If you can't make this year's Coachella music festival in Indio, California but have the money for tickets, you can still watch the show: in virtual reality. And if you are going, VR could enhance the experience.

Once you purchase a ticket, you'll receive a unique VR headset (pictured here) that can be used in combination with a Coachella VR app (which can be found in the iOS, Android, and Samsung Gear VR stores), which you can then use to take in photos from previous events, virtual tours, interviews, and of course, performances, among other things. A 5mbps or higher Wi-Fi connection is recommended.

Unfortunately, no reduced cost VR ticket only option is available.

The Coachella 2016 lineup includes LCD Soundsystem, Sufjan Stevens, The Kills, Guns N' Roses, Ice Cube, A$AP Rocky, Run the Jewels, Bat for Lashes, and a mountain more.
