Going to Coachella? Here's a Playlist of the Lesser-Known Artists You Must Hear

Posted on

We have no doubt that Foster the People, Empire of the Sun, Arcade Fire and plenty of other acts will have an area jam-packed with fans at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but a big part of the fun is discovering new music.

And that’s why PEOPLE is providing readers with a cheat sheet (playlist) of some of the more under-the-radar acts, ranging from nu-disco duo Classixx to Swedish electro-pop group Little Dragon, so that in-between hitting the hottest Coachella bashes – We’re lookin’ at you, Neon Carnival, Details @ Midnight, Guess Hotel lounge, Lacoste pool party – there is plenty of music to discover over the course of double-weekend festival, which kicks off on Friday.

And while we were at it, we even put together a list last week of brand new songs you can listen to en route to the Indio, Calif., playground, because who says you can have too much of a good thing?

Which acts are you most excited to see at Coachella? Let us know in the comments below. But in the meantime, check out our playlist on Spotify – which happens to be the festival’s official digital music partner – featuring more than 30 songs, below:
