April brings the return of Coachella, a six day music festival held in California.  This year brings some of the largest acts in music onto the stage, the Weeknd, Beyonce, Vince Staples, Diplo and more . . . way too many for one playlist.  

Music festivals make curating a playlist a bit easier.  The challenge comes in making it indoor cycling worthy.  Anyone can just pedal, music should make you pedal with purpose.  This playlist contains a three song circuit: Cadence, Intervals and a sprint.  

Following a warm-up, Kamasi Washington and the Neighborhood, each triumvirate of songs is a medley of cadence, then an interval (all out efforts followed by brief rest) and closing with a sprint.  Let the tempo of the beat push your legs and rock out to this Coachella playlist.

Benjamin Booker is the last sprint.  Then Cooldown with tracks from Sza, Portugal. The Man and the Weeknd -- then do it all again!
