But what about the actual headliners at these events? What are their festival essentials to (stylishly) survive a weekend of camping, live music and warm weather? We reached out to a few up-and-comers to find out. Read on to learn what this year's performers are making sure to pack before they hit the stage at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and more.
Australian DJ and producer Alison Wonderland is no stranger to the music festival scene. She's kept the crowds dancing at Coachella, Ultra and EDC, to name a few. This year, you can catch her behind the decks at Lollapalooza, Electric Forest Festival, Middlelands and the Shaky Beats Festival.

Fun fact: Bishop Briggs discovered her love for performing at the age of four while doing karaoke in Tokyo. (She was born in London, lived in Tokyo, as well as Hong Kong, and is currently based in Los Angeles. Whoa.) The 24-year-old, whose sound is often described as a trap-pop version of Florence Welch, has already gone on a major tour with Coldplay and released two hit singles — "Wild Horses" and "River," which, by the way, we suggest you watch this dance video featuring the latter. Alongside her debut self-titled EP (out today!), Briggs is kicking off a 25-city national tour with Coachella on Saturday, along with a few more festival pitstops, like Lollapalooza, Panaroma and Firefly through the summer. Catch her while you can because she's set to be big.

Eli and Fur
London-based Eliza Noble and Jennifer Skillman make up the DJ-and-producer duo Eli & Fur, and ever since their breakout year in 2015, these women have been filling up dance clubs with their trance-inducing music all over the world. Catch these two on both weekends of Coachella this month.

If you haven't heard Flint Eastwood's infectious pop debut EP "Small Victories," we suggest you spend your day doing so. And then follow that up with her new EP "Broke Royalty," just released on Friday. To celebrate, Eastwood, whose real name is Jax Anderson, will be throwing a performance party at the city's landmark Fisher Building, which, to the Detroit-based indie musician, is a pretty big deal. Her spring tour continues through the summer, where you can see her (and the songstress's signature red hat — more on that later) at the usual music festival circuit locales, including Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Summerfest and the second weekend of Electric Forest Festival. If you plan to hit up any of these up, grab some nicely-designed Flint Eastwood merch beforehand, too.

According to Refinery29, Grace Mitchell's voice is reminiscent of a "'90s grunge goddess," and that's totally true. The 19-year-old Portland native's single "Kids (Aint' All Right)" makes us nostalgic for the gritty music scene that we all know and love. But don't put this genre-bending singer in a box, her latest music video for "Now" is an '80s-leaning pop hit. Mitchell's upcoming music festival appearances include Coachella, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.

New York-based Honey Dijon has been fashion's go-to DJ for years; designers Kim Jones of Louis Vuitton seek her house music prowess for runway show soundtracks and party playlists. (Currently, we have her latest mix for Louis Vuitton's Fall 2017 men's runway show on repeat.) Do not miss this one at Coachella.

Indie rock-folk singer and songwriter Lucy Dacus, from Richmond, VA, dropped out of film school to pursue a career in music, and we must admit that she's made the right choice. Her debut album "No Burden" immediately sold out on vinyl and attracted the folks at Matador Records, who signed her onto the label last year. Check out Dacus at Bonnaroo, Seattle's Capitol Hill Block Party, Boston Calling, Pickathon in Oregon and the Forecastle Festival in Louisville.

New York-based Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern made their debut as Sofi Tukker with their EP "Soft Animals" in 2016. You may recognize their Grammy-nominated track "Drinkee" from an Apple Watch commercial, or their newly released singles "Greed" and "Johny," which just got the remix treatment from DJ/producer Moon Boots. Catch Sofi Tukker at Coachella on Sunday (both weekends) at 1 p.m. We have a feeling you won’t be able to sit still in the presence of this dance-worthy duo.
