Now that the 2015 lineup is announced, what bands are you excited to see at Coachella? This isn't an easy question since the lineup is as strong and eclectic as anything the festival has put together in the past few years. There's a nice blend of rock, indie rock, electronica, EDM, hip hop and R&B to keep traffic steadily flowing between stages. But that's also problematic since there are so many awesome bands to see, which will no doubt lead to the usual Coachella scheduling conflicts. There are a bunch of artists playing this year who could be called the best groups to play Coachella.

So, who are you going to see at Coachella? Is it the headlining trio of AC/DC, Drake, or Jack White? Or the surprise inclusion of Steely Dan? How about the return of bands like Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, and Florence and the Machine? If you're into electronic dance music artists, how about seeing Porter Robinson, David Guetta, or Alesso? No matter what type of music you like, there's probably something to hear and discover. Many bands have been discovered at Coachella; that's the beauty of the festival. So, outside of the bands you're excited to see, there are plenty of others you should check out as well.

This list of Coachella bands includes every single group slated to play in the lineup for the three-day extravaganza, which will take place on April 10-12, 2015 and April 17-19, 2015. Vote up the bands you want to see and vote down the bands you aren't too excited about. Make your vote count as your favorite Coachella bands need your votes!
