Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is taking place over the weekends of April 11-13 and April 18-20. Needless to say, it’s one of the hottest tickets of the year: even though general admission weekend passes cost $375, they sold out almost immediately back in January. The fifteen-year old festival is expected to draw around 90,000 attendees each weekend at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The festival atmosphere along with a dose of Hollywood glamor and of course some incredible headlining musical acts are all huge draws for this event.
With dozens of acts performing on the festival’s stages each day and both up-and-coming musicians as well as more experienced names sharing the festival grounds, it’s difficult to narrow down the must-see shows of this year. Of course, there are a few acts that have definitely been getting a lot of buzz and are without a doubt must-sees for anyone at the festival. (And if you aren’t going to be there, don’t feel completely left out: some of these shows are streaming on the official Coachella YouTube channel.) Here are a few of the names that are getting the most attention at this year’s festival:
9 Ellie Goulding
8 Pharrell Williams
7 Queens of the Stone Age
6 Lana Del Rey
3 Arcade Fire
1 Honorable mentions
There are many other buzz-worthy acts at this year’s Coachella that deserve mention. Here are just a couple more that we wanted to include:
One of the biggest rock acts of 2013 and veterans of Coachella, these three sisters form a rock band with pop and hip-hop influences. Their concerts have been a big hit with crowds.
A cult punk band from the 1980s, their Coachella show will be a big draw for fans; not to mention it will be like a reunion show, since they have no other concerts scheduled at the moment.
Neutral Milk Hotel
This cult ‘90s indie rock band has remained under the radar. Although they are not a commercial success, they have actually influenced other, more mainstream groups at the festival including Arcade Fire, and are reuniting for this year’s festival.
Known for producing some big hits in the 1970s and 80s as both a solo singer and a member of the band “Roxy Music,” Ferry will surely break out some of his biggest hits for devotees at Coachella.
