3. Thomas Gold
Thomas Gold is one of those emerging DJs that came out of Miami Music Week and Winter Music Conference in 2011. Since being picked up by Swedish House Mafia's Axwell on his Axtone Records the German artist has produced a kaleidoscope of tracks from big room progressive house, electro to tech house on various labels. His icy clean progressive beats, epic build ups and breakdowns have made him infamous on the festival circuit with songs like "Sing2Me" and "Alive." Not to mention his personal edits and remixes for artists like Miike Snow and Adele which captivate crowds. This summer, Gold unveiled an 8-piece drum line at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Governor's Island in New York. Coachella being known for doing epic shit would be crazy not to have this live drum line with one of EDM's fast rising stars at this years fest.

The German Markus Schulz has taken over Miami and the rest of the world by storm over the past decade with his multilayered approach to dark trance and progressive electronic music. Since other trance legends such as Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Paul Van Dyk and Above & Beyond have played Coachella in it's earlier years, we think it's about time Indio gets a taste of some of the deep unicorn-slaying trance that Schulz is famous for. He and his Coldharbour Recordings have paved the way for the now harder style of progressive trance dominating the scene today with his artists like KhoMha proving that trance is no longer for the lovesick and can bang as hard at any major festival. Of course Schulz would have to play for at least two hours to be able to take us on that mystical journey of deep synths spliced with the percussive vocals of his hits like "Nothing Without Me."

Let me get this strait, you neglect to put Markus' solo NYE set at Avalon on the top five EDM parties to attend for NYE, but somehow he's now your number 2 DJ who needs to play coachella?   fml.

I think the Coachella crowd would definitely embrace the trap a lot more this year, but can't deny they are definitely missing the legendary Unicorn Slayer and tech house king Umek

@inmyopinion NYE is the time to do something unique and special... unfortunately Avalon isn't really that since we go there so often. Plus we've seen his solo open to close sets several times last year at WMC and so forth. Regardless that doesn't take away from the fact that he is an amazing producer and master of his craft. He would tear the shit out of the Coachella tent for sure and we want to see him there and all of the other festivals we will attend in 2013 :)
