So much music. So little time. The 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns this weekend to the California desert community of Indio—and what an impressive slate of musical talent it is. Really, the only burning question is, how are you going to catch everything that’s worth seeing? Well, as luck would have it, we’ve got you covered. We’ve culled the massive three-day, six-stage roster, debated the finer points, and come up with our essential picks for this year’s premier music festival. Read on and rejoice!
Berlin’s Hard Wax is one of the most storied sellers of DJ vinyl on the planet—and with good reason: they count folks like Cassy, Modeselektor’s Gernot Bronsert, DJ Hell, and Marcel Dettmann as past employees, to start, and that’s to say nothing of the store’s founder, Basic Channel’s Mark Ernestus. Suffice it to say, if you’re in the market for techno records, Hard Wax is your spot. With Record Store Day just a week away, Mixmag took a deeper look at the store.
Yep, it’s time for another list, this one from the venerable DJ Mag, which has named its top 100 clubs from around the world. So what do you need to know offhand?

It seems these days that there are as many dance-music festivals around the world as there are dance-music artists. Every day a new one appears to crop up out of nowhere.

Fortunately, Magnetic is doing its part, and has shared a list of 20 “Life Changing EDM Festivals From Around the World.” So what makes the cut?
