If you're looking for a good way to watch Coachella this weekend, I recommend this page.
There's lots of acts at Coachella I want to listen to this year that are all playing on different channels. Since I'm way too lazy to remember to switch between them, I hacked this together so that I could just select all the acts I care about, and it will switch between them for me so I can just leave it on in the background. Right now it's only setup for weekend 1, but I'll update it before next weekend so that you can use the same URL to listen then also.

"This policy was established after consultation with drone experts, user groups, municipal authorities and aviation safety experts," read a SXSW statement. "While SXSW may make exceptions to this policy if the drones are used within certain trade show areas where safety measures such as tethering to the ground are implemented, the airwaves and/or frequency spectrums generally used in the remote control of drones are too congested during the SXSW event to ensure operation safe from interference."
