Your Guide to the Do Lab at Coachella 2015


The Do Lab, for the uninitiated, is a semi-autonomous region of Coachella where freaks can get freaky, where genre is meaningless, and where bass will be dropped, repeatedly, without pause. Coachella as a festival has added a lot through the years, including expanded VIP areas, gourmet food and drinks, cell reception and WiFi, and thousands of other things, but one thing that hasn't changed is the Do Lab. With deep roots in Los Angeles, the Do Lab is a local treasure that is also responsible for other events, and festivals like Lightning in a Bottle. Above you can see the lineup for both weekends of Coachella, and below are our picks for each weekend.

Weekend One Guide

Must See:

M.A.N.D.Y. are two German producer/DJs who get the groove going early and keep it interesting all the way through. It's firmly house music, but experimental at the same time. This show should be one of the more interesting and trippy electronic shows you'll see at Coachella.

Check them Out:

Joe Kay and Jay Prince are from Soulection, one of our favorite record labels that is currently helping to change the sound of music. There will be low bass, there will be future beats, there will be rare tunes.

Sebastian Leger is a legend, has played every major festival, and can draw big crowds wherever he goes so it's cool to have his funky and sleazy house beats in the Do Lab.

Stop By:

Droog is an L.A.-based DJ Collective who keep the party going, right at a level that you'll need after one of the harder Sahara sets. Think of it as a cool-down...

Loudpvck will drop the bass like none other. There are bigger trap artists playing the larger tents, but none of them will go as hard as Loudpvck.

Weekend Two Guide

Must See:

KRADDY is one of the last remaining dubstep artists at Coachella. Some say that's for the best, but others still want the wubs. Kraddy will go crazy, Kraddy will drop the fattest basslines. Kraddy is what the Do Lab is all about, and has been rocking pretty much every Do Lab that's ever been.

Check them Out:

CRNKN makes booty music, if you want to see some dancers go absolutely ham at Coachella, this might be your best bet.

Stop By:

Tropicool are one of the only representatives of the Nu Disco scene to be found at Coachella. If you're looking for some dance music that isn't House, Trap, or Hip Hop, this is where you ought to be-- should be a good daytime vibe in the sunshine.
