Grimes, Beach House, The 1975 play Coachella 2016

Watch all the action live on the first of two weekends.

Festival season’s big-leaguers officially kickstart 2016 this weekend, when the first of two Coachella events takes place.

Stealing all the headlines is LCD Soundsystem, making their live comeback at the Indio, California fest. They’ve a couple of warm-up shows under their belt, but this their first chance to return with fireworks ’n all.

Fellow headliners Guns n’ Roses also have something to prove; the former that they’re not crocked, the latter that he possesses enough bangers to top a bill.

Friday 15th also has performances from Sufjan Stevens, M83, The Kills, HEALTH, Sheer Mag, while Foals and Haelos represent the UK.

The following night, sets arrive from CHVRCHES, Halsey, Courtney Barnett, Alvvays, SOPHIE, Run the Jewels, Grimes, Disclosure and A$AP Rocky.

Sunday’s closing night sees The 1975, Flume and Sia step up to the main stages. They’re joined by a will-they-show-up Death Grips set, plus Wolf Alice, Alessia Cara, Young Fathers, Hudson Mohawke and Anderson .Paak.

Via the magic of the Internet, from 11.40pm GMT you’ll be able to watch the action unfold here. Some videos will showcase exciting action happening at the time, other bits will be highlights.
