Friday at Coachella was sick, and we are pumped to get down to some crazy beats out in the California desert again today. SHM tore up the Coachella Stage last night as the night's closing act, demonstrating the rapid rise in popularity of Electronic Dance Music. We are so psyched for today's EDM acts, which include the talents of filthy dubstep master Borgore, bass-bumping dubstep duo Zeds Dead, House superstars Sebastian Ingrosso and David Guetta, and American progressive trance DJ Kaskade (who is closing the Sahara Tent).
And now for Sunday's EDM artist highlights...
Zedd (Prog. House/Dubstep, Sahara Tent, 2:00-2:55) - Zedd has produced some sick remixes, and he consistently plays a bumpin set that is sure to please the crowd.
Flux Pavilion & Doctor P (Dubstep, Sahara Tent, 3:05-4:05) - Dubstep master Flux Pavilion and associated act Doctor P are sure to rock the house with their heavy, headbanging bass anthems. Don't miss.
Porter Robinson (House/Electro House, Sahara Tent, 4:20-5:15) - The young and talented American DJ always puts on a good show with his melodic, yet heavy beats. One of my favorite acts in the EDM world today.
Dada Life (House/Electro House, Sahara Tent, 5:30-6:25) - The Swedish Electro House duo is known for their crazy, energetic live sets. At last year's Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Dada Life sent a 25-piece marching band on their stage to accompany them during their set. Expect a great show.
Nero (Dubstep/Drum & Bass, Sahara Tent, 6:50-8:05) - The British trio of producers Daniel Stephens and Joseph Ray and vocalist Alana Watson puts on a mean show, consistently pleasing the crowd with their poppy dubstep mixes and mellow drum & bass tracks.
Justice (French House, Coachella Stage, 7:45-8:45) - The French House duo Justice is ready to tear apart the Coachella stage with their hard-hitting, groovy electronic beats. They killed it at Ultra Music Festival this year with notable tracks "D.A.N.C.E.," "DVNO," and newer tracks off their 2nd recording Audio, Video, Disco such as "Helix." It is a great opportunity to see Justice perform live again. Do not miss this show! Our review of Justice's performance at Ultra Music Festival can be found here.
Calvin Harris (Electro House, Sahara Tent, 8:25-9:35) - Scottish DJ, vocalist, and record producer Calvin Harris always impresses the crowd with his melodic and lyrical house style. The DJ has recently reached a height of new success for singles such as the ever-popular "Feel So Close," which has been popularly remixed by dubstep artists of Nero and the like. We are super excited to see Calvin perform at this year's Coachella Valley Music festival, after he was blatantly missing from Ultra Music Festival's 2012 Lineup. Don't miss.
Avicii (Prog. House/Prog. Trance, Sahara Tent, 10:10) - Swedish House superstar Avicii has recently rocketed to an unprecedented level of fame for an electronic music producer, standing on stages with the likes of Madonna at this year's Ultra Music Festival when she infamously asked the packed main stage crowd "How many of you have seen Molly?". Avicii's tracks have become anthems for the Electronic Dance Music scene, and many have broken through to the mainstream. Sure to be a great set.
