    obviously, unless you hate electro, try to see justice (although theyll probably be up against roger waters and gogol bordello, both of whom are awesome live too)

    as far as smaller acts go, man man and holy fuck are both awesome. check em out.

    Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip - HIGHLY recommended! They play quite a lot round where i live (east end of London) and they put on a fucking crazy arse show with some great songs

    Try 'Thou Shalt Always Kill' or 'The Beat That My Heart Skipped' from their MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/lesacvspip

    If you liked Rage and RHCP (and if you also like Tool) you'd probably like these bands:

    Roger Waters
    Flogging Molly
    Dredg
    Enter Shakari
    Rogue Wave
    Slightly Stoopid
    The Breeders


    but i'm gonna tell you (and everyone else) to go see:
    Jack Johnson
    Death Cab For Cutie
    My Morning Jacket


    hehe

    Hey there

    Les Savy Fav are an excellent live act too.
    Bonde do Role are pretty awesome if you like brazilian punk hip hop.
    Battles are quite impressive. So are Holy F*ck.
    Turbonegro is great fun, as well as Gogol Bordello.
    Spiritualized is fantastic in a very Pink Floydesque way.

    This mean speaks the truth. If you plan on missing Madness or Kraftwerk, you might awell not even attend Coachella.
    I will also add Portishead to the list. They don't have any US dates scheduled in the future. This may very well be your only chance.

    Gogol Bordello will not be up against Roger Waters. They were against Bjork last year and A LOT of people were upset they had to miss Gogol for Bjork, especially after hearing how amazing they were. Im guessing Gogol will have an late afternoon/early evening set at the Outdoor Theatre.
    With that being said, Justice playing against Roger Waters would make a lot of sense.

    In summary do NOT miss Gogol Bordello.

    Talking Re: First Year Going To Coachella....Bands I Should not miss all 3 days.

    Do NOT miss:
    TurboNegro
    Gogol Bordello
    The Horrors
    The Verve
    All four put on spectacular performances, especially Turbonegro, The Horrors, and Gogol Bordello

    Other bands not to miss:
    Madness
    Portishead
    Kraftwerk
    Love & Rockets
    Spiritulized
    Roger Waters
    The Bees
    VHS or Beta
    Black Mountain
    AutoLux
    Sandra Collins
    Justice
    Junkie XL
    Hot Chip

    I am sure there are many others I could add to this list in the months leading up to Coachella, but it's gonna be hard enough to see everything that you want to with the scheduling so just have fun!

    it is really impossible to 'go see' all the bands. once you get there, let the festival take you around and soon enough, it will be day three and all those experiences will just fly by. hence everyone getting uber excited about the next year and the next year... etc.

    cuz i find if you have too strict of schedule you are just losing out on the rest of what the festival has to offer

    Yes & no. I had a pretty tight schedule last year for myself and enjoyed every minute of it. I was solo though and didn't have to consider anyone else.

    Hot Chip was awesome last year. I figure this year they will play later than last year which will be nice cuz it must have been 120 degrees in that tent.
