    Default Diamond-in-the-rough first timers

    Finding these acts is what GV does best, imo. So, who is out there with but one album that is desert-ready?

    I'll throw out the Twerps

    It's always hard to predict who will be big by the time Coachella rolls around next year but if I had to guess...

    Charli XCX



    Dry The River (already getting popular)



    Action Bronson (I'd be surprised if he didn't play next year)



    Animal Kingdom



    Father John Misty

    wow thank you for posting those tracks! I get busy and sometimes I have to dedicate nights to finding new music. You just gave me a good nights worth of music without having to weed through the bad music. Danke!

    Would definitely be pleased with either of these on 2013's lineup...

    Sleep Party People (ok, so not really new)


    Man Without Country

    Both of these are slated for Festivals this year but wouldn't be surprised if they showed up on the lineup.

    Alabama Shakes


    Polica

    Thank you, I don't know why it wasn't working earlier. This dude will definitely be huge.

    Caveman

    Debut album - CoCo Beware. Their sound is great live and would love to hear at Coachella.

    I think Willis Earl Beal & Unknown Mortal Orchestra are both very likely. They've been getting a ton of coverage and praise, and have new albums out.

    Also: Abadabad would make a great 2pm Gobi act.

    Quality tunes~

    Glad you like it. I think he would fit well at Coachella and is getting some buzz.
