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. Bat for Lashes, the Wombats, El-P, and Biffy Clyro are all stellar live acts who, even at 2 and 3 in the afternoon, are going to give the big acts like Phoenix and New Order a run for their money as the best band to play Saturday.

This list is meant to be a sounding board for who you think the best band playing Saturday is going to be. Obviously we know Franz Ferdinand is going to put on a killer show on the big stage, but are you maybe a little more excited catch Janelle Monae and Jason Bentley 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).
