As the sun rises on the Coachella Music and Arts Festival lineup, a quick survey of the extensive roster reveals a proud number of Los Angeles locals and adoptees. The lineup was released late last night and quickly threw the interweb into a frenzied state. Out of the commotion, one thing is certain, it is a good year to be a Los Angelino.

Here are five LA acts that you should support at this year's Coachella.

Anna Lunoe
Though hailing from The Land Down Under, Lunoe has since adopted Los Angeles as her music production turf. From original productions to collaborations with rising talents in the electronic music scene, Anna Lunoe has made her name a staple in the indie dance scene.

Dillon Francis
Best known for his moves in moombahton, this producer has since gone on to adapt a deep house alter-ego – DJ Hanzel. With a hilarious presence on YouTube and Twitter, Francis has made a name for himself as both an innovative producer and amateur comedian.

HAIM
Though deviating from the electro flavor, it would be nothing short of sin to leave the sisters HAIM from this list. These songstresses were catapulted into crossover appeal after having their indie-pop anthems remixed by Duke Dumont and the veteran Giorgio Moroder.

Poolside
They are the champions of daytime disco and stay true the genre's retro vibe. Listen to their hit tribute to Neil Young 'Harvest Moon' and find yourself dreaming of desert mirages after getting lost in the track's psychedelic - ode to acid house - interlude.

Classixx
After releasing their seminal album ‘Hanging Gardens’ just this year, these Los Angeles natives are finally getting the recognition they deserve. A whirlwind tour has had them open alongside electro-house star Zedd, converting disco disciples in their wake.
