Top 10 | Coachella Must-See Artists

Times they are a-changin’ and music is constantly evolving. Coachella began as one of the best festivals for rock, indie, underground hip-hop, electronic, and avant-garde artists outside the realm of commercialized music monarchy. For the first time in history, Coachella is running without a single rock headliner (this year's headliners: The Weeknd, Beyonce, and Eminem) and not everyone is stoked about it. Musical tastes aside, one can experience the production value and scale that comes with huge artists paired with the authenticity and accessibility of smaller acts. Keep reading for our top 10 must-see artists worthy of all the attention.

No News Is Good News by Phonte

I was maybe 25 when I met Phonte. I was late to one of his shows at B.B. King’s near Time Square in NYC (which sounds easy to get to but with all the tourists, just walking a block sometimes feels like an hour). I walked, and Phonte was standing right there, talking with someone. Since I had no shame, I walked over and full on interrupted to ask for a pic.
