It’s a new year and that means an all new Coachella lineup. In case you missed it, this one is stacked with their usual amazing array of artists. The festival is known for bringing some of the best contemporary artists together for their stacked weekends back-to-back. However, this year will be different from others. Coachella 2019 is special because this year, both weekends will be live-streamed through YouTube!
Formerly, only the first weekend of the festival has been made available for live stream. This opportunity creates a whole new life for all those who don’t feel like paying for the ticket, taking the ride or maybe just can’t. It opens up a whole new world of “Couchella” if you will, which is exciting for all of us! Whether you can’t make it there or don’t want to catch it in person, here are the top five sets we can’t miss during the Couchella livestream.
Combining a classic house bass with primal undertones and innovative sounds is this dude’s specialty. At only 25 he’s aiming to be one of the hottest artists of the year, with a highly anticipated set ahead of every performance. His latest remix of Marshmello and Bastille’s Happier is a clear demonstration of this artist’s versatility, and part of why we look forward to every one of his sets.
2. Walker & Royce
Innovation in the world of house music is not always common, which is why these two are making this list. As one of Dirtybird’s most unique artists, they’re setting new trends through production. Their tracks are some of the most creative in the genre and they pull out their best for a show. Go ahead and watch the video for their collab with Green Velvet, you’ll see why.
Another Dirtybird artist that’s relatively new to the fold. However, he’s no less talented for being so fresh; Fisher is behind some of the hottest tracks of the past year, including Ya Kidding and Losing It. This up and coming rave star is another innovative and passionate artist that we like to see. His track Crowd Control shows off some of his musical abilities that will leave you dancing in the comfort of your home.
This artist is a unique and amazing force in the EDM world. Her genre of “global bass” or “world bass” draws instrumental elements from all over into a beautiful style of her own. This type of music lends her the ability to explore with her sounds. She presents a raw and wild experience with every set that speaks to everyone a little differently. Her track Spiral speaks to this rich uniqueness.
Don’t be fooled by his name, he’s nothing close to a nightmare. Instead, he’s perhaps a dream full of big sound, big energy, and big bass. This heavy hitter is typically a show you’ll thrash and headbang at, so expect Coachella to be no different. Sometimes you need to get a little hype at a festival, even when you’re all the way at home. His latest track with Big Gigantic is a taste of what this guy can do.
