Coachella is upon us, people! More than 130 bands will descend upon the California desert the weekends of April 13 and 20. This year’s schedule combines classic reunions (UK rockers Pulp, Swedish hardcore band Refused, Texas post-hardcore group At the Drive-In), festival mainstays (Radiohead, The Black Keys) and enough electronic music to make you believe you partied in Ibiza in its heyday (Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta).

Spot a few bands you didn’t recognize? We’ve put together The Complete Coachella Playlist on Spotify, a compilation of nearly every group appearing so you can plan your schedule accordingly. Friendly tip for when you’re out there: Cell phones are useless; plan meeting spots. The more you know.
