The weekends of April 10 – 12 and 17 – 19 were set to be Coachella milestones; they marked the festival’s 20th edition, driving home its position as America’s most celebrated spring event. Hundreds of thousands from the states and all around the world were slated to fill Indio’s Empire Polo Field for the annual bacchanale; that is, before the COVID-19 pandemic forced nationwide lockdowns and led to Coachella’s postponement.
While the event has since been rescheduled to October, the internet offers a bit of a respite in the meantime for those reeling in the absence of their April escape. We’ve rounded up Coachella 2020’s biggest dance, hip-hop, and pop stacked into a massive playlist for at-home listening. The playlist features the likes of Zeds Dead, Tchami, Lil Uzi Vert, GRiZ, Lil Nas X, and Madeon—to name a few, encapsulating nearly 10 hours worth of all the sounds you would have heard this weekend, if we could all be together.
Social distancing might be key during these odd times, but at least we have droves of music to get us through. Happy streaming.
