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.

From hitmakers (Halsey, Ellie Goulding and Alessia Cara) to newcomers (L├ąpsley, Cloves and Frances) and festival favorites (Flume, Grimes and Major Lazer), there’s a little something for everyone.
