How to stream Coachella 2018 on Android, Chrome OS, Android TV, and Chromecast

As mentioned above, the music festival is being streamed for free on YouTube on the official Coachella channel. Here, you can find four different “channels” that will be playing different bands. Additionally, one of these channels will be streamed in VR, allowing you enjoy a select number of the groups while wearing a Cardboard-compatible headset.

You should be able to access the Coachella YouTube channel from your Android phone, Android TV, or Chrome web browser. You can then cast the streams to your Chromecast-enabled devices to enjoy the experience on the big screen.

And to make sure you don’t miss an artist, you can use the built-in scheduler found on the YouTube channel to get notified when your favorite band takes the stage.
