Coachella 2016 is less than a week away and despite the excitement for headliners such as;
Guns n’ Roses and Calvin Harris. But what I am most excited for is the Do LaB stage, a smaller lesser known stage featuring must-see up and coming artists. Some of which include;
Imagined Herbal Flows, Wave Racer, Sam Gellaitry, STWO, San Holo, and many many others.
Coachella, in my opinion, is the perfect festival to discover new music outside of pure streaming, a chance for one to enjoy live music from all different genres that one wouldn’t normally get the chance to. What makes the Do LaB stage so amazing is not only the actual stage which features water guns, aerial performers, and overall chill transcendental vibes but also artists who are hustlers and have worked so hard to land playing at probably one of the the biggest venues to date in each of their careers. There’s a reason why the Do LaB stage has been ranked each year as the best “dance floor” and I highly encourage everyone to at least stop by the Do LaB to experience it for yourselves, even if it requires tearing yourself away from the pure house and EDM of the main stage.
This will be my third time at Coachella and every year, I have seen the careers of artists who play at the Do LaB explode. In Coachella 2014, it was Odesza who you can now find headlining at every major festival but started out humbly as a small act at the Do LaB stage with a crowd of maybe 100 people. In Coachella 2015, it was Jai Wolf and Jay Prince and Joe Kay from Soulection.
You can find Jai Wolf now touring the world playing his own shows and Soulection having come to define the genre of future beats. I am attending Weekend One this year and I’m most excited to see San Holo and even more intrigued to see how the future progression of his career will take into effect months to come. For those going Weekend Two, please check out Sam Gelliatry, Sweater Beats, Ekali, Hotel Garuda, Melvv, and STWO on my behalf as the Do LaB stage hosts a completely different lineup for each weekend of Coachella.
Come find me at Coachella 2016 Weekend 1 and shoot me a message on FB/Soundcloud if you’re going to be there!
