Childish Gambino to Premiere ‘Guava Island’ at Coachella

10th April 2019 | Category: Concerts

Those who will not be able to attend Coachella this year will be thrilled to hear that YouTube plans to live-stream the music festival for its ninth consecutive year. Those who are planning to go to the event, however, can purchase the Coachella tickets right here.

Three separate live channels will broadcast performances of Ariana Grande, Black Pink, Childish Gambino and many others. The first stream will start on April 12th at 4 p.m. PT until April 14th, and for the first time, YouTube will cover the second weekend, from April 19th to April 21st.

Apart from performing, Donald Glover, better known as Childish Gambino will premiere his new film “Guava Island”. Most of the information is unknown about the film itself, but here is some information that can possibly shed a light on what the audience can expect.

The trailer for the “Guava Island” was shown on November 24th 2018 at Childish Gambino’s PHAROS Festival in New Zealand. It was filmed in Cuba and features Donald Glover playing his guitar and pondering his surroundings, saying: “We live in paradise, but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here.”

We will also see Rihanna in the film, as she plays Glover’s love interest.

Other actors who are related to this project are Black Panther’s Letitia Wright and Game of Thrones’ Nonso Anozie. The film is directed by Hiro Murai who already worked with Glover on his FX show “Atlanta” and his music videos “This is America” and “Sober”.

YouTube will stream “Guava Island” live on Saturday night, on April 13th at Coachella.

The premiere date is one day after Gambino is scheduled to perform. According to a press release, this will be a one-time premiere and it is not known whether the film will be available via the Coachella YouTube after the live stream.
