Festival season kicks off on Friday (April 15) when thousands of bohemian-clad concertgoers descend upon Indio, California for another round of Coachella. It’s a magical time of year. A chance to let your hair down, turn up in the dust and indulge your passion for music. There’s only one problem. With dozens of acts performing on a multitude of stages throughout the event, how do you come up with a sensible schedule? We’ve got you covered.

In a fairly indie-centric year at Coachella, it was easy to put together a list of pop-friendly acts that are worth trekking across the Empire Polo Club to see. From hitmakers (Halsey, Ellie Goulding and Alessia Cara) to newcomers (Låpsley, Cloves and Frances) and festival favorites (Flume, Grimes and Major Lazer), there’s a little something for everyone.
