Frank Ocean, the notoriously elusive singer-songwriter, made his triumphant return to the music scene on April 16, 2023, as the Sunday night headliner of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. This marked his first live performance in six years, and fans were thrilled to see him back in action.
While the festival drew in hundreds of thousands of attendees from around the world, those who couldn’t make it to the event in person could still enjoy all the musical performances. For the first time in the festival’s history, Coachella live-streamed all six stages via YouTube, and viewers from home could catch all of their favorite artists’ sets from start to finish for free.
This year’s live stream began with Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, followed by GloRilla, on the main stage at 2:30 pm local time. Before Frank Ocean’s much-anticipated performance, big-name artists like Björk, Sudan Archives, and Kali Uchis warmed up the stage.
Frank Ocean took to the main stage at 10:05 pm local time, and fans were thrilled to see him perform hits like “Super Rich Kids” and “Blonde.” Some fans are speculating that his headline slot might mean that new music is on the horizon.
If you missed the live stream, don’t worry. The Coachella YouTube page is uploading performances as each day of the festival goes by. This means you can watch your favorite act perform at any time. They are also running “Replays” of each festival day. So, if you can’t tune into the live stream at the exact set time, you can recap the performance later on.
And for those who couldn’t attend the first weekend, the festival stretches over two weekends, giving more fans the opportunity to see the same lineup, including Frank Ocean, from April 21-23.
In conclusion, the Coachella live stream provides an excellent opportunity for music lovers worldwide to enjoy their favorite artists’ performances without leaving the comfort of their homes.
