Tomorrow in the heat and dust of the Californian desert Coachella kicks off a second weekend of festival fun.

We don't know about you, but we're feeling incredibly jealous of anyone who gets to be there.

We've been lucky over summer to have had a lot of the bands appearing on the Coachella lineup already play in New Zealand at Big Day Out, Laneway, or on their own tours.

However there are still so many acts that we're dying to see. #FOMO


Pharrell, Solange and OutKast are on our top picks list. Other acts we wish we could be there for include Beck, Julian Casablancas (of The Strokes) and Sleigh Bells. Fingers crossed some of them decide to make the trip out to our little cluster of islands some day soon.

Those artists and more feature in today's playlist, curated by entertainment reviewer Rachel Bache. Follow NZ Herald on Spotify for more playlists.
