Tuesday Ten: Coachella Essentials Mix

At the end of this week, I will be putting on my finest hipster attire and heading out to the desert for three fun-filled days of music, dancing and other shenanigans in honor of Coachella.

If you haven’t heard of it before, Coachella is a three-day music and arts festival that takes place just outside of Palm Springs. Everyone from The Black Keys and Miike Snow to Florence + the Machine, Avicci and Girl Talk will be performing. And I cannot wait! I haven’t been to Coachella yet but I’ve heard nothing but good things so I am really excited to finally go. A bunch of my friends have been faithful Coachellers for years so I feel fortunate to be going with a group of seasoned attendees.

While packing is definitely one of my #1 priorities, putting together a killer Coachella playlist is just as important if you ask my friend Jilly. And she’s got a point. It’s a music festival! Thankfully, Jilly has us covered with a great Coachella playlist. Whether you’re heading to Coachella or not, this playlist is the perfect upbeat mix to take your through spring and summer…

But first, a little note from Jilly:

My favorite time of the year is quickly approaching. It doesn’t involve cakes and white dresses; only flowers, love, and music. Also known as Coachella. I put together a list of 10 artists I’m most excited to see. I hope you enjoy!

1. Kaskade – Move for Me

2. The Horrors – Still Life

3. Grouplove – Tongue Tied

4. Madeon – Icarus

5. M83 – Reunion

6. Martin Solveig – The Night Out

7. SBTRKT – Wildfire

8. Calvin Harris – Feel So Close

9. We Are Augustines – Chapel Song

10. The Shins – Simple Song

Which song is your favorite?

Also, let me know if you’re going to Coachella this year too–or, if you have any other music festivals on your calendar too!
