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?
