In case you haven’t heard, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicks off today, meaning that hundreds of off-duty ladies 'n’ gents are flocking to Indio, Calif. to get their groupie on. Music festival lineups are still overwhelmingly male, but with each passing year, the female rocker presence seems to grow, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! To give these talented ladies the attention they deserve, we’ve rounded up the coolest chicks performing at this year’s festival.
Scroll down to study up on the flyest girls at Coachella this year, and, if you’re feeling inspired, shop some of their favourite styles, too!
WHAT: The Swedish songstress is known for a mix of upbeat electropop and heartbreaking ballads, all of which include a wide range of instruments from violins to African drums. Listen to "Get Some" and you'll be instantly hooked.
WEAR: Li prefers all things minimal and black. We can totally see her rocking this sleek vest with these slim trousers.
WHAT: The controversial rapper is known for bringing attention to issues like racism and misogyny, topics she doesn't shy away from in her music. "212," an ode to her hometown of NYC, shot her to instant stardom.
WEAR: Banks' style is hard to pin down, as she's always experimenting with prints, embellishment or sportswear. She would definitely love these Giuseppe Zanottis, or perhaps this beaded jacket.
WHAT: Lewis originally fronted the indie rock band Rilo Kiley, and has since pursued a solo career with music that has a folk-ier vibe to it. Listen to her mellow single "Just One of the Guys," and check out the VERY special guests in the video.
WEAR: Lately Lewis has been seen rotating a host of cool suits, and we can totally see her in this classic white blazer paired with sleek pants.
WHAT: As one half of the brother-sister duo that makes up her folk band, Stone works with her brother to craft uber-romantic, heartfelt lyrics that are perfect for falling in (our out of) love. Check out what we mean with "A Heartbreak."
WEAR: Julia is a big fan of dresses, both short and long, and often in lace. She'd probably love this crochet number, or perhaps this black drop-waist dress.
