Maybe it's the sunny California setting, maybe it's a history of legendary performances, but Coachella will forever be known as the quintessential summer music festival. Arriving early in the season, Coachella sets the tone for what's to come for the rest of the year. As usual, 2014's edition promises buzzed-about reunions (The Replacements, Neutral Milk Hotel), mega-star headliners (Outkast, Arcade Fire), and internet-fueled up-and-comers (Chance the Rapper, Chvrches). Lately, Coachella has also upped its electronic music game, and EDM stars like Skrillex and Zedd will be taking over the massive dance tent.
Given the breadth of this year's fest, we thought you'd need a little preparation. So, we did you the courtesy of rounding up some of the best tracks from our favorite Coachella artists. Scroll down for our Spotify playlist to get a sampling of many must-see acts taking the stage in Indio this month.
