Virtual Weekend Outlook – Rave with Dillon Francis and Diplo

Camille Desanto | Staff Photographer
Nobody will be raving at Coachella this year, but check out the documentary “Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert” for a glimpse of the famous festival.

It might feel like Groundhog’s Day over and over again, but there are a few ways to change up your weekend while staying at home. Spend Friday at a virtual Coachella, Saturday at a rave and Sunday relaxing with some Easter crafts.


Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert

This year’s Coachella festival has been postponed until the fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate. YouTube is releasing “Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert,” a documentary that explores Coachella’s history of iconic performances. Tune in to watch highlights from former Coachella guests like Childish Gambino, Drake and Post Malone. The film will be released on Friday, the original start date for this year’s festival.

Rave with Diplo

For the past two weeks, DJ Dillon Francis has been on a virtual tour, live streaming rave sessions on his YouTube channel. This Saturday, Francis will perform with Diplo during their online performance called “Coronight Fever.” Join the virtual rave from the comfort of your room by tuning in at 8 p.m. PT and 11 p.m. EST. You can also check Francis’ Instagram account for weekly performance schedules.

Online at 11 p.m. EST.


Easter Crafts

Easter might just feel like another day this year, but you can still recognize the holiday with crafts at home. Order an egg dying kit for less than $10 from Amazon and spend the day dying eggs with your family. Or if you’re feeling like a kid again, set up an egg hunt in your yard or around your home and hide each family member’s favorite candy in the eggs.
