Kaskade, who was the only electronic act on the festival’s Main Stage, shattered attendance records, which has ignited the question: is electronic music taking over Coachella? Based on the size of Kaskade’s crowd, it just might be and the results of Shazam’s list further solidify that. Only two songs on the list are not by electronic artists, #10 is ‘Baby Blue’ by Action Bronson and Chance The Rapper and #2 is ‘Earned It’ by The Weeknd. According to Shazam, DJ Snake dominated the festival, taking the #1 and #3 spots with ‘Lean On’ and ‘You Know You Like It’. Chet Faker, Deorro, Kygo and David Guetta also found their ways onto the list, as well as Jack U and Galantis even though they did not perform at the event.
With all this in mind, it’s pretty safe to say that electronic music is most definitely taking over Coachella.
