Cannot push this band enough. Amazing, especially considering their ages.
All Coachella virgins will be tasered.
Nearly all of the dance music artists worth seeing are on the bottom three lines. Examples:
Hot Since 82
Cajmere aka Green Velvet
Poolside. So fuckin good. Very stoked for them on Sun.
austra - great. dark, synthy pop. think purity ring with more fuzz.
††† - also kinda dark synthy pop. lyrically right in line with chino moreno's deftones stuff. he's on vocals, shaun lopez of far guitars, chuck doom is a crazily talented bassist, and dino of dredg is something of a drummer hero for me... way looking forward to this set.
wye oak - two piece that sound like more and make pretty, spacy, kinda folky sounds. excellent musicians and stuff.
caravan palace - big band-ish swing with samplers, synths, and turntables. swing house? iunno. crazy, crazy fun. they're gonna pack a tent, i reckon.
the plan! - the dismemberment plan play awesome, energetic, lyrically intriguing post-punk stuff that makes me mega happy.
bombay bicycle club - never got super into them, but i've genuinely enjoyed all of the stuff i've heard. heavily electronically tinged dance-y guitar stuff from britain. kinda foals-y, i guess, maybe?
rl grime - dark, dirty trap hop stuff. fun for brain waves.
surfer blood - been waiting for this band to get a coachella booking since they released their first lp. it has just a perfect coachella sound. reverb heavy, fun rock stuff. way excited for them.
j. roddy walston and the business are gonna tear it up and you should be there for it.
it makes me forget to relax. with a heart full of holes, and a head full of dreams. with a mouthful of honey, and a fistful of bees.
Austra > Jagwar Ma > A$AP Ferg > Flume > The Glitch Mob > Bonobo > Haim > Broken Bells > Outkast

Some of the artists on the bottom three lines are really big in New Zealand. Netsky is huge in NZ and I've seen him live a few times - definitely not to miss if your into drum and bass:
Also AlunaGeorge is another big artist in New Zealand - again great live, saw them opening for Disclosure last year and was blown away by Alunas stage presence (Aluna sings on White Noise by Disclosure).
Would also recommend Flight Facilities and Anna Lunoe
