The internet is abuzz this week after the Coachella festival finally dropped its’ 2020 lineup. On the weekends of April 10 and 19, tens of thousands of festival-goers will travel to Indio, California to catch some of the biggest artists of our time. Spanning multiple genres, Coachella always has something for everyone. This year, the official headliners will be Rage Against the Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott. And among them are countless other acts that you can’t miss!
Still, dance music is relatively underrepresented at Coachella. In 2016, Calvin Harris was the first dance music artist to headline the festival. That being said, we decided to highlight all of the dance music artists on the 2020 lineup.

Calvin Harris will be playing Coachella again as well as dance music powerhouses Flume, Disclosure, and Fatboy Slim.
