    Gogol Bordello @ Coachella is the best show I have ever seen. I have seen Gogol twice since then. Vegoose was one of them. They certainly did kick ass at Vegoose, but nowhere near the extent they did at Coachella. Sorry you missed it.

    In all fairness, most Depeche Mode fans think that really wasn't thier best performance. As well... the mystery behind Daft Punk pulled a lot of people away from Depeche Mode.

    It's funny because Depeche Mode was way higher on my "bands to see" list than Daft Punk.

    If I had went to Coachella 06... I probably would have stayed for all of Depeche Mode, then casually walked over to Daft Punk. Only to have my mind blown...
    Goddamn do I wish I had gone to 06.

    Yeah dude, it was an amazing year. That was actually my original plan, but I got bored and impatient. For the last 20 minutes or so I was really just sticking around to hear "Enjoy the Silence" but apparently it was played about 5 minutes after I gave up to get a spot for Daft Punk.

    Bauhaus was great. Some of the Coldplay fans in the audience were annoying though, and I really like Coldplay.

    Depeche Mode was the only headliner we waited all day to see just to leave to watch from the back after a few songs...

    But 06 was a great year also.
    Haven't missed one since.
    Maybe Prodigy should have been added to the poll?

    I concur that 99 was and will always be the best year. I look at that lineup today and it still blows my mind that it actually happened.

    The Pixies!!! W/ RadioHead a very close 2nd. Come on people!!! The Pixies. Anyone else, doesn't even compare. With the Pixies, one hears the music comming from their souls, not from some electronic do-dads & keyboards & samples of other artists talent. The Pixies are RAW with it!!! Raunchy!!! And yes, SEXY!!! Want proof? Ask Radiohead, Blur, David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, PJ Harvey, etc, etc..

    It's kind of confusing to me that you could have this poll, yet not include Faithless, which was, by far and away, the best Coachella perfoemance ever...

    Yup 99 was a masterpiece, a legendary indulgence.

    I simply was not able to watch a single act all the way through for having to run to another stage or tent to catch a part of some other amazing acts set.
    Total synapse overload.

    Having said that, the greatest act I have witnessed at Coachella (or ever really) has to be Daft Punk.

    I feel EXACTLY the same way. Only 2007 was my first Coachella/music festival ever (I am 16), and instead of Sigur Ros I felt it with Arcade Fire. I had listened to Rebellion a couple times and that's it when I saw them, I can honestly say my life was changed by that performance. It was just like something inside me broke and I felt more alive than I ever had. My taste in music as well as personal shit just totally shifted after Coachella, for the better, and that Arcade Fire performance was the real turning point.

    Don't know why I'm sharing this, lol.

    HAYSOOS what I would have given to see daft punk and arcade fire at coachella. I'm stuck with dvd clips and tales of the "life changing experience" that my friends had during daft punk. Someday.

    Ya know... There's a lot of talk on these threads about how great Radiohead is...I am a huge fan as well...so why are they not ranked as high as they are praised? Just an observation...
