For the first time in three years, Coachella is back live and in person, as the 2022 edition of the popular music festival returns to its familiar fairgrounds in Indio, Calif. While it will be great to see fans and musicians together once again, if you’ve enjoyed getting to watch incredible Coachella performances from the comfort of your home during the pandemic, don’t worry, "Couchella" is still a thing this year.

While fans have been waiting for Coachella to return to its traditional in-person format since 2019, it’s been a great opportunity for music fans around the world to experience and one the festival appears happy to continue with partner YouTube, which in addition to live streaming performances has Coachella curated playlists that people can listen to on YouTube Music.

This has become a trend among major music festivals, including Lollapalooza, which is also expected to be streamed live again this year.

Here is everything you need to know about how to watch Coachella online, including who will be performing as part of the Coachella lineup.

In addition to providing the live streams, YouTube Shopping will also let those at home purchase merchandise from the festival and artists.
