    Deadmau5 was my personal fave. After that it was Sasha and Digweed, Pendulum, Aphex, FBS, Kavinsky for me. Other acts I either didn't see, didn't like, or didn't see enough of them to really say.
    Coachella is a place beyond conventional geography, a time not measured in hours or minutes, an experience, a state of mind, an attitude, and a holy form of expression. The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is an annual festival put on by Goldenvoice in Indio, CA. Please don't confuse the two.

    Justice; made it to the front row after showing up at 11 after Roger Waters. Damn what a good way to end Coachella.

    HOT CHIP was sooo great! My other favorites were Sebastian, Kavinsky and Midnight Juggernauts were tight as well. Sahara was nice this year, Hot Chip definitely was the best that I saw, so much fun, the crowd was really bumpin'!

    I call bullshit unless it was like, the absolute far left or right, or it was after pushing everybody in front of you out of their spots and you were front row for the last 1-2 songs or some shit.

    I figured he wouldn't get much votes. I heard a lot of negative response about his show from the crowd. I absolutely loved it, but since everybody was sucking dick over Pendulum I added them.

    Besides SebastiAn, those were my favorites of the Sahara. However, I'm pretty sure I enjoyed Battles more than I would have enjoyed SebastiAn. Maybe next time!

    Fat boy slim
    Pendulum
    Hot chip
    Justice

    Those four tore it down, plus during Justice the people climbing the rafters of the tent, and the security guard got them down.

    That's the stupidest thing I ever heard after Aphex rocked face I had to sit through the worst Sahara act ever (well maybe a tie with Audio Bullys) just to have my spot for Fatboy (who was good but not great). Everyone was saying how awesome they were and I was sitting there thinking to myself, "Whatever drugs these kids have I need cause this is utter shit."

    1. aphex twin (anyone who says otherwise needs to stop talking forever)
    2. hot chip (boys noize better? stop talking forever.)
    3. booka shade (finally some non generic ed banger music).

    justice and fatboy were good, in a "lets party" way, but nothing over the top special like the top 3.

    Cool Re: Best Sahara act of '08?

    All of Ed Banger crew with the exception of Uffie was on point
    [B]Fatboy Slim with his remix of Arcade Fire "'No Cars Go"
    Deadmau5 was too hot he had to shed the mouse hat
    Diplo very amazing

    amen... and hot chip and justice's sets were really good too, so that's sayin something. The one guy that isn't quite getting his due is the guy that played right before Boys Noize- James Zabiela. But Boys Noize by far was the best in the tent this weekend.

    ...

    I guess none of you saw Adam Freeland. He should be in the poll because he bought a show with him. He had a sick intro, had the crowd interaction going with the Obama sing along, had the text box with his setup. He and Aphex were the best DJs that I saw.

    James Zabiela and Deadmau5 were very good as well.

    Diplo is Girl Talk in disguise. Nothing impressive from him IMO. And his terrible mixing of Prodigy's SMBU, one of my favorite songs ever, pissed me off.

    Danny T had a sweet ending to his set, dropping LCD SS and a sweet mix of some classic REM - hearing everyone sing along to it was quite a magical experience

    Pendulum was awesome.

    Fatboy came on too late so I didnt get to see much of him, but what i did see was good. I'd love to see him again.

    Also, anyone who did NOT sample a daft punk track should get recognized as well. Seriously, does the ed banger crew realize that there are other artists out there to sample?
