The first weekend of the 2017 installment of the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California on April 14 – April 16. Organizers have once again confirmed a free webcast of many of the acts taking the stage during the three-day event.

Pitchfork reports 51 acts will be webcast between Friday, April 14 and Sunday, April 16. Headliners Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga are reportedly part of the free livestream. Additional webcast participants are said to include Bon Iver, Father John Misty, The xx, Lorde, New Order, Future and Schoolboy Q. Variety notes the webcasts will be presented via three channels, with some performances offering a live 360-degree mode.
