Despite this year’s festival being postponed to October, YouTube Originals is bringing 20 years of Coachella history directly to our homes.

Although the coronavirus pandemic has decimated the spring festival season, that hasn’t stopped Coachella from trying to lift our spirits. Teased earlier this year, Goldenvoice teamed up with YouTube Originals to produce Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert, an all-new, full-length documentary exploring the history of the festival.

Set to air officially on Friday, April 10, the original date scheduled for the first day of this year’s festival, #Couchella will be in full effect instead. The documentary will span the last 20 years of iconic Coachella performances, interviews, and even give viewers an exclusive behind the scenes look at how the festival is put on annually.

This film offers a rare glimpse into one of the largest and most successful music festivals on the planet. Some of the most iconic moments in music history have unfolded at Coachella, many of which helped define the festival, and now, you can relive those moments directly from your home.

Goldenvoice has continuously excelled at highlighting some of the most promising names in music at the early stages of their careers. Now through Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert, fans will be able to look back on a handful of sets that defined the careers of their favorite artists. 

Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert will highlight sets from Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia, Moby, and Billie Eilish among others. Fans can also expect to experience the magic that was Madonna, Radiohead, Björk, The White Stripes, Travis Scott, and others that have graced the stage. 

YouTube has also announced that it will be returning for its tenth consecutive year as Coachella’s official live streaming platform when the festival returns this fall. Check out the sneak peek and stay tuned for the full release on April 10 at 12pm PDT!

It was a decade ago that Logan Garrison, better known as DJ Lo_G, first took the stage to spin sets for crowds in the snowy towns of Lake Tahoe and Aspen. Originally spinning sounds in the realm of glitch and bass music, he began to develop a passion for all things house as he returned to his hometown and hasn’t looked back since. Over the years, DJ Lo_G has become a fixture in the Aspen nightlife scene as he has found a home at Belly Up and regularly warms up the stage for some of dance music’s biggest artists like The Chainsmokers, Chris Lake, Slow Magic, Nora En Pure, and most recently ZHU. Joining the EDM Identity team back in 2018, he’s dug even deeper into dance music and the festival scene. Whether he’s covering events like Mysteryland and shows in Aspen, interviewing artists like Hannah Wants, and reviewing fresh releases, his passion for the entire community shines throughout.
