Can't make it to California to see Billie Eilish perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival?

Now you can see most of the performances live at home — with the mammoth event, which runs over two weekends from April 15 to 17 and April 22 to 24, live streaming the sets of more than 40 artists across three YouTube channels.

At present, only Saturday and Sundays performances will be live streamed, meaning Friday shows by Harry Styles, Lil Baby and Phoebe Bridgers will not be available.

However, Saturday's performances remain online with fans able to see the likes of Eilish, rapper Megan Thee Stallion and EDM duo Disclosure on Channel 1.

Channel 2 will show the sets by hip-hop artists such as 21 Savage and Brockhampton as well as Belgian pop star Stromae.

Meanwhile, Channel 3 features performances by indie groups Hot Chip and Japanese Breakfast as well as veteran electronic music group Caribou.

Sunday’s schedule of live performances will begin from 4pm PDT (3am UAE time).

Channel 1 will host the long awaited return of EDM group Swedish House Mafia at 11.05pm, preceded by pop stars Doja Cat and Karol G respectively.

Electronic artist Jamie xx's set will be streamed on Channel 2 at 11.15pm, in addition to earlier shows by fellow British rapper Dave and Filipino singer Beabadoobee.

The highlights of Channel 3's stream include Canadian rapper Belly at 11.30pm as well as prior sets by electronic group Duck Sauce and singer Jessie Reyez.

The full schedule of performances is available on the channels of Coachella's YouTube account. It remains to be seen if the concerts will continue to be available at the conclusion of the festival on Sunday, April 24.

The staging of Coachella marks a massive boost for a US entertainment industry hit hard by the pandemic. Held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, the event is run without social distancing measures, and 125,000 festive goers are expected to arrive daily, many of whom will camp on site.
