Just like last year, YouTube has announced that it will be livestreaming all three days of the Coachella music festival, which kicks off later today.

The Coachella music festival kicks off later today, but if you can't make it down to California or you just don't like crowds you'll be able to watch everything from the comfort of YouTube. For the second year in a row the concert series will be livestreamed on Google's video service and, despite YouTube's new pay-per-view option, it looks like the stream will once again be free. This year's show includes the likes of The Black Keys, The Shins, and Childish Gambino (also known as Community's star Donald Glover in another timeline). The whole thing will start at 3:55PM PT (6:55PM ET) today when British rockers James take the stage and the performances will likely only be available to watch live — so you better start planning your weekend now.
