Thread: Is Coachella the greatest music festival in the world???

    Default Is Coachella the greatest music festival in the world???

    In my opinion it is....I went in 07' and it was the three greatest days of my life (and I'm VERY pumped for this one). I been to other ones: Outlands Festival, Treasure Island Music Festival, Rock the Bells....and Coachella BLEW these out of the water. Granted I've never been to any of the epic European festivals such as Glastonbury; but I just can't imagine them being better than the utopia that is Coachella.

    ...........among all the things I've done in my entire life, the two things that just totally took my breath away were my Coachella 07' experience and watching the Beatles Love Cirque de Solei show in Vegas.

    I personally like Bonnaroo for the 4 days, the much longer sets and the latenight shows.

    Coachella is much nicer image wise and has picked out better headliners (although Muse is weak this year)

    If Bonnaroo had the Sahara tent it would be hands down Roo.

    If Coachella had late night sets it'd be hands down Coachella

    I am definitely a rookie by most standards of music festivals but I went to Coachella & Primavera Sound in Barcelona last year and Coachella won that comparison by a landslide.

    Having been to Coachella and most of the major European festivals, I have to say that the likes of Glastonbury, Reading, T In The Park, Benicassim are better in many ways. Glastonbury is like Burning Man and Coachella in one. It is huge! You can go an entire weekend and not listen to music. I doubt you could go to Coachella and do that.
    However, not to knock Coachella because it delivers a excellent, unique experience. The culture at Euro festivals is more relaxed-you aren't stuck in designated alcohol areas and more under 21's attend.
    Without doubt Coachella is the best music festival in California. The world? IMHO no!

    You haven't been to enough festivals to say the "best in the world" thing. You haven't even been to Roo or Lolla. Coachella does blow Outlands, Bells, and Treasure Island away.

    But best in the world? Probably not.

    Glastonbury from a pure line-up, amount of acts perspective is usually superior. Sure they usually have crappier weather, but from what they offer from as a whole festival experience, I think it's it's better. But you have to go to realize this.

    Same goes for Reading.

    No one in this thread is going to disagree with that. And yes 2007 was the best year ever!

    I disagree with that, and 2004/1999 were the best Coachellas.

    Greatest in the world? Guess that depends on where in the world you live....Most American's I know don't travel abroad to attend music festivals, but I hear the Sziget Festival in Obudai Island (off Hungarian coast) is a monster of a festival. One whole week! Now that's insane!

    Coachella is but a drive away, so of course my favorite.

    I cant say that it is the best in the world because i have never been to one of the euro festivals. I am not even sure I would want to go to one of the euro festivals.
    But of all the festivals I have attended Lolla 92, 94, 95 Coachella 04, 06, 08, 09 and Sasquatch 07 and Outsidelands 09 I would have to say Coachella is the best.

    Lollapalooza of the past were great but only one day made me want more.

    I love the 3-day coachella affair.

    So in my little mind it is the best and that is all that matters.

    This, and it's not just the headliners. Coachella always has a better lineup overall. The lack of a noise curfew (among other things) does make roo an exceptionally better festival experience.

    If I could sneak away from the old lady I'd probably go to Summer Sonic in Tokyo and/or Osaka and then skip across to Sziget (see my previous post). But that's more for the travel & cultural exploration & not so much the music as we do get more than 1/2 same/similar lineups as the other popular aforementioned festivals.

    Primavera Sound 2010 is the best festival lineup I've seen maybe ever. All the shit that people on here constantly wish for is on that poster.

    but Coachella isn't in spain.

    Therefore, yes, coachella is the best in the world for us continentally bound folk

    Are you serious?? That lineup isn't even half as good as our lineup....As a matter of fact that is one of the worst fesival lineups I might of ever seen...

    The only acts that festival has over ours is The Pixies and Pet Shop Boys, but we have SO MANY better artists.

    I think Primavera Sound is better for these reasons, very solid electronica lineup. Coachella is rather populist this year with their edm choices. And with their rock choices, come to think of it.. I hope next year coachella has more of an underground feel to it but those dreams went out the window with 2004 probably. Seems like coachella is the real Pitchfork Music Festival at times but they did good with some key exclusives this year. Either way it's a blast but why not analyze.
