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:
