6 Artists On The Coachella 2019 Lineup That You Need To Listen To ASAP

Festival season has officially begun with the most renowned of them all: the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Over the years, Coachella has built up a reputation of exclusivity when it comes to festival outfits, VIP packages and A-List lineups. Weekend one of Coachella kicked off on April 12, 2019, and performances are being streamed live on YouTube both weekends (April 12-14 and April 19-21).

This year's headliners include rapper Childish Gambino, alternative band Tame Impala and pop phenomenon Ariana Grande. The rest of the lineup is pretty impressive, sprinkled with the likes of Janelle Monáe, The 1975, Kacey Musgraves, Khalid, Billie Eilish and Solange.

Here are six artists performing at this year's festival that you need to feast your ears upon. If you haven't heard of them now, you definitely will after Coachella's first weekend.

1. Bazzi

Top songs: “Mine," “Beautiful (feat. Camila Cabello),” “3:15”

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past year, there’s a chance you’ve heard “You’re so f***ing precious when you smile” take over the internet. Those are the opening lyrics of Bazzi’s “Mine,” a love song turned meme thanks to social media. The prominence and virality of the single ultimately led to Bazzi’s gig as the opening act for Camila Cabello’s 2018 “Never Be the Same” tour, as well as their collaboration on his dreamy hit “Beautiful.” If you like flirtatious lyrics over dreamlike hip-hop inspired beats, Bazzi’s your guy.

2. Sofi Tukker

Top songs: “Best Friend (feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno)," “Batsh*t," “Fantasy"

There is a 90% chance that you've heard Sofi Tukker's “Best Friend" at least once in your life. The New York-based duo formed in 2014 and mix 90s house and “jungle pop" to create their signature dance sound. Over rhythmic beats lay nonchalant vocals and eclectic lyrics. If “Selfie" by the Chainsmokers or “Let's Have a Kiki" by the Scissor Sisters get you going, then Sofi Tukker will make you lose all control and let loose.


Top songs: “DDU-DU DDU-DU,” “Kill This Love,” “Kiss and Makeup (with Dua Lipa)”

Similar to their male counterparts BTS, BLACKPINK has taken over the world. The K-pop quartet infuses hip-hop and trap beats with pop vocals and killer choreography. The girl group is the first female K-pop act to perform at Coachella, and it’s no mystery since K-pop is on the rise. If you’re down to learn a new language for the sake of catchy english hooks and infectious trap beats, BLACKPINK is the group for you.

4. Bad Bunny

Top songs: “Caro,” ""Te Boté" (feat. Nio García, Darell and Casper Mágico, Nicky Jam and Ozuna),” “MÍA (feat. Drake)

Let’s just start with: Bad Bunny be-bebé. That line kicks off most of the Puerto Rican Spanish trap artist’s songs and sends fans into a frenzy. Although Bad Bunny’s music is entirely in Spanish, it’s still infectious and the go-to for parties across the globe. Aside from being featured on Cardi B’s “I Like It,” which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, has been certified six times platinum in the U.S. and was nominated for Record of the Year at was the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, Bad Bunny has released his debut album X 100PRE which is incredibly popular in the urban latin music community.

5. H.E.R

Top songs: “Best Part (feat. Daniel Caesar),” “Focus,” “Could’ve Been (feat. Bryson Tiller)”

Gabi Wilson, who’s better known by her stage name H.E.R, is a 21-year-old R&B artist and Grammy recipient for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance. H.E.R emerged into the music scene in 2016 with breathy vocals and infectious melodies over subtle trap beats. She’s most known for post-breakup ballads and lending vocals to collaborations with Daniel Caesar and Bryson Tiller. If contemporary R&B hits you in all the right spots, H.E.R is your perfect match.

6. A R I Z O N A

Top songs: “Oceans Away," “Cross my Mind," “I Was Wrong"

A rock and electro-pop band originally from New Jersey, A R I Z O N A has begun to make their mark in the music industry. The band supported Panic! at the Disco during their 2018 “Pray for the Wicked" tour. Their debut studio album GALLERY was released in May 2017 and peaked #143 on the Billboard Hot 200. If you're into feel-good alternative vibes that are slightly reminiscent of Walk the Moon, A R I Z O N A is the band for you.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
