5 Artists You Can't Miss At Coachella


Coachella's huge lineup can be awfully overwhelming. And since it is jam packed with excellent live acts, it can be nearly impossible to decide who to see! If you are headed to the desert this weekend, regardless of what else you do, here are 5 artists that you better not miss.

TNGHT - Friday - 8:35 - 9:20, Gobi Tent

'Nuff said.

Dub Fx - Sunday - 10:25 - DoLab

This Australian loop-pedal master has been honing his skills on street corners around the world and is finally hitting the US with his purely vocally-created tracks.



C2C - Friday - 1:30 - 2:20, Sahara Tent

After conquering the French DJ scene and winning multiple DMC World Championships, these four disc jockeys are finally ready to conquer the States behind their infectious debut album, Tetra. They kick off their efforts at Coachella and a few select dates elsewhere.



Rodriguez - Sunday - 6:35 - 7:15, Gobi Tent

The subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugar Man, Rodriguez became an underground sensation in South Africa while he remained unknown and oblivious to his fame in the US. For the first time in 40 years, the Bob Dylan-esque revolutionary songwriter is traveling the states and making a sure-to-be-amazing stop in the Desert.



Vintage Trouble - Saturday - 12:15 - 12:55, Coachella Stage

While your chances of seeing James Brown live are shot, Vintage Trouble are the closest thing out there these days. The group's livey retro grooves have been lighting up stages all across the nation and prove that live music can have enough energy to rival the Sahara tent's dancey bleeps and bloops.
