Coachella begins (stream it live here) +++ SZA & Cardi B collab? yodeling kid!

photo by Chef Bruce Kalman

Coachella 2018 officially begins today. For a sneak peek inside the grounds this year, that’s a pic above posted by one of the food vendors, Chef Bruce Kalman (who you may know from the most recent season of Top Chef). If you’re going, you’re probably already in Indio, or at least on your way, and if you’re staying home, you can stream the fest live right here in this post.

The biggest streaming news is that headliner Beyonce is streaming. So is St. Vincent (who’s debuting a new live show at the fest), Migos, Angel Olsen, The War On Drugs, The Weeknd, Brockhampton, Haim, Perfume Genius, Tyler the Creator, Vince Staples, Jamiroquai, Kamasi Washington, Alvvays, and more. All three streaming channels are embedded below, along with the streaming schedule. The stream begins at 6:35 PM Eastern. While you wait for Coachella 2018’s stream to start, watch a “Coachella Classics” video of St. Vincent playing “Krokodil” at Coachella 2012, below.

You can also listen to Coachella on SirirusXM, starting at 5:35 PM Eastern. More details HERE.

As always, Coachella means guest appearances, and a few are already being hinted at or semi-confirmed. According to TMZ, SZA (who plays day one) is strongly hinting that she’s gonna join Cardi B (who plays day three) on stage. SZA has covered “Bodak Yellow” and she appears on “I Do,” the excellent closing track of Cardi B’s new album.

The guest we really want to see, though, is of course Walmart Yodeling Kid. He posted on Instagram, “Can’t wait to see California again! Hope y’all are ready cause we’re bringing the country to @coachella.” TMZ says it’s likely that he’ll appear on stage during Post Malone‘s set. HOW EXCITING!!

As for other guest appearances, we don’t have much beyond speculation. It seems like there’s gotta be some guests during Migos‘ set. Last year, Future brought out Drake and Migos during his set. Will they do something similar? They do have a huge hit with Drake right now. They also play the same day as Cardi B, who Migos’ Offset is engaged to and who frequently collaborates with Migos and/or Offset solo. One of Migos’ biggest hits, “MotorSport,” is with both Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, who just dropped the first two singles off her upcoming fourth album yesterday. With all the hype in the air for Nicki right now, and nothing on her live schedule (not to mention her and Beyonce go to Coachella together in the “Feeling Myself” video), can we expect the Queen of Rap to make a Coachella appearance? Speaking of Beyonce, will we see her husband and tourmate Jay-Z? UPDATE: Jay-Z did make an appearance, as did Solange – read about it (and watch) HERE.

Catch up on our Coachella weekend one coverage so far: Friday (plus video from St. Vincent and Perfume Genius’s sets), and Saturday (plus video from Beyonce’s epic headlining set.
