5 Artists You Must See At Coachella 2012


After months of speculation and prayers to the music Gods, the full lineup for Coachella 2012 was revealed earlier today. The star-studded lineup includes The Black Keys, The Shins, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and many other heavy hitters. Do we care about Dre and Snoop? Not really.

We are interested in whether or not our prayers to the HOUSE music Gods got thru. The answer…Abso-fucking-lutely!

Kaskade? Yes!
Swedish House Mafia? Done deal.
Afrojack!? You better believe it.
Avicii!? Kill me now.
David Guetta!? Guetta the fuck out of town!!!

Yes, they are all here at Coachella 2012 in April of this year, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. While these house music magicians will certainly be putting on amazing shows, here’s our list of 5 more artists that you do NOT want to miss.

  • I shot media for Avicii last weekend at Reno. He is so epic live! I can’t wait for Coachella and I’m really looking forward to Alesso as well. Thanks for the list!

  • Honestly, this is a terrible list. Some of these would be fun acts to see but “must see”? I don’t think so. Where is Madeon, Nero (Live), Modeselektor, Sub Focus, Zeds Dead, and SHM? All of those would qualify as must-see since they are either extremely talented, rare to see live, put on a massive performance, or a combination of all three.

  • Of course all of those acts will be great, but missing an act from Dada Life or Alesso would be a shame. This is not a list of artist’s you should ONLY see, but rather a list of artists that maybe could have gotten lost in the mix :)
