With the second weekend of Coachella 2015 among us, festival goers are gearing up for another hot weekend of dancing and raving at one of the world’s most popular music festivals. With EDM encompassing over half of the acts this year, with both mainstream and lesser-known EDM artists, it’s clear that Electronic Dance Music is consistently on the rise at large-scale, world-renowned festivals.
For those of us not lucky enough to make it to Coachella to catch David Guetta reunite with The Black Eyed Peas for their new single, “This is Awesome,” or to see ODESZA shut down the Gobi Tent, and would prefer to see these acts live rather than via the livestream on the Coachella website, you can catch many of these same artists that are bound to make a lot more noise this weekend at varying festivals across the United States and the world.
Here are some artists to look for at other music festivals this Spring and Summer, with many of them performing at more than one!
