Check out iEDM's 10 Must-See Artists At Coachella 2022 below. 





Swedish House Mafia

It is no secret that the return of the infamous trio known as Swedish House Mafia has sparked newfound energy within the EDM world. The DJ supergroup consisting of Axwell, Steve, Angello, and Sebastion Ingrosso is the only electronic music headliner at Coachella, and for good reason. With a new album on the way, expect Swedish House Mafia to blend the old with the new. Get ready to sing your heart out to classic tracks like “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World,” while getting down to new records like “Moth To A Flame” featuring The Weekend. 





Effortlessly blending house, UK garage, and future bass into his own futuristic sound, Flume is without a doubt one of the most highly-anticipated acts at Coachella this year. While it has been almost six years since the release of his Grammy-winning album Skin, the Australian producer is fearing up to release his third album Palaces, and aims to regain his thrown at the top of the EDM totem pole. You can expect his Saturday night set to be full of high-energy drops, out-of-this-world production, and atmospheric soundscapes that will take you on a sonic journey like no other. 




Jamie XX

Get ready to lose yourself in the mind-melting sounds of Jamie XX. Mixing the sonic influences of indie pop, R&B, and electro-house Jamie XX has created a sound entirely of his own. Whether he is remixing iconic records like Florence+The Machine’s “You’ve Got the Love” or dazzling listeners with his out-of-the-world productions showcased on his 2015 Grammy-nominated album In Colour, the London producer will surely put on a performance like no other. 




Lane 8

Denver-based producer Lane 8 has quickly become one of the premier talents in the melodic house scene. Mixing progressive house, trance, and electronica, Lane 8 cannot be boxed into one specific genre as he takes listeners on a spiritual journey through blissful atmospheres and dreamy soundscapes. With tracks like "Visions," "Brightest Lights," and "Just," expect his Coachella set to blast you into euphoria. His captivating visuals mixed with beautiful melodies will allow you to feel every emotion as you elegantly dance your way to a nostalgic state. 




Fatboy Slim

The modern-day dance scene would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for Fatboy Slim. Known as the world's most beloved DJ, the electronic music pioneer has been pushing the boundaries of dance music for nearly 40 years. Whether he is crafting unique edits for each set or sampling new sounds into his performances, Fatboy Slim knows how to put on a show. 




Louis The Child

Like the lyrics of their hit song “Better Not,” you better not miss Louis The Child’s Friday night set at Coachella. The Chicago-bred dance music duo comprised of Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett are best known for their unique experimental brand of dance-pop. Collaborating with artists such as K Flay, Icona Pop, and more, the dynamic duo has raked in over 500 million streams in the past few years alone. Not only are their productions worthy of high praises, but their live shows have become a crowd favorite due to their nostalgic soundscapes and high-energy festival anthems.





Who doesn’t love a good comeback story? Not only has Los Angeles-based producer TOKiMONSTA helped define the sounds of modern dance music, but she has defied the odds and has one of the most inspiring stories in all of music. After two brain surgeries in the middle of her career, TOKiMONSTA had to completely reteach herself how to walk, communicate, write, and record music. Essentially starting at square one, she relearned production and worked her way back to the stage. Since her surgeries, she has released two massive albums, a number of singles, and has played major festivals like Electric Forest, EDC Vegas, and more. Known for her psychedelic hip-hop beats and west coast electronic flare, her set is one you won’t want to miss.




Duck Sauce

If you love getting down to feel-good house music mixed in with a little disco funk, Duck Sauce is the act for you. The electronic duo comprised of dance music superstars A-Trak and Armand van Helden is sure to get the party started on Sunday. Their biggest song, “Barba Streisand,” is known to get any crowd moving and grooving to the beat. With their impeccable talent on the turntables and forward-thinking energy on the dancefloor, the sound Duck Sauce brings to the table will fit perfectly into the vibe of Coachella. 




Purple Disco Machine

German dance music aficionado Purple Disco Machine is quickly becoming a staple within the electronic music community. His groove-heavy style combines house, disco, funk, and synth-pop, which creates an infectious experience on the dance floor. Achieving both club and radio success, Purple Disco Machine has worked with the likes of Diplo, Mark Ronson, Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, and many more. Taking the stage on Friday, Purple Disco Machine will surely set the dance floor on fire. 





Comprised of Derek Anderson and Scott Land, SLANDER is an electronic duo specializing in melodic dubstep and future bass. Soaring into stardom, the duo has worked with artists such as NGTMRE, Gryffin, Excision, Illenium, Krewella, and more. As one of the most highly-anticipated electronic performances of the weekend, expect their set to be filled with heavy bass, emotional soundscapes, and an energy like no other.
