    Default Best Female vocalists on the lineup?

    My girlfriend is really into female singers. Who are some of the best on the lineup? I know Karen O, Emily Haines, Janelle Monae & Bat for Lashes. Any other suggestions?

    Lisa Gerrard - Dead Can Dance. She's on a different level than the others you mentioned.

    Is your girlfriend really into females in general? What I'm trying to say is does she like vagina as much as penis?

    Jessie Ware has the best vocals


    but Victoria Legrand, of Beach House, might have the most interesting voice...

    Probably not the "best" vocalist in the lineup, but definitely one of my must-see groups for the weekend. Polica singer is good, but the fact that they auto-tuned her voice on the whole album might disqualify her from this list. None-the-less, I'll be seeing them as well.





    Karen O would have to be on the list as well. She is amazing live.

    Convinced Savages will be not only the best female performance of the weekend, but one of the best performances in Coachella history.
