Coachella: Watch on Internet

How to Watch Coachella 2007 on Your Computer


. Your vote has been counted.
Difficulty: Easy
Coachella is one of those few things that you have to experience live at least once in your life. There is simply no substitute for being there live in person.

However, for every one lucky person that attends the Coachella Festival in 2007, there are probably 10 less fortunate persons who wish they could be there, but can't.

But wait! There is some hope for these poor souls! They may not be able to get the full, beautiful experience of Coachella's blazing heat, expensive food, and long waits in line for a overflowing porto-potty... but they can get an idea of what's happening out there in Indio by simply logging on to the internet and watching online!

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Internet access (preferably hi-speed)

Instructions

  • STEP 1: LOG ON TO AT&T BLUE ROOM. http://blueroom.att.com/events/coachella.php
    This site has been around for the past few years, offering free live streaming video of live music events, including performances at some of the best music festivals in America... Coachella, Vegoose, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, etc.

    Note: You don't get to see ALL of the Coachella acts, only a selected few acts... but hey, better than nuthin', right?

    Also, be sure to check out some of the archived performances currently available from other festivals like Vegoose, there's some good stuff there!
  • STEP 2: MONITOR YOUTUBE. Last year, Coachella exploded all over YouTube.com like never before. Some people weren't even waiting until the next day to upload video clips taken with cameras and cell phones (and the occasional smuggled-in video camera). Of course, these video clips are mostly incomplete, short snippets varying in quality (with most of them being pretty LOUSY quality) but with each passing year, you can be sure that there will be more and more videos uploaded almost immediately, giving the poor kids at home a taste of what they're missing out on.

    Do a search for "Coachella 2007" on Saturday and there will already be at least a couple clips from Friday night already up for your viewing pleasure.
