My first year at Coachella was the second day of 2004 and I am bummed I missed some of the great performances in the early years of coachella. What are some of the performances you regret missing?
Most notably Bright eyes, moving units, the rapture in 2004. The first time Interpol, The Mars Volta and Saves the Day played.
I also missed Amy Winehouse which I deeply regret.

I regret seeing the Chili Peppers in 07 instead of LCD Soundsystem. LCD blew me away opening for Arcade Fire at the bowl a few months later and I can't get enough of them. I also made the mistake of watchng the train wreck that was Madonna instead of Mogwai, caught the end of their set and it was amazing. Finally, I was too narrow minded earlier in my life to catch barely any of the early years in the Sahara tent. Daft Punk 06 changed my life and my Coachella priorities forever!!

I missed all the Institubes guys last year, and M.I.A. a few years back. Oh yeah, and MGMT. I tend to catch most of the acts I set out to see.

I wish I remembered more of '02 and '03.

Last year, I missed MGMT and Hot Chip because ... I have no good excuse. I'm still bitter about it and I've learned to fly solo to shows that I want to see.

I missed out on a bit of Les Savy Fav last year, caught enough but ... :(
Missed a lot of Fatboy Slim, missed out on the cool kids and Holy Fuck.

Otherwise I don't have many regrets..
that said, Vegoose 2007 made up for A LOT of my not being able to go to Coachella regrets...

I wouldve liked to see Benny Benassi in 07 instead of watchin Peaches, she was ok but i saw Benassi at EDC in 08 and he was alot of fun! I wouldve also liked to see Amy Winehouse's set but i watched Stephen Marley & got really high instead, which was nice but i really like Amy's album. I also wish i wouldve known more about MSTRKRFT then & gone and seen them instead of Peter Bjorn & John!! I missed SOulwax & love them now, but against Me was pretty damb good. & I missed Teddybears to get a decent spot for Rage.
As far as 08 goes i pretty much saw everyone except on Saturday i couldnt get up early enough to go see Kavinsky

I regret missing the Raconteurs or Goldfrapp. Even though I'm happy to say I have seen Goldfrapp, I thought sound issues were kind of bad, and I had to leave early anyway to get a good spot for Aphex.

I missed most of LCD Soundsystem in 2007 because I couldn't get through the RHCP crowd after Arcade Fire.

I did catch the last song they did, 'New York I love you', though, and it was fucking great.

I also regret only staying for four or five Rapture songs

She held it together well for her last Coachella appearance. Hopefully she can do it again 'cuz it's a good show.

Every year I miss one act that I REALLY REALLY wanted to see, at least--mostly because I have slept in too late at the hotel (whoops) and we don't get there until about 2 or so.

2008 - Kavinsky, most of Hot Chip, Mark Ronson
2007 - Kaiser Chiefs AND Arctic Monkeys (still majorly kicking myself here)
2006 - Art Brut
2005 - Perry Farrell in the Sahara
2004 - Kraftwerk, The Crystal Method

I got separated from my friends during a crazy shroom trip and I got freaked out during M.I.A.'s set (i thought i was to blame for the sound problems/ everybody kept looking at me) and I then accidentally walked out of Coachella right before Portishead. It was only until people started asking me if I had an extra ticket did I realize that I had left the venue. "An extra ticket to what? We're already inside!...oh crap."

In the shadows of parking lot I tried to make a nest from the contents of my pockets, including my wallet. After realizing that I had a camping spot with a comfy sleeping bag I ditched my "bed", and missed out on going with the Dirty Hands Caravan.

this year will be my first and i'm sure that i'll miss something i want to see on saturday, due to my desire to see band of horses, fleet foxes, and TV on the Radio in addition to surkin, bloody beetroots, hercules and love affair.. just seems like at least one of the rock and one of the dance acts are going to be playing at the same times.
