Electronic Music is Well Represented at Coachella

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, one of the world’s biggest music events, has announced it’s official lineup and it certainly features a solid number of dance and electronic music artists.

Big wigs such as Orbital, Tiesto, Deadmau5, David Guetta, Plastikman (aka Richie Hawtin), Benny Benassi, LCD Soundsystem are represented along with more underground artists like Dirty South, Sia, Major Lazer, Kaskade, and The Glitch Mob.

Of course, when you mix in a whole heaping of other genres and world class acts like Jay-Z, Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, Sly and the Family Stone, Public Image Limited, The Specials, etc, etc, you’re looking at an amazing three days and $269 well spent (minus travel and accomodations).
