    That was very cool. I remember standing there thinking that it was a total Coachella moment.

    Madonna was on Sunday, silly. Daft Punk played Saturday night in 2006.

    It is also a fact that madonne played 15 songs over 90 minutes. And Bjork joined her for a duet on Bedtime stories.

    I was about 7 rows from the front (where the right dance circle went down during Perfect Crime) with some 5 of my best friends (whom love Decemberists as much as I do) and we absolutely sung and danced our hearts out at sunset.
    That's when Coachella hooked me.

    I'm pretty sure everyone else on the Polo fields that night shares this sentiment. That was an amazing moment.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    not necessarily unreal, just amazing

    99:
    - seeing some band nobody knew called a perfect circle open the main stage with at best a couple hundred people watching
    - watching at the drive in play around 3pm in the 105 or whatever heat, wearing jeans, all black, jumping around like it was nothing. i was dying in the shade
    - morrissey playing meat is murder, stage lights all red, i had a headache so bad i thought i was going to die. his whole set had a lot of intense songs i'd never heard (the teachers are afraid, november spawned a monster)
    - perry farrel during sunset. it felt like everyone on the field just let out a collective "ahhhhhhhh!" as soon as the sun was over the mountains. the first magic hour

    04:
    - the pixies. is this really happening?
    - radiohead
    - kraftwerk
    - belle and sebastian
    - after missing most of the flaming lips, making it back in time for the yoshimi sing along

    06:
    - sigur ros at sunset
    - daft punk
    - depeche mode opening their set with "a pain that i'm used to". i was in the food area and all the sudden heard this loud sirenish sound that was the beginning of the song. it felt like it was echoing across the entire coachella valley

    07:
    - interpol opening with the then unreleased "pioneer to the falls" and me being completely blown away by it
    - arcade fire
    - seeing kings of leon and having never heard them before. mcfearless almost made my head explode

    08:
    - THERE WAS A FUCKING AIRPLANE!
    - and the rest of roger waters set
    - portishead
    - first time seeing the light towers MOVE!
    - hearing my morning jacket for the first time during sunset and being blown away
    - MGMT "time to pretend". we got there late the first day so the whole evening kinda felt like "are we really here"? saturday seeing mgmt play this song, it felt like we had finally arrived. as played out as the song may be it always makes me think of that moment, where i was standing, how happy everyone was, the breeze, the heat, everything, it was so beautiful
    - SWEEEEET CAROLINE! BAH BAH BAH!
    i'll never forget that. everyone knew the weekend was almost over and to have that last moment of unity before the last act of the year, cant explain it


    so many more but those are some of the highlights that come to mind

    My first year was 2005, so for me some unreal moments would be...

    2005 - Perfect view of New Order and Nine Inch Nails, both of which I never thought I'd see let alone back to back. One of the best 2-3 hours of my life.

    2006 - The Section Quartet was the PERFECT way to start the day. Laying in the grass, soaking up the sun and the atmosphere, listening to a beautiful string section playing kick ass covers. On Sunday, Mogwai was a completely unreal moment for me. They were amazing and I got right up close since every dipshit in the festival was over seeing Madonna.

    2007 - Peeping Tom! Mike Patton can do no wrong. Butterscotch was amazing as well. Explosions in the Sky. Every time I see EITS, they move me almost to tears.

    2008 - Roger Waters - The violin player he had melted my face with her solos. Jack White melted my face with his solos. Holy Fuck completely melted my face. The needle nose solo during Portishead's set melted my face. Battles, Austin TV, Mum all destroyed what was left of my face. 2008 was by far the best year for me.

    2009 - Who knows. We shall see...
    I love music, and I hate vowels.

    07: My first music festival, I was amazed how chill people were. Hot Chip's set blew me away
    08: Winning free tickets, sweet caroline sing-a-long, Aphex Twin, seeing 3/4s of SOAD, Portishead, Flogging Molly, Roger Water's playing Set the Control's for the Heart of the Sun

    I would say seeing sigur ros than seeing daft punk. And just walking around and having huge artists walk right past your or stop right next to you. Last year I was leaning against this fence and erol just walks up and leans right next to me
