These are the 5-must-see artists at Coachella 2018.

Coachella returns to Indio, California, this weekend. The trendy music and arts festival is repeated over two weekends, with a huge host of names featured across a number of stages.

Beyonce, The Weekend and Eminem take on headlining duties this year, alongside some of the biggest names in contemporary music, including Alt-J, Post Malone, King Krule, SZA and Tyler, The Creator.

Rather than talking about the names we expect you ’ll definitely know about already, we’ve used leading A&R scouting platform TalentAI to pick out five must-see, fast-growing artists at Coachella 2018.

Here are the 5 must-see artists at Coachella 2018, selected by TalentAI.

MØ

Danish pop polymath Marie Ørsted, better known as MØ, is fast becoming one of the best names in pop. After rising the ranks with her debut album, MØ is now the 177th most listened to artist in the world. Featuring on some of the biggest pop anthems in the past three years including Major Lazer’s Lean On, she is an obvious artist to catch at Coachella for banger-after-banger.

Her sophomore album is expected later this year. As she begins to tease tracks from the forthcoming release, she has recently released 'Nostalgia', which has pushed her total playlist following to over 55 million, with features on 589 influential playlists (TalentAI).

Tom Misch

Having collaborated with the likes of Zak Abel, Jordan Rakei and Loyle Carner, Tom Misch has always worked hard to combine styles and connections within his music. His debut album ‘Geography’ is no exception.

Fusing a smooth jazz sound with new wave hip-hop beats, featuring De La Soul, Poppy Adjudha, Loyle Carner and GoldLink, the record is finely tuned but offers a myriad of elements which clash exceptionally. Misch heads to Coachella with his new album, on the back of a 160% increase in his playlist following to over 14 million (TalentAI).

Sigrid

Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid is a long way from the sunny seaport of Ålesund this weekend. Growing up in the town 300 miles from Oslo, she has quickly become the flag bearer for a new wave of scandi-pop taking over the music world.

The BBC Sound of 2018 winner enjoyed a huge breakthrough year after the release of her anthemic debut EP ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ in February 2017, following it up with the equally as euphoric ‘Strangers’. Sigrid makes her debut at Coachella this weekend. Sigrid has picked up over 100m streams on her releases to date and enjoys a strong playlist following of over 30 million. Following the release of her new single ‘Raw’, Sigrid’s direct Spotify following has grown to 130k, with a 3,000 increase in the past 7 days alone (TalentAI).

THEY. are a Los Angeles-based duo comprised of Dante and Drew Love. Both arriving in L.A. separately, Drew was writing for the likes of Chris Brown and Jerimih, whilst Dante offered his producing talents to will.i.am and Kelly Clarkson.

After a chance meeting, the duo decided to combine their talents and form THEY. Following the release of ‘Working For It’, in collaboration with ZHU and Skrillex, THEY. have grown rapidly, with their blend of R&B, hip-hop, rock and pop perfect for Coachella.

Following the release of their latest single ‘Ain’t the Same’, the duo have enjoyed features on 101 influential Spotify playlists, driving a 30% increase in their total playlist followers to 13.4m (TalentAI).

Elohim

Elohim

L.A. based Elohim is a one-woman alternative electro-producer, with an unreal vision and vocal. Riding huge synthy beats and rippling baselines with her soft vocal, Elohim features on Ekali’s latest single 'Forever'.  With features on 59 influential playlists, the new release has driven a growth in her playlist following to over 12 million (TalentAI).

Well known for her solid live set and ability to connect with  fans, tracks like 'Sleepy Eyes' are sure to go down well at Coachella 2018.
