Well its that time of the year again where I hate my friends for living in California and hate myself for living in Florida. Coachella is back and this year is insane! Aside from the big names like Chili Peppers and Modest Mouse and Bassnectar and Pretty Lights, there are some smaller guys you should be checking out and seeing if you are going.
Gotta get that D. Francis up that Cochella shit. He’s been making all new tracks in 2013.
Dog Blood aka SKRILLEX & Boys Noize’s band!! Really unique track
Kids These Days of Chicago, fantastic young Hip-Hop group
Local Natives of L.A., sweet indie rock crew
Purity Ring, and amazing duo that put on a great show
Alt-J straight out of Britain ya’ll!
Savages also from London, all-female bad ass punk-rock mothafuckas
There are so many more but I’ll stop there. This lineup is so loaded, some bands are unknown to me and I’m sure they are fantastic as well. Some more honorable mentions include: Danny Brown, Two Chainz, Wolfgang Gartner, EARL, Pusha-T, Major Lazer, Mimosa, fucking Wu-Tang Clan, Vampire Weekend, the xx, Grizzly Bear, Knife Party, Two Door Cinema, Of Monsters and Men, Divine Fits, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and so many others. For those of you who can make it, have fun and I envy you! to those who can’t, well you are stuck like me listening to soundcloud and dreaming.
Here is a link to the website to see the lineup a little bigger
