In recent years, Coachella has added more electronic and dance acts to their festival. The usual alt-rock heavy lineup has turned into a split between bands as well as electronic acts. In 2006, Depeche Mode became the first electronic act to land a main spot at the fest.
Coachella 2016 marks the year of two dance/electronic acts filling three of the headlining spots. LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris are the headliners scheduled to close out Friday and Sunday (respectively) of the two-weekend event. This is the first time two electronic headliners have been at the top of the bill in Coachella history.
