As almost every single music festival has been canceled this year in the wake of the COVID-19 virus, the same happening to Coachella 2020, it is speculated by health experts we won’t see concerts happening any time soon, “Fall 2021 at the earliest”, which is quite a long time from now. It’s good that there are a lot of artists and venues who have banded together for live streams from home, as well as plenty of music documentaries to watch.
Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert is a new documentary available to watch for free via YouTube Originals. The film follows the cultural phenomenon of Coachella, starting all from the beginnings of the festival as an electronic-focused event to today. The highlights from the documentary include Kanye West’s Sunday Service making process, Dr. Dre’s story about headlining the festival featuring the iconic 2Pac hologram, and Billie Eilish’s 2019 performance, among many other memorable shows. The movie also covers the architecture and sound system set-ups that have transformed over the years.
