Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

The lineup for the 2016 edition of Coachella music festival has been announced and always, it's a doozy. Some are already calling it one of the best Coachella lineups ever. This highly anticipated American music festival takes place in Indio, CA on April 15-17 and April 22-24 and will feature some of the biggest and boldest names in music history and today. Coachella has been known to reunite some of the greatest bands of all time and Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famers along with the brightest young stars and breakout bands of 2016. No matter how you cut it, Coachella bands are usually great and this year is no different. 

So who's on the Coachella 2016 lineup? EDM and pop music are heavily represented in this year's Cocahella lineup. Must-see dance artists like Calvin Harris, Major Lazer, and Disclosure headline on separate days. This year's Coachella lineup also includes more female-fronted bands than it has in recent years with Ellie Goulding kicking off the fest as one of Friday's headliners and Sia closing it down on Sunday. If you're at a loss for who to see at Coachella 2016, you could always check out Ranker's list of the best albums of 2015 and see which artists are playing the festival. Vince Staples, Sufjan Stevens, Chrvches, and Grimes all appear high on that list. 

So, what band are you excited to see at Coachella? Is it the newly reunited Guns N' Roses and LCD Soundsystem? Or is it Diplo's Jack U and Major Lazer? No matter how you look at it, many of the best indie rock and best EDM artists at Coachella in 2016.

Have at it. Vote for the bands you want to see at Coachella in 2016. Give the thumbs up if you like 'em, downvote 'em if they aren't going to be on your calendar.
