    06 - When they dropped the curtain for Daft Punk I pretty much lost my mind

    07 - Ghostface -> Justice -> LCD Soundsystem was so amazing

    08 - Aphex Twin and Roger Waters both made me go "WHAT THE FUCK" in the best way possible.

    My only Coachella experience was in it self the most "unreal" experience I have ever had. I wish I could afford to go back, but living in Winnipeg, Canada it is difficult to get the time off/pay for the plane tickets.

    The way it went down was like this. Spring of 2007 I had a few extra bucks kicking around so after many of years of planning, I finally went to Coachella. First day had a blast and saw some amazing acts. Friday night Bjork was the top of my list, and I ended up getting quite close to the front. Unfortunately I was almost squished to death and had to be pulled out by security. Once I finally got out, I realized I had lost my passport/cell/other two weekend tickets (in hindsight it was stupid to have them on me, but I didn't know if I could trust leaving them in the tent). Not knowing what to do I asked the first man backstage for help (yes, for some reason security pushed me back stage). Turns out it was the stage coordinator for the festival. Being the swell guy he was he took me back to the office, and told me they would do the best to get my stuff back. Since there was nothing he could do at the time, he let me watch the rest of Bjork from the side of the stage. Afterwards, he gave me a wristband which he said would get me back into the festival encase I didn't find my tickets. Long story short, it was an artist wristband. Miraculously, after the show they sent out a search crew and found my stuff amongst the rubble. The rest of the weekend was history. I was able to go from stage to stage as I pleased, watch bands from the side viewing area, and met a lot of amazing people. I never got to thank them properly, but if any of you are reading this I just want to say thanks for one of the best weekends of my life! The crew who organize Coachella are the real unsung hero's of this festival. They are an amazing group of people.

    -Buck 65 was a real nice surprise. Only time I bought a CD at Coachella was his.

    2006
    -Daft Punk. Close Encounters theme gave me chills.
    -Yeah Yeah Yeahs made me fan.

    2007
    -Interpol. Somebody already mentioned Pioneer to the Falls and I agree that it was amazing.

    2004
    After sitting in traffic all day, it fet so good to finally get to dance my ass off non stop with all of my friends to Basement Jaxx and the Crystal Method. Then cooled it down nicely with the closing set of the Cure. Stayed at an awesome house and watched the moon most of the night in the hot tub.

    2005
    Me and my sister playing with the Dragonfly sculpture that sprayed water everywhere. Watching Rilo Kiley for the first time, not knowing who they were and falling in love with Jenny Lewis.

    2006
    Shrooming like crazy for My Morning Jacket at Sunset, Franz Ferdinand, and Daft Punk dancing nonstop the entire time!! I couldn't stop dancing!!!

    2007
    Falling in love with Arctic Monkeys. Being able to hang out with so many different groups of friends that I've known for years all day long and seeing different acts with them. Everything was just in sync that year. Being in the very front against the Gate for Bjork with two of my friends that survived. Running back and forth between the Rapture and the Good, the Bad, and the Queen several times. It wore me out but I refused to give in to the time conflict haha. Staying at that awesome time share for the first time.

    2008
    Kicked it off with an awesome Filter Pre-party that I will never forget. Does it Offend You, was insane. Being blown away by Cold War Kids on Saturday. Got to see two of my favorite bands, Hot Chip, and then Rilo Kiley, like a dream come true. Getting to see Portishead with my boyfriend. Moshing and dancing around at Flogging Molly!!!

    It was about the Hell we had all gone through, the wrong turns we had made and the shit that we had all stepped in that brought us all together in the Sahara tent that night.
    You see, it had been a long time since I had seen my daughter.
    As the lights came on, there she was.
    Good times.....
    I'll never forget that night...
    oh man i never knew that song was the one they played when they turned the lights on
