Watch Black Coffee's Coachella 2018 Set Live Here

Watch Black Coffee's Coachella live performance right here on OkayAfrica.

Update 4/20: Black Coffee's Coachella weekend 2 set is scheduled for Friday, April 20 at 7:20-8:10 p.m. PST on the Mojave stage.

Music festival season is officially here, and we're buzzing with excitement about the artists repping Africa and the diaspora this year.

The first of our artists to watch at Coachella this year is Black Coffee, who is set to perform on Friday evening (April 13).

If you can't make it to California this year, don't let the FOMO kick in just yet—Coachella will be streaming his entire set live on its YouTube channel at 10.55PM EST.


This is will be Black Coffee's second time performing at Coachella, as he previously brought his beats to the music festival in 2016. The South African DJ and producer has been busy since, even working on Drake's More Life album last year, and surely gaining more fans in the process.

Coachella will be streaming most of the artists performing during its first weekend, including Beyoncé, Wizkid, The Weeknd and more. The second weekend of the festival (April 20-22) will not be streamed live.

You can see the entire weekend's streaming schedule right here.
