April 13 through to April 15; the next half will be unfolding a week later, during the April 20 to April 22 weekend. And keeping all you music enthusiasts' spirits high here's the best news about the 2018 desert-bound festival - Beyonce!

Yes, Queen Bey is back to headlining Coachella after an adorable hiatus - she was heavily pregnant with her twins Rumi and Sir Carter - in 2017. Indeed, her return itself is reason enough to tune into the viewing party - by the way, did we tell you, this year Coachella will be streaming the performances live, for your pleasure. 

And if that's not too tempting, you must know that Formation singer will be joined by two others headliners, The Weeknd and Eminem. 

 

Where to watch the sets live?

Forget long queues and desert heat, thanks to YouTube, you can catch some of the most-awaited performances from the festival on your screens, right from the comfort of your couch. More than 70 acts will be broadcast over four different live streams this weekend, on the official Coachella YouTube channel, with different artists taking the stage during each feature. 

Beyonce will be rocking the main Coachella stage, and her set will go live on Saturday at around 2 am EST. Besides the Lemonade hitmaker's performance, the other artists to look out for are SZA, Perfume Genius, Cardi B, St Vincent, Jack Antonoff’s band Bleachers, and rising artists Chloe x Halle.
