Unless you’ve been living on the moon (which would be totally cool, by the way), you’ve probably caught wind of the newly-announced Coachella 2015 lineup. Since we’ve had less than 24 hours to process this news, we’re still trying to wrap our heads around this massive list of superstars. And now, we just got word that passes sold out in a record 40 minutes today. What is this madness?!

If you were lucky enough to snag a pass to the festival, taking place over two weekends in April in the Coachella valley, you will see ALL the music. Seriously, this year’s line-up has everyone, ever. But rather than read the fine print on the flyer (why are they still doing that big-font-to-small-font thing?), let’s break these artists out in an easier-to-digest format. Here’s who’s performing—from the super-famous to the super-duper-famous.

The big-ticket headliners
Maybe you’ve heard of them?

Jack White
Drake
Florence and the Machine
Belle and Sebastian
Interpol
Ryan Adams

The “wait, WHAT?!” (in a good way) performers
These folks are equal parts unexpected AND huge. I guess their prominence adds to the surprise factor, right?

AC/DC
Steely Dan
Raekwon and Ghostface Killah

The exciting newcomers (that aren’t all THAT new)

These are the people you know, love and sing along to in your room. “If only everyone else knew about them,” you say…

FKA Twigs
Azealia Banks
St. Vincent
Tycho
Chet Faker
SBTRKT
Alabama Shakes
Caribou
Marina and the Diamonds
Stromae
Toro y Moi
Glass Animals
Gesaffelstein
Fitz and the Tantrums
RAC
Lykki Li
Flying Lotus
Ryan Hemsworth
Martin Sloveig

The breakout performance forecast
We think they’ll be leaving with more than a few new fans.
