Getting in on the action, we’re already streaming our favorites from the forthcoming festival here at RZ HQ. Click through now to see the 10 music acts we can’t wait to see, then start daydreaming about your desert wardrobe!
1. Lykke Li
From her 2008 breakout single "Little Bit" to last year's ballad-filled album I Never Learn, Lykke Li's discography is well listened to by Team Zoe. All things considered, we'll be sure to push our way to the front to see the Swedish indie pop singer work her magic in person.
Must-know track: Gunshot
2. The Weeknd
A moniker for 24-year-old Abel Tesfaye, The Weeknd helped pave the way for PBR&B, aka, hipster R&B with his debut mixtape House of Balloons (2011) — and for that we are forever fans.
Must-know track: Earned It
3. Florence + The Machine
Cherished on the fashion scene, Florence Welch and her band have provided the soundtrack to many a runway show — including a live set for Chanel's S/S 2012 season! Now, her powerhouse voice is positioned to electrify the polo field.
Must-know track: Addicted To Love
Fun fact: Interpol is one of Rodger Berman's favorite bands. Will the NYC rock group's presence at the festival beckon our company's President to the desert this year? We shall see!
Must-know track: Everything Is Wrong
5. Jenny Lewis
We've adored Jenny Lewis since her Troop Beverly Hills days. Most recently, the actress-slash-former Rilo Kiley singer has charmed us with a solo album, The Voyager, which we've streamed on repeat.
Must-know track: Head Underwater
6. Angus & Julia Stone
A brother-sister folk duo from Australia. What's not to love?
Must-know track: Big Jet Plane
7. Father John Misty
An alias for ex-Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman, singer-songwriter Father John Misty has cornered the market on satirical serenades, and we can't get enough.
Must-know track: Chateau Lobby #4
8. Marina and the Diamonds
Hailing from the UK, 29-year-old songstress Marina Diamandis may be a modern-day Madonna on account of her upbeat, catchy tracks and bold sense of style.
Must-know track: Happy
9. FKA Twigs
Inspired by Billie Holiday, FKA Twigs (an alter-ego for English singer-songwriter Tahliah Debrett Barnett) first caught our ear on Bandcamp with her self-released EP1 in 2012. Defined by whispery vocals and an avant-pop sound, she is definitely one to bookmark on your Coachella agenda.
Must-know track: Pendulum
Likely to bring out plenty of special guests — fingers-crossed for Rihanna — we seriously are stoked to see Drizzy close out the festival on Sunday.
Must-know track: Tuscan Leather
