So this thread is about the time at coachella when you felt the hand of god descend upon you. first 2 examples -
- Roger Water's Dark side of the moon set

Thom Yorke's solo, acoustic version of "Airbag" with the voice box, as the crowd was dead silent in awe and the warm Coachella breeze brushed over the polo fields and the palm trees fluttered as purple silhouettes.

Nice! i have to add MSTRKRFT's first time at coachella, when they played during the day. They played some dj dan songs and it made me sublimely happy.

Daft Punk's 2006 set, Definitely Leonard Cohen (that was something extraordinary), and seriously...Girl Talk's 2009 set , it hit me so hard I almost started crying with joy. It was the exact moment I was 'touched'. and not inappropriately either : )

Gotta go with Vic Viper. I really didn't know the stuff at all, and was just wandering from stage to stage when I came upon her set. Only it wasn't like God's hand just came down to pat me on the back, more like molested me and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

My Bloody Valentine's sonic holocaust. I felt like my soul was going to explode through my stomach.

Ladytron's "Playgirl"

the Verve's "This is Music"

All of those I never thought I'd hear live, so that had something to do with the feeling.

And the crowd caused one such moment.

The part in Radiohead's "No Surprises" where Thom sang "bring down the government... they don't... they don't speak for us" and the crowd goes absolutely batshit crazy, as if we were all picking up torches to go hunt down some crooked people in office. Goosebumps doesn't begin to cover it.

All of these are most excellent and I wholeheartedly agree so much I'm giving you all an e-highfive at the moment.

I saw the devil during Sasha.

But I think if I was there in 2008,

then I would have most definitely felt the hand of God during Portishead's Machine Gun (word to weezy f baby)

i feel like my response is out of place... and i will most likely catch shit for this.

when the sahara lit up red and bassnectar played where is my mind right after the sun went down, it was surreal.

honorable mentions:

when the chemical brothers took the stage and the bass hit for the first time, i felt like god punched through my chest and ripped my heart out.

God touched me gently in Untitled, and then things got a little weird with him during Animal Collective, he was definitely around there though

God hand? For Fever Ray, it was more like the cold, cruel tentacles of Cthulhu or Xenu.

Time lost any and all meaning during this set for me, so I can't pick a single Fever Ray moment.
