The Most Must-See Coachella Bands - Day 1

Even without Daft Punk and The Rolling Stones- which were seemingly locks for this year's lineup- the Coachella 2013 line-up is strong...as you go down the list into the 10-font bands and start to get a sense of what this year's festival is really going to be all about. Jello Biafra, Alt-J, the Neighbourhood, and Aesop Rock are all stellar live acts who, even at 2 and 3 in the afternoon, are going to give the big acts like Blur and the Stone Roses a run for their money as the best band to play Friday.

This list is meant to be a sounding board for who you think the best band playing Friday is going to be. Obviously we know the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are going to put on a killer show on the big stage, but are you maybe a little more excited catch Dog Blood and Four Tet in the tents? This is the place to vote for the bands YOU KNOW will end up being festival favorites so you can look back after the weekend and let your friends know that you knew who would be big first (as it should be).
