Coachella 2023 is upon us — and just like that, we return to the desert for another installment of the annual six-day, two weekend festival. And now, we brace for the third and final day of a successful weekend 1. A cultural staple with music, art, and fashion at the forefront, Goldenvoice & AEG are bringing a multitude of artists across an array of genres, including but not limited to, dance/electronic, pop, rock, alternative, indie, rap, R&B, hip-hop, k-pop, and more.
Can’t be there in person? Join in on the action with the annual “Couchella” live stream broadcast. Things are a bit different (for the better) this year, as Coachella partners with YouTube as the official live stream partner and will broadcast six different stages across six different channels. This weekend (April 14-16) and next weekend (April 21-23) use the hashtag #CoachellaOnYouTube on social media to interact with others tuning in around the world.
Following two massive days, including a big day 1 (Friday, April 14), and even bigger day 2 (Saturday, April 15), we’re gearing up for this week’s closer, day 3 (Sunday, April 16). This year’s headliners for Coachella 2023 include Bad Bunny (Friday), BLACKPINK (Saturday), Calvin Harris, returning to the desert (Saturday), and Frank Ocean (Sunday).
During weekend 1, day 1 of Coachella, some highlights included the surprise Blink-182 performance at Sahara, which was undoubtedly one of the fest’s biggest moments in years. The nostalgia and setlist from the guys was enough for them to headline the festival — and maybe they should have. Some other surprises from weekend 1, day 1 included surprise guests The Weeknd, John Legend, Diddy, Future, 21 Savage, and Don Toliver during Metro Boomin’ closing out the Sahara tent, Bebe Rexha during Two Friends at Sahara, and Post Malone during Bad Bunny.
Highlights from Coachella 2023 day 2, weekend 1, included Calvin Harris’ return to the desert to close out the Coachella stage along with special guest Ellie Goulding. The only complaints we have about Calvin’s set is that it should have been longer, so that his greatest hits of a set could have lasted longer, and maybe even had some additional surprise guests. Although he closed the main stage, perhaps he should have been the official headliner. Other day 2 weekend 1 highlights included Eric Prydz pres. HOLO from the Outdoor Theatre (the first time he’s ever live streamed this show concept), Labrinth with special guest Billie Eilish, SOFI TUKKER at the Outdoor Theatre, the Kid LAROI from Sahara, Chromeo at Mojave with special guest Laroux, Elderbrook at Sahara, Charli XCX at the Coachella Stage, Tale Of Us from the Sahara tent, surprise set from ODESZA at Do LaB, and rising New Jersey artist, 070 Shake.
Here are the official Coachella 2023 set times for day 3, weekend 1. Lineup and times are subject to change and may be different for weekend 2. YouTube announced that weekend 1 would air the Sonora stage during the weekend 1 live stream, and weekend 2, the channel will air the Yuma stage instead.
Be sure to check this space for the official live stream set times ahead of the broadcast start at 4pm PST/7pm EST. For now, relive yesterday’s performances with the Coachella live stream replay, happening as we speak.
