Despite common-held beliefs, all of us at EO are not just house-heads, but music junkies as well. Unfortunately, this is in fact an electronic dance music blog, so this post will revolve around the stellar EDM acts that are on this years Coachella 2012Â bill. Below I will list the notable EDM acts over the course of the famed California festival. Also, please be aware that Coachella this year is a TWO weekend festival! We will keep you updated on tickets, as they are not yet available. But let me say this: When is the next time you will be able to hear Dre and Snoop rap ‘The Next Episode’ live, then venture over to hear Justice play ‘Phantom Pt. II’ live? The answer is never!
Day 1: Swedish House Mafia, M83, Afrojack, Amon Tobin, The Rapture, Madeon, SebastiAn, Datsik, Breakbot, Feed Me, R3hab, LA Riots
Day 2: David Guetta, Miike Snow, Sebastian Ingrosso, Martin Solveig, Subfocus, SBTRKT, Flying Lotus, Zeds Dead, GROUPLOVE (not EDM related, only adding them because it is my cousins band), Jacques Lu Cont, Borgore, Dragonette, Destructo
I am impressed by the breadth and depth of EDM talent this year. Day 1 is most appealing to me. Swedish House Mafia’s production is unprecedented, M83 put out the best album of the year, Madeon is an EDM prodigy, and SebastiAn puts on the most bizarre/entertaining show I have seen in recent years.
