Whether they’re a headliner or an opener, whether they’re hip-hop, dance, rock & roll, or something somewhere in the middle, there are a handful of sets that you’re definitely going to want to pencil into your schedule.

Our list so far includes: Bearstronaut (#7) Lucius (#6), Viva Viva/Royal Teeth (#5) and The Airborne Toxic Event (#4)!
