Madeon

Hugo Leclercq is only just out of his teens, but he can already count Lady Gaga and Annie Mac among the thousands going nuts for his big, poppy disco-house beats. The Daft Punk-inspired, French-born wunderkind swings into town to play an explosive, sold-out El Rey show.

Chet Faker

Critics' pick

The splendidly named Chet Faker—Nick Murphy, to his pals back in hometown Melbourne—first hit the scene via his languid (and gorgeous) 2011 remake of Blackstreet's "No Diggity." He's been working his warm, left-field R&B sound ever since. Hear his woozy, jazz-inflected electronic soul music live at Club Nokia as he promotes his debut album, Built on Glass, released last April. Tickets for the Club Nokia show are technically sold out, but we're guessing you know where to look.

Club Nokia Until Wed Apr 15

Clean Bandit

A year ago, Clean Bandit were an underground crew picking up tastemakers’ respect for their weird-but-it-works blend of classical strings and funky house-pop. Then came "Rather Be," followed by their Top Five debut album New Eyes (named iTunes Dance album of the year), and they became one of 2014’s biggest new acts. This Fonda show should be quite the celebration.

Glass Animals

Hailing from Oxford, England (also the home of Radiohead), this buzzworthy experimental electronic-pop outfit combines smart guitars with subtle electronics. Its debut album, Zaba, is full of lush, hazy pop curveballs layered with psychedelic synthwork and gentle electronic beats. The band heads to town between the two weekends of Coachella, stopping to play at both the Fonda and the Glass House. New York multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano will open both nights.

Brand New + Built to Spill

Long Island band Brand New were—and still are—the best "emo" band that isn't an emo band. It's been a few years since the band released new material, but rumors of new recordings have been circulating, and the foursome is also playing Coachella. Joining them at this Shrine Expo Hall show will be Idaho-based indie-rock band Built to Spill, coming off of last year's FYF show with a brand-new album, Untethered Moon. The band touches on a variety of genres, venturing from new-wave to reggae sounds. What's more? Conor Oberst's angry political-rock outfit, Desaparecidos, are also on the bill of this sold-out Localchella show.
