The best alternative to Coachella? Ironically, it comes from the music festival’s own promoter. Each spring Goldenvoice plucks some of the sub-headliner acts into two weeks of club and theater shows across L.A., and a few a bit beyond.

At this year’s local Coachella shows—affectionately known as Localchella, officially and boringly billed as “Goldenvoice Presents April”—Future Islands, Nicolas Jaar, Röyksopp, New Order, Floating Points, Local Natives, Little Dragon, Jamie xx, Empire of the Sun, the Avalanches and more have all been tapped for local shows. And by local, we mean everywhere from Pappy & Harriet’s to the Santa Barbara Bowl, with spots like the Roxy and the Regent in between.

Tickets are already on sale for a couple of shows, but there are three major on-sale dates to keep in mind: February 17, February 24 and March 3. You’ll find the corresponding on-sale dates below.

As in past years, some shows are being promoted under the FYF Presents banner—lest you forget that Goldenvoice’s hometown fest has moved up to July this year. 

In the meantime, here’s the full list of shows in a much more searchable format for your pleasure.
