Coachella 2011: Planning Your Schedule Is Half The Fun

<p>Coachella is tomorrow. Start your engines.</p>

Tomorrow is Friday, everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, and after months of planning Coachella is finally upon us. It’s like Christmas but better—the weather is a whole lot hotter, after all.

Over the next three days, we’ll be releasing exclusive interviews and trailers for the artist collaborations and installations we have in store for Coachella. Just this morning, we premiered a preview of UVA’s redesign of the Main Stage, and we’ve already teased you about installations from J. Spaceman and Jonathan Glazer and Muti Randolph.

But we can’t forget about the music. With well over 150 artists and only three days to hear them, you’re going to have to be selective. Planning ahead is the best way to make sure you make the most of your festival experience.

The set times have finally been released, but with so many great acts to choose from, it won’t be easy. Use the Coachooser to help customize your own schedule. Can’t make it to Coachella this year? We just found out that YouTube will be streaming the entire festival as it happens, so you can keep up at home. Make sure to catch sets from our very own Creators, either in person or online, highlighted below.
