    These aren't necessarily in order:
    Radiohead 04
    Arcade Fire 05 (and again in 07)
    Portishead 08
    Prince 08
    Roger Waters 08
    Flaming Lips 04
    Paul McCartney 09
    Justice 08
    Theivery Corperation 09
    The Cure 04

    Daft Punk 06 and Bjork 07 would have surely made the cut had I not sucked at life and missed them. Daft Punk I was just too late getting to the tent so I skipped it (lame) and I got extremely ill before Bjork's set and spend most of it passed out in first aid (even more lame).

    not in order, and obviously only from the years i have attended:

    Roger Waters 08 ridiculous production and one of my favorite bands in history
    Rage 07 the energy was so moving, i still get chills thinking about it
    My Bloody Valentine 09 took my mind to a dimension i didnt know about, and no drugs used
    Chemical Bros 09 showed up every other dj that weekend
    Bjork 07
    Aphex Twin 08
    and a random 4 that were simply amazing musically or just fun with the group i was with:
    friendly fires 09
    themselves 09
    cut copy 08
    gang gang dance 09

    i did this list real quick and i'm already feeling like i'm missing a lot,

    lcd 07
    mstrkrft 07
    arcade fire 07
    kraftwerk 08
    fuck me!! PORTISHEAD 08

    blah i'm no good at this

    Haha, sadly you are right. But this was after realizing there was no way I was getting in that tent. Not that I don't or didn't like she wants revenge, but come on, I missed Daft Punk.

    Any list that doesn't have Portishead in the top 3 is immediately disqualified.
    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

    if one has been to only 2 or 3 Coachellas, I could agree...

    but shit, after seeing so many bands there since '99, it's pretty difficult to crack the top 3
    '99-'11...

    Yeah, I've only been to 08 and 09 so they are easily my top pick. That post was just my way of being bitter about all of you that got to see the pyramid.

    the pyramid was very awesome (and imma let you finish) but co-a-chella 08 was the best co-a-chella of all time.
