Coachella Weekend 2 begins (set times, livestream, Kanye’s Sunday Service & more)
Coachella Weekend Two begins today (4/19) at noon Pacific time. If you’re there, check out the set times at the bottom of this post. If you’re not there, you’re in luck, because weekend two will stream live for the first time ever this year. Kanye West‘s “Sunday Service” is expected to stream live at 9 AM Pacific (noon Eastern) on Sunday, and right now there are 14 confirmed performances for the livestream, including headliners Ariana Grande and Tame Impala. See the full list and watch the stream HERE.
Unfortunately, Christine and the Queens had to cancel their Weekend Two set following the death of main member Héloïse Adelaide Letissier’s mother. Like Weekend One, Solange also cancelled.
The set times look to be about the same as weekend one, and as a reminder, here are some of the tough conflicts: On Friday, you’ll have to choose between The 1975 and U.S. Girls. On Saturday, you probably don’t want to miss Tame Impala’s headlining set (especially with two new songs out), but unfortunately seeing Tame Impala means missing Little Simz, who put out the best rap album of 2019 so far. The rare Aphex Twin (who just played his first NYC show since the ’90s) set on Saturday is unfortunately up against breakout alt-pop singer Billie Eilish. And fans of chilled out indie rock need to choose between Mac DeMarco and Turnover on Saturday. On Sunday, Kaytranada fans will have to miss Ariana Grande’s headlining set, and Sunday attendees also have to choose between Bad Bunny, Soccer Mommy, Lizzo, AND Playboi Carti.
Weekend One tends to be heavier on special guest appearances, but — especially with Weekend Two now streaming — will there be big surprises in store this weekend too? Will *NSYNC join Ariana Grande again? Will Cardi B show up again? Will Kanye make an appearance during the actual fest? Will the crowd wait for Kacey Musgraves to say fuckin’ yee?
