Exclusive: Kate Bosworth’s Ultimate Coachella Playlist

Sure, we’re counting down the days (three more to go!) until we get to see what the constellation of style stars will don at Coachella this weekend, but aren’t you the least bit curious about which bands they’ll be roving in and out of the VIP ropes to see? Us, too. That's why we tapped the most fashionable festival big shot we know, Kate Bosworth, to spill on what ditties she’s been grooving to in preparation for her desert adventure. As it turns out, the style magnate’s melodies stand out from the crowd just like her top-of-the-line taste in showstopping garb.
From It Brit band Metronomy to that Mazzy Star song from Fear, this amazing audio compilation will have you nodding your head in no time. We even got a sneak peek of a brand-new, ethereal video she shot for the fest, lip-syncing to Duran Duran’s "Save A Prayer" (stars they’re just like us!), and rocking boho-inspired baubles from JewelMint's April collection. Hit play right here, and then click through for her playlist.
As far as we’re concerned, it’s so not gauche to rock out to these tunes in your car just before you catch them live — so go on and blare these bad boys as you bear traffic on the 10 en route to Indio. We've assembled the entire playlist for your listening pleasure on Spotify, so see what Kate has to say below, and then have a listen. Or hit play right here!
