    Default What was your biggest dissapointment of past years?

    Last year, it was no metal water bottles for me! Small thing, but isn't it the little things that matter
    Coachella 2006, 2007, 2009, and coming soon: 2010

    prolly attempting to see Madonna live, but resigned to watching an outdoor monitor feed of the performance while still fighting to see what was going on onscreen. And Im 6'2" for Christs sake. What a waste of time that was.

    2003 was the last one I went to. The big crowd can be irritating to an extent, but it's not disappointing to me because it's a sign that it's doing well and should continue to thrive for several years.

    The cancelations. Wilco, Doves, the Cocteau Twins, the Subways, the Streets, the Bees, the Field, Glasvegas.... All heartbreakers. But Wilco did make up for it later.

    It's hard to be dissatisfied with anything that actually happens there, I mean it's like complaining that the couches in heaven are too soft.

    Although:

    yeah that was pretty lame. We felt like we were watching someone play with legos a half mile away during that set.

    The bathrooms are always the most disappointing thing for me. They are filthy and way too hot. You wait in line to pee and walk in and there some jerk before you exploded all over the place. Why is it so hard to make it into the toilet.

    i'm still sad about missing muse & le tigre in 2004, even though i felt justified in seeing both adam freeland & the cure.

    and if that's my biggest disappointment, GV is doing something right

    -Red Hot Chili Peppers performance in '07....it just didnt do it for me despite being a RHCP fan.

    -Missing '08 therefore missing Portishead.

    -Learning about Coachella in '07, therefore missing Daft Punk's historic performance.

    Madona is one and the other that comes to mind.........My Bloody Valentine. I know that there are alot of MBV fans, who thought MBV was great, but It was not. It was crap!

    Going with the wrong people in 07. I flew out and we camped in J tree. We missed the first day completely because the girl with the car didn't know any of the bands. On sat/sun we arrived no earlier than 3pm. For over 1,000$ spent on the trip it was a total waste.

    Morrissey was a little disapponting, although "How soon is now?" at the end was really good.

    But Thievery Corporation were a great find...amazing performance...we've been enjoying them ever since...

    and after Crookers last year the Chemical Brothers seemed kinda.....boring. Maybe it was just me, but that was the first time I saw them live and I really expected more.

    oh, and not finding out about coachella until '07, that really is the most disappointing thing.
    I just want something good to die for, to make it beautiful to live

    A couple years I have waited too long to buy a Coachella tshirt and had to settle for the leftovers that didn't sellout. This year I will focus and make my purchases on Friday. I recommend anyone set on purchasing a particular design follow my example.

    You really think that they didn't recover? I thought the last half of the set was awesome, and they got back on track right up to the end. I did feel bad for Jason and company up there during that first half, however... twas brutal.

    Now BRMC in 2004, THAT was a horrible expedition of sound problems the whole way through. Ugh!

    these are good ones, the MGMT show in '08 that I attempted to watch comes to mind as well. I bailed like 5 minutes into the show because it was so crowded and all the neon wearing 15 year olds made me uncomfortable.

    July 21- Soundgarden- Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
    July 30- Rage Against the Machine/Muse- LA Coliseum
    Oct 21- Portishead- Berkeley Greek
    Nov 18- Pixies- Fox Theater Bakersfield

    I liked MIA's performance last year. But it could have been the drugs. Either way, one of the highlights for me.
