Coachella 2014: 5 artists to catch in the Yuma Tent

yuma tent coachella 2014The Yuma Tent–which hosts both rising stars and the biggest names in “underground” dance music–was one of the most welcomed upgrades at Coachella last year, and is a sanctuary for those looking to escape the mainstream EDM and kandy kids found in the Sahara Tent. KCRW’s Jason Bentley and LA’s Sound Nightclub curated the lineup and designed the tent: air conditioning,  hardwood floors, couches and disco lights.

But fans that tried to catch sets by Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Seth Troxler, Richie Hawtin, or any set during the mid-day heat, were greeted by a 30-45 minute queue leading into the Yuma Tent. Things are going to change for the Tent’s second rendition.

According to a source close to Goldenvoice, the Yuma Tent will double in size this year to accommodate the growing popularity of deep house and underground dance music. The same source also told us the Yuma Tent will feature a beer garden, which seems logical considering the Heineken Dome will not be at Coachella this year. Deep house, air conditioning, beer garden? Sounds great!
