FIVE UNMISSABLE ELECTRONIC ACTS AT COACHELLA 2013

From looking at Coachella's line-up this year, it is obvious that festival organisers are conscious of the dance music explosion that has swept the States.

Spanning five massive stages, the bill for this year's festival includes some big dance talent like Knife Party, Fedde Le Grand, Eric Prydz and Hardwell, but it also includes some acts which might not always be seen on a domestic festival stage.

Although it's unlikely there's going to be a Daft Punk appearance, the festival is still stacked. See all the set times here and check out our top five unmissable acts below.

Four Tet (Friday, 6-7:30 at Yuma)

The amazing and experimental Four Tet has had a few gigs in the US, and has even recently remixed the universally loved pop sensation Justin Timberlake. Seeing him on a festival stage though will be quite the experience, as he can play everything from jazz records to his danceable remixes.

TNGHT (Friday, 8:35-9:20 at Gobi)

The genre defying project TNGHT is a collaboration between two accomplished producers, Lunice (pictured left) and Hudson Mohawke. In the midst of a US tour and having just released a new single 'Acrylics', their live show is something refreshing and very impressive.

Jamie XX (Sunday, 3:15-4:30 at Yuma)

An integral part of the The XX who released their well-received album 'Coexist' in late 2012, Jamie (pictured right) will be playing a DJ set at Coachella. Having a knack for sultry and melodic house, Jamie is an incredibly talented DJ who has just done an amazing 90 minute mix for Boiler Room.

Paul Kalkbrenner (Sunday, 5-6 at Sahara)

Mr. Kalkbrenner is rarely seen in the US, so seeing this living legend is an absolute must. If his amazing film 'Berlin Calling' isn't reason enough to check him out, his cult following and amazing catalogue of productions make him a festival necessity. This may be cliche, but hearing 'Sky & Sand' live at a festival in California could be magical.

Julio Bashmore (Saturday, 7:30-9 at Yuma)

The UK bass phenomenon has carved out his own niche within contemporary house music, and his festival sets across the pond have been regarded as some of the best. Hear Julio play his Broadwalk magic and warm up the Yuma tent for Cassy and Richie Hawtin.
