ICYMI, the lineup for Coachella 2017 was officially released this morning and it's pretty bloody good.

It also features seven Australian acts everyone should really know about, even if you're not going to make it to the festival.

1. The Avalanches

Everyone was super hype when The Avalanches made their 2016 return, 16 years after releasing their first album, Since I Left You. Honestly, there's no arguing with the fact that listening to "Frontier Psychiatrist" at a festival would be wild.

2. Anna Lunoe

You might know her best from her track "I Met You" with Flume, but there's so much more to love from Anna Lunoe. This isn't her first Coachella set either, so you know it's going to be fire.

3. Empire of the Sun

While their 2016 album, Two Vines, is a great listen, there's just no beating the iconic bangers that are on Walking on a Dream, particularly the album's namesake "Walking on a Dream" and "We are the People".


4. What So Not

Once a collaboration that included Flume, What So Not is now the solo project of Sydney producer, Emoh Instead. For good electronic dance vibes, give his stuff a listen.

5. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

First of all, this Melbourne band has got to have one of the best names in the whole goddamn lineup. After winning hearts big time at last year's Splendour in the Grass, they're taking things to the next level and doing Coachella for the first time.

6. Pond

Hailing from Perth, Pond started as an ~ego-free collaboration~, including some members of Tame Impala, in which Pond's frontman, Nick Allbrook, played for five years. Pond are experimental and a whole lot of fun.

7. Jagwar Ma

This Sydney band's latest album is called Every Now and Then, and is just as good as their very memorable 2013 release, Howlin'.
