Coachella has gradually embraced the electronic genre, even giving a headlining slot to an EDM artist for the first time this year!
Featuring sets from the best in the industry, Coachella was nothing short of a spectacle for electronic music fans! The Sherp has picked the best sets available online, that really defined Weekend 1 of the annual festival!
The young German producer/DJ has been on a high ever since his LP True Colors was released. He delivered a fantastic set at Coachella, mixing his new melodic style while still harking back to his old complextro days. The highlight, however, had to be Kesha coming out to perform ‘True Colors’ with him!

The future house producer dropped a heavy set at Coachella, even calling DJ SNAKE on stage in between! As if the number of appearances of acts during other acts’ performances wasn’t high enough already.
3. Jack U
The duo of Skrillex and Diplo (who got to perform twice, thanks to Major Lazer) absolutely slayed Coachella, bringing out Kanye West, Kiesza, AlunaGeorge and Post Malone in between!
4. RL Grime
The famous trap DJ/producer dropped a really heavy mix during his set at Coachella, and as you’d expect from an RL Grime set, it was loaded with copious amounts of bass and synth!
5. Major Lazer
The very start of this set shows how much energy they expected from the crowd. They started off with Pon De Floor before mixing it with Wiwek’s mental track Riot, which is exactly what ML caused! Special appearances included Sean Paul, Mo and DJ Snake!
As you’d expect from the mysterious producer, his Coachella debut was perfect, backing up with a dreamy set featuring all the songs he’s released over the years!
Another trap lord was at the festival. The ‘Harlem Shake’ hit maker demolished Coachella with his bass-infused set, and it’s not bad timing at all, considering that the just released a critically acclaimed album this year!
The future bass producer has an impending LP, Skin, and is promoting it everywhere by including songs from Skin into his magical sets. This one at Coachella was no different, and the crowd lapped up every single minute of it!
