9 Women DJs That Should Be Playing Coachealla 2016

Since Coachella announced this year’s lineup you’ve heard the buzz about major reunions from bands like Guns’ N Roses and LCD Soundsystem. Incredibly, after two decades of acrimony, GNR’s Slash and Axel Rose will share the stage for the first time in 20 years and LCD Soundsystem will be back after a five-year hiatus.

And though Coachealla built it’s fanbase on the backs of big alternative rock acts (and reunions), the EDM lineup has become more and more mainstream and, in recent years, has begun to rival some of the largest EDM festivals in the world like Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Tomorrowland in Belgium.

Last year’s Coachella EDM lineup had huge names like Kaskade, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Alesso, and David Guetta.

What do all of those acts have in common?

They’re ALL dudes!

So why haven’t more women DJ’s been booked? When it comes to dance music it’s easy to say it’s a “male-dominated genre” but forgive us if we think this is a LAME excuse. After all, there are a TON of talented female DJs and producers!

Excluding some of EDM’s most talented women from Coachealla seems to echo a lack of diversity seen in other areas of the entertainment industry. To help turn the tide, we’d like to do our part and recommend 9 excellent women that festival organizers would do well to include next year.

Are you listening Coachella? Good, then check these out!

1. Lauren Abedini

Lauren, aka “KITTENS”, got her start DJing for Kid Cudi. She stands out first and foremost for her eclectic music—a mash-up of hip-hop, electronic, and pop. Kittens is building up an incredible resume for herself as a highly in-demand sound selector for parties all over the world.

2. Ellen Allien

The German producer, DJ, and musician has been synonymous with IDM and techno in Europe since the early 90s, and she’s still going strong. She now splits her time at residencies in Ibiza and Berlin, and at the beginning of 2016 will be playing festivals in Playa del Carmen, Reykjavik, London and other exotic locales.

3. Rebecca & Fiona

Swedish duo Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatrick, have killed it with their club anthems and infectious energy. They started producing music together in 2007 and released their first album in 2011. With their electro and house music, mixed with chill vibes and indie feels, Rebecca and Fiona would be an amazing addition to Coachella!

4. Mija

This Phoenix-based DJ would be a great addition to this year’s mix with her high-energy, trap and house-based sounds. She was so good playing at Bonnaroo that Skrillex reached out to her asking if they could join forces.

5. Nervo
Nervo, the outstanding sister DJ duo of Miriam and Olivia, are blazing a major trail in the EDM world. Ranked the 20th best DJ in the world by DJ Mag, this dynamic duo are only looking up after successfully performing at Tomorrowland Brasil in 2015. As they wear their whacky outfits with sets are full of energy, they bring a vibe to progressive house.

6. Sandrien

Dutch DJ and former Amsterdam resident Sandrien is amazing. If you like techno that is as hard as it is melodic, get into her. Her sounds are truly different.

7. Honey Dijon

Chicago-bred DJ Honey Dijon knows how to seduce clubgoers with her unique sound that brings together classic house, disco, techno, and tech house. Her soulful sounds will transport you into another world! If you’re looking for great music to chill to, Honey Dijon is for you!

8. Kim Ann Foxman

This former Hercules and Love Affair singer has moved beyond singing and focused on DJing and producing, and has rocked clubs from London to Berlin. With her hypnotic dance beats and driving melody, Kim Ann Foxman could definitely shake things up at Coachella and other festivals around the world!

9. rRoxymore
Originally from the South of France Berlin-based rRoxymore performs live, dynamic sets that take you from the depths of disco to the heights of house music. She has performed at all the major clubs in the world, like Fabric, Panorama Bar and Kater Blau. Her selections will really keep you on your toes, even when you feel like you can’t dance anymore. To me, some of her sounds feel harsh and a little alien, but definitely good to dance to!
