Coachella joined the seemingly endless list of music festival cancellations due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With some health experts saying that concerts could return in “Fall 2021 at the earliest”, the prospects of waiting that long to see live music can be a bit depressing. Luckily, artists and venues have banded together for livestreams from home and there are plenty of music documentaries to help with the current isolation.

Today, the Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert documentary is now available to watch for free via YouTube Originals. The film follows the cultural phenomenon of Coachella, starting from the humble beginnings as an electronic-focused event to today, where it sits atop the throne as the most widely recognized music festival in the world.

Some highlights include detailing the trial and error process of creating Kanye West‘s Sunday Service from last year’s festival, convincing Prince to headline Coachella 2008 and the story of Dr. Dre‘s headlining set featuring the iconic 2Pac hologram. The documentary even takes a deep dive into the architecture and sound system set-ups that have transformed over the years, each helping to build more complex and memorable headlining performances.

Watch the full documentary above and stream Billie Eilish‘s 2019 performance from the film below. In more music updates, Drake recently told Diddy that he’s sitting on more music than ever before after recording throughout the quarantine.
