...would you recommend to see?

Coachella always has some groups/artists I've never heard of and I'll google them to check out their sounds.

Recommend you catch some King Khan on YouTube or something before you give it a try live. Sounded really fun to me, until I saw it.

Nothing against these preferences... it just looked like a train wreck to me.

Everybody's made pretty good suggestions except for this.

Ra Ra Riot are incredibly boring live. And Matt & Kim might be fun for a few songs, I saw them open for a band last year, but they're so energetic and gleefully happy that it gets annoying after about 10 minutes.

Ohh Def! I'm doing that now actually. Just good to get a heads up on some acts on where to start. I found some pretty kool bands from festivals. But i wanna go all 3 days and have an idea of what bands I already wanna see but will def have time for some others I don't know about.

The odd thing about that is two of the bands are from Sweden.

What I've heard has been good stuff. Found it oddly difficult to find an album's worth of stuff online though.
