2. COACHELLA: 20 YEARS IN THE DESERT
2020 is still technically getting a Coachella festival, but it has been rescheduled for October. But that won’t stop Coachella’s spirit, so on the opening date of the festival, a movie will be available on the date the festival was supposed to take place. Billboard shares the following about the film:
“Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert opens with voiceover from Billie Eilish saying, “Everybody knows what Coachella is,” over footage of her headlining set last year. The three-and-a-half-minute teaser then shuffles between bits of Jimmy Kimmel, Family Guy and Pres. Obama dropping mentions of the fest before a quick montage of performances from Travis Scott, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Radiohead and Beyoncé crushing it.
The YouTube Originals doc will be available to stream on April 10.
