Festival Fact: The more artists you are familiar with before the festival, the more you are going to enjoy it. You never know which artists you should see until you listen to them. Imagine for a minute your new favorite artist is going to be playing at your next festival—wouldn’t you want to know their music now so you can see them instead of finding out about them months or even years from now?
The best way to learn the lineup for the festival is to use the FestEvo app to listen to each artist and rank them. Once you have ranked each artist, FestEvo will give you a custom schedule that shows each artist color-coordinated based on your rankings. Once you have your five-star artists, you should spend the weeks before the festival getting to know their music. By the time the festival arrives, you will be able to watch music you love all day long.
Here is a list of the artists that were on the 2012 Coachella lineup that no one had heard of at the time who are now headliners: Kendrick Lamar, Zeds Dead, Childish Gambino, Zedd, Grouplove, Gary Clark JR.
I can’t stress this enough. The more artists you know, the more fun you will have and the longer you will enjoy going to festivals.
