YouTube’s Coachella 2024 Free Livestream Will Let You Watch up to Four Stages on One Screen

YouTube is back as the exclusive streaming partner for this year’s Coachella — and it’s introducing a multiview feature that will let fans watch up to four live performances at once.

YouTube’s multiview feature will be available for the first time at this year’s Coachella, and according to the video platform it’s the first time the multiscreen view is available for music and worldwide. The production will be tailored so that viewers can watch up to four of the live stream stages on their TVs at once while listening to the audio of their choice. For the second year in a row, YouTube will provide six livestream feeds to choose from each weekend. That will let fans jump from stage to stage, including from Sonora during the first weekend over to Yuma for Weekend 2.
