YouTube promises some new features for this year’s Coachella experience. Live Chat for streams will be enabled for the first time. Real-time updates to the program will be provided via fixed chats. Some creators will post videos from the festival and there will be exclusive products on Saturday.
Some artists will also be hosting pre-party parties for YouTube Premium members on both weekends. Therefore, between April 15 and 25, those in the US who have not joined Premium before can sign up for a three-month trial period.
When the Coachella Festival was born in the late 90’s, it was considered one of the most respectable alternative music festivals of the day. However, he has recently undergone a transformation that has taken him away from the spirit with which he began more than twenty years ago. Today, many say that music has taken a few steps back and somehow lost the spirit of the festival. Coachella has become another catwalk for celebrities to wear the latest fashion trends.
