Though Coachella 2020 has been postponed due to current events, music fans can still experience the festival through the documentary "Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert," which gives viewers an inside look at Coachella and explores its two decades of history.
The documentary will stream free on YouTube starting April 10 - the same day that the festival was scheduled to start.
"Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert" will be available beginning at 12:00 p.m. PT/3:00 p.m. ET, and features interviews with a number of artists who have performed at Coachella as they discuss their experiences and what the festival means to them. Among the featured artists are Kanye West, Madonna, Moby, Billie Eilish, Daft Punk and Travis Scott. The documentary is produced by Goldenvoice with Hamsterdam and in association with AEG Studios.
With so many A-list artists from a wide variety of genres, the documentary has something to offer every music fan. The press release for the film also promises "behind-the-scenes stories" and "exclusive, never before seen footage," so it's unprecedented access that goes beyond even what anyone would expect to see being at Coachella. It's beyond VIP, and more as if viewers were part of the lineup themselves.
The best part is that it can all be enjoyed, and shared, from the comfort of your home; Goldenvoice is even encouraging fans to use the social media hashtag #COUCHELLA and chat about the film with their fellow viewers. This is America's biggest and best music festival like no one has ever seen it before, and it's coming directly to everyone for free.
Coachella was postponed from its normal April dates until Oct. 9-18, 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Music fans can get the latest updates about Coachella 2020 here.
