At some point in the middle of Coachella, as festival fatigue begins to set in, we wish we could just put our feet up on the couch and watch the sets from home. Well, you can do exactly that, no day trip to the desert required.  

YouTube will be streaming select performances from the first weekend of Coachella (April 15-17) on the music festival's video channel.

While the site hasn't announced any specific bands yet, they promise a mix of both "emerging artists and the biggest acts." Expect the full lineup to come out early this week.

The video-sharing website covered Coachella last year as well, but it's rolling out some new additions for the 2016 fest. You'll be able to choose from three different live stream channels, as well as archived footage from throughout the weekend. Viewers can also curate a personalized schedule that will trigger the stream to automatically tune into your selected bands.
