    I love all kinds of music and these are my suggestions.

    FRIDAY
    Girl Talk- hip hop/Breaks mash up (great fun show)
    Peanut Butter Wolf - hip hop dance
    SATURDAY
    Chemical Brothers - Electro (No description necessary other than amazing)
    Surkin & Para One - Funky House/Electro French Style
    SUNDAY
    Groove Armada - Electro/Dance/Breaks/Dancehall - So good
    Roni Size - Drum and Bass/Breaks (amazing show 3 yrs ago.) worth it.
    Etienne De Crecy- Electro/Trance (Crazy stage show with the Cube)

    In addition to the DJ's above, I would very highly recommend checking out THE DO LAB. They have an oasis area in the middle of Coachella for the last four years with a crazy stage, performers and DJ's like you have never seen before. And they have the coolest and most interesting crowd by far. THOSE GUYS THROW DOWN. A+++++
    I believe that their dj lineup will actually be posted in the Coachella program this year.
    Some greats from years past that I believe will be there again this year.
    The Glitch Mob -Glitch hop (Never seen anything like it) Bad ass.
    El Papachango - Latin Breaks/Hip hop Salsa (unique) My favorite DJ.
    The Ianator - Chicago style house ( Super fun)
    DJ Braden - Breaks/House/Dubstep (amazing DJ)
    Patricio- Also a great DJ that plays Breaks and Funky house.

    Enjoy.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Thank you for he laugh, that was one of the better jokes i've heard since i've been on the boards. Best all around DJ at the fest is Craze without a doubt, and the best DJ to catch a set that will make you go ape shit is probably The Bloody Beetroots and if you are looking to just dance groove armada will bring it. I like almost every DJ on the line up accept Christopher Lawrence and a couple other, but I hate trance so that could be why. A lot of good DJs on this years line up in my opinion.

    Omfg DJ Patricio in the Do Lab last year. He played at night on Sunday right? I wandered in there tripping balls to a huge ass dance party. I think he was playing, it was so amazing.

It's important to recognize the difference between a Dj, and a Turntablist. A Dj mixes records, and plays prerecorded remixes (generally speaking). Craze and Klever will be manipulating the records in a way Tiesto never could.

    Are you retarded? Of course your not saying live act, HE DOESNT PLAY LIVE. He can play a smooth trance set, but doesnt do anything special and will not do anything djing other than a smooth fast mix.

    LFMAO... great joke buddy. hahahahahahahahah

    If you're not joking, let me explain why you are so wrong.

    First of all you don't even know how to spell his name.

    Second of all, Trance is so dead; this fact alone is enough to kill your argument that he is the best DJ on the poster.

    You could have probably said this about CL about 5 years ago.

    ^But the DMC's aren't a good representation of Craze's current style, because those were from almost a decade ago... Craze started with hip-hop, but could scratch so fast, he moved to drum n bass. His live sets are a combo of both.
    I recently saw Craze and Klever when they came through Denver, it was awesome. A lotta dubstep, hip hop and hard house.
    Not to mention the fact that Klever drank a half a liter of Grey goose, and finished the rest by pouring shots into random peoples mouths.

    i know what he spins now is completely different but still that shows what a true dj is able to to. I have seen craze every time he has come to LA since 2006 and have seen him spin everything from jungle to miami booty bass to dubstep to electro and he kills everything he touches. He brings everything to another level, do not miss his set.

    His set will be sick. But you can't really dance to any of it. It is more like a show watching him work.

    Here are my suggestions.

    FRIDAY
    Girl Talk- hip hop/Breaks mash up (great fun show)
    Peanut Butter Wolf - hip hop dance
    SATURDAY
    Chemical Brothers - Electro (No description necessary other than amazing)
    Surkin & Para One - Funky House/Electro French Style
    SUNDAY
    Groove Armada - Electro/Dance/Breaks/Dancehall - So good
    Roni Size - Drum and Bass/Breaks (amazing show 3 yrs ago.) worth it.
    Etienne De Crecy- Electro/Trance (Crazy stage show with the Cube)

    I think it all depends what type of music you enjoy because there are a lot of dj's on the lineup representing a variety of genres. You really can't go terribly wrong with any of them.

    The Bloody Beetroots will be a lot of fun and as far as dj's I have never seen live go they are my most anticipated dj set.

    DJ Craze & Klever are extremely talented dj's. Last time I caught Craze was in 2005 - 2 hour set consisting of 1 hour of oldschool and newer hip hop followed by an hour of jungle. fucking insane.
    Klever has won the US DMC Championship a couple times while Craze has won 3 titles. These guys will fucking BRING IT.

    Roni Size is AMAZING as a dj but for Coachella he is bringing along his crew, Reprazent which consists of several dnb dj's, musicians, vocalist, mc. I expect this to consist mainly and probably solely of Reprazent tunes played live rather than mixing anything with vinyl, cd's, etc.

    Others you may want to strongly consider catching: MSTRKRFT, Chemical Brothers, Etienne de Crecy.

    Ditto about the choices above and do-lab. Do-lab can be a great time, I get there 3-4 times a day. Dance wild with the freaks (by the way, "freak" used to be an endearing term referring to a trippy dude or lady, not sure you need the dated translation).
    The Dude: "He has emotional problems man."
    Walter: "You mean, beyond pacifism?"
