Music festivals are a great opportunity to see a bunch of your favorites bands all at once, sometimes simultaneously on side-by-side stages where you can run back and forth and make your musical dreams come true. Unless, of course, that sounds like a complete nightmare to you and you would rather clean the floor of Grand Central station with your tongue than watch Cold War Kids amid the huddled masses. Luckily, this year’s Coachella Music Festival, which runs from April 15-17, has solutions for everyone.
With Wiz Khalifa, Broken Social Scene, Men, The Kings of Leon, !!!, The National, Black Keys, Robyn, Arcade Fire, Duran Duran, Interpol, The Strokes, Cut Copy, PJ Harvey, Titus Andronicus, Foals, the Kills, YACHT, and a lot more slated to play, this year’s Coachella Music Festival might be worth braving the throngs of people. However since the festival is this weekend, if you don’t have tickets yet, you’re probably not going. Don’t worry because via the wonders of modern technology, you can watch Coachella minus the crowds. At home. On your couch. In sweatpants. The festival is webcasting the concert via their YouTube page, so agoraphobes and other housebound music fans can catch the show. Here’s the trailer for the event:
