    If I had seen Daft Punk at Coachella I would have picked them, but I missed them and saw them at Red Rocks..so for me it is a 3 way tie between Sigur Ros 2001, Radiohead and Bjork 2007. DECLARE INDEPENDENCE!!

    What did Sigur Ros play in 2001? Wasn't that their first American gig? I can't believe all those lucky Europeans got to see them open for Radiohead.

    YES!! I can say I was there for their 1st US/North American gig ever!! I had no idea what I had walked into but saw them based on a review that Thom Yorke did on their second album...It was probably similar to what people experienced with Daft Punk's show...it hit me like a tons of bricks and life wasn't the same after that...it was also my 1st Coachella and first music festival ever...been going ever year since and will be until the day I die...

    this poll is biased. Daft Punk is in all caps, while the others are not.

    please redo this.

    regardless, it makes the poll biased.

    and the acts should be listed alphabetically. i guess boourns just isn't cut out to be a pollster.

    Maybe your free will is pathetic enough to crumble before all caps, but that doesn't mean the same is true for everyone else.

    I voted Pixies, and putting Daft Punk first and in caps gives it a biased advantage I think, also Sigur Ros in 2006 is the performance in the poll not 2001. Also, which Tool and Rage performances are we voting on? 1999? 2006? 2007? Bjork too, 2002 or 2007? Arcade Fire same sceneraio, 2005 or 2007. And Underworld 1999, or 2003?

    Well, there's only 10 choices allowed and if you don't enter them all within one minute, you lose the poll option. I've started polls before that didn't have...polls because it took too long to enter all the data. So no years. I guess either/or.

    And I didn't even vote for Daft Punk.

    I had to go for Arcade Fire (2005) as it was the first time i'd seen them and they were truly amazing. Daft Punk probably would have won had i not seen them before.

    Thanks for picking artists that have performed multiple times without actually discerning which performances you are talking about.

    You win.

    But the Sigur Ros 2001 is far superior even without Hafsol..

    the beginning of the pixies' "where is my mind" really stands out. the sound of everyone singing along to the beginning "woo-oooo" was hauntingly beautiful. i love busting out the live cd i bought that night of the show from disclive.

    and being there ... 2004 was so effin' hot ... they came on at what, 7:30 or so .... it was just starting to cool down and get really comfortable, probably in the high 80s (compared to 105 or so at 3 pm) ... the sky was absolutely ridiculous, all purple & pink, best sunset of the 5 years I've been going ... by far my best Coachella moment when they played.

    Seeing as how maybe a dozen people on this board out of thousands were actually around for Coachella 1999, years really don't matter.

    i got the raddest shot from the vip section while they played! i used photo stitch on my camera and created an awesome panoramic shot from vip/left of stage all the way to the back of the crowd back by the entrance to the venue. got it printed out and mounted on foamcore, 6 feet wide and 8 inches high. looks amazing on my music wall.

    I disagree. If the poll says best ACTUAL performance then one shouldn't leave out certain years just because there were less people early on.
