The Weeknd will kick off the first weekend of the music festival, with Beyonce, Eminem and Cardi B also set to take the stage.

With music fans hitting the desert this weekend for the popular music and arts festival Coachella, YouTube will once again give its users the opportunity to join in on the fun from the comfort of their own homes by live-streaming the event’s musical performances for the eighth year in a row.

The music spectacle, which runs from April 13-15 and April 20-22 in Indio, California, will take place over a span of two weekends, with an array of music’s biggest stars set to take the stage. The first night of each weekend will be headlined by The Weeknd, who'll follow SZA, Kygo, St. Vincent, Vince Staples, Daniel Caesar and more. This year marks the first time Beyonce will headline the desert concert, making her debut on Saturday night. Eminem is Sunday's headliner. Other artists including Haim, Fleet Foxes, Cardi B, Miguel, French Montana and Odesza round out this year’s lineup.

Viewers will be able to visit Coachella’s YouTube channel for exclusive access to the show. They can choose between four live-stream feeds that will broadcast different artists simultaneously. Live streams can be viewed on desktop, mobile and television platforms.

The live stream of Coachella's first weekend will begin on Friday, April 13.
