One of the perks of Coachella is the diverse music selection. The festival hosts the biggest names in hip-hop, alternative, electronic and rock, which is one of the reasons this festival is so special and popular.
Electronic music is a huge part of Coachella, and while we have our big names (Dillon Francis, Martin Garrix, Marshmello) there a ton of other electronic acts that are going to be just as much of a party. Take a look below at our list of electronic music acts you can’t miss at Coachella 2017.
Up-and-coming DJ, Kungs, is a young DJ from France who made a name for himself with the song “This Girl” which has been streamed millions of times and counting. Kungs plays on the Coachella stage on Friday of both weekends and if you like to dance. AXS interviewed Kungs back in December touring a tour stop in Los Angeles. Watch the interview here.
Carmack is set to play on the DoLab Stage weekend one of the festival, and if you call yourself an electronic music fan, you’ll be there. Carmack, whose heavy beats never disappoint, is definitely a highlight for the electronic music fans at the festival. Check out photos from his set at The Novo in Los Angeles here for an idea of what you’ll miss if you don’t stop by the DoLab Stage.
Big Gigantic not only provide completely satisfying electronic music, but they bring the funk as well. Dom and Jeremy, the duo that makes up Big Gigantic, play actual instruments (Dom on the sax and Jeremy on the drums), put on an amazing performance. In the past year, they’ve dropped a new album and just finished up a tour and Coachella is kicking off their festival season. Big G will be playing on the first night of each weekend, so go get funky with them. Buy tickets to their annual two-night run at Red Rocks here.
Mura Masa is another young DJ, whose name has become more and more recognizable. He’s recently teamed up with Charli XCX, is heading out on summer tour and has also worked with A$AP Rocky. Mura Masa’s energy on stage is contagious and he will be taking the stage day two of each weekend. Grab tickets to his upcoming shows if you won’t be able to catch him at Coachella, here.
What So Not
What So Not used to be one half Flume and one half Emoh, but Flume left the duo in 2015 and Emoh has carried on the What So Not name—and has seen success doing so. Last year, What So Not released Divide & Conquer, embarked on a U.S tour and worked with artists such as Skrillex and RL Grime to create bass-heavy tracks. What So Not will be playing day three during both weekends of Coachella and he will also be playing at Red Rocks on 420 with Flosstradamus, newly added Gucci Mane, Gryffin and Branchez.
