Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has renewed its partnership with YouTube, meaning fans at home will continue to be able to stream the festival for free.

The festival (part of events company Goldenvoice) and the streaming giant have partnered for over a decade, with the upcoming April edition marking the 11th year viewers have been able to watch sets, interviews and coverage on YouTube, via YouTube’s own blog.

On top of live streaming sets, there will be behind-the-scenes coverage on YouTube Shorts, as well as Live Chat functions and playlist integration on YouTube Music.
