Coachella just announced its lineup so you know what that means…festival season has officially kicked off! If going to a music festival is a part of your 2018 music goals, now is the time to start measuring up the line up and the prices. Here are the acts I would check out each day:
Friday: The Weeknd, SZA, Jamiroquai, Vince Staples, Daniel Caesar
I’ve already seen The Weeknd, SZA and Vince Staples live. All very amazing live and their music comes alive in a way you don’t expect. Also, I have a feeling if The Weeknd is a headliner than he will probably have new music out. I keep hearing good things about Daniel Caesar so I would love to check him out live.
Saturday: Beyoncé, Post Malone, Snakehips, Marian Hill, Jorja Smith
Honestly I’m only very familiar with Beyonce, and people have been waiting over a year to see her at Coachella since she had to cancel last year because of the twins. I saw Post Malone live a few years ago, and “rockstar” isn’t a horrible song so I would swing by his set. I like Snakehips remix of Banks “Warm Water” and they were cool at Lolla back in 2016 so I would see them again. I heard of few Marian Hill songs in passing and I like Jorja Smith on “Get It Together” so I would love to see more from both acts.
Sunday: Eminem, Migos, Cardi B, Miguel, French Montana, 6lack, Aminé, DeJ Loaf, Noname, LION BABE, They.
I’ve never seen Eminem live and being from Detroit I feel like I need to do this eventually. I hope he focuses on the hits; I really don’t know his deep cuts. I saw Migos a few times before and it is pretty turnt, and I hope Cardi B has some more songs to justify a full set because I do like “Bodak Yellow.” French, Amine, DeJ Loaf, LION BABE all at least have one song I like so I would be willing to check out their sets. I saw Noname at Lolla last year and its a nice low key time. They. was amazing live and one of the best concerts I saw last year so I’m probably most excited about them. I saw Miguel at Pitchfork back in 2016 and it was such this psychedelic (minus the drugs) cool journey and put a twist on his work that I would so do it again.
Here are some concert photos from some of the acts that I shot before:
