    HIV positive? Proof positive that your significant other is sleeping with a biker gang? Positive isn't always good.

    If you werent at Happy Mondays in 2007, Im afraid your vote - however well thought out and intentioned - can really only count as 1/3 of a vote.

    MIA on the main stage due to her shitty sound effects and truncated set, BRMC due to technical problems, Morrisey due to him being a twat... All have been mentioned before and I agree.

    I actually didn't think MGMT was that bad last year. I'd heard how terrible they are live for a long time but I thought they were alright.
    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

    Sleighbells was pretty bad
    and knaan't showing up at all last year was pretty lame for those who waited 30 minutes for nothing
    Madonna's epic 4 song set that closed down coachella was definitely a close runner up to sleigh bells.
    Why sleigh bells? When you see the crowd run out like it's Godzilla coming for us and are equally confused with terrible pointless screaming, if that's not enough, let's discuss rap-metal theory.

    It wasn't even them really, I kind of had the notion that their performance wasn't going to differ too much from listening to the album, it was really the crowd that killed it for me, very boring.

    i got pretty lucky last year and saw only one set that i thought was bad and that was La Roux.... i think we were so far back that we could hear what she actually sounds like... my friend was just like "La RUDE" and walked away from her set... and so did myself and a few other people...

    Were any of you in the first 15 "rows" for any of these sets?

    Many sets suck way more when you're standing at the back.

    The Gotan Project in 2007 - it went over time which meant The Good The Bad And The Queen was even later then the midnight start they were slated for; they were boring and it the ongoing nature of it made it a very irritating set

    I'm surprised at this opinion of La Roux. It definitely wasn't amazing, but I thought it was a pretty good set.

    I agree with the negative reviews of MGMT. In general I think I've been wise/lucky enough to miss most of what I've heard were the worst performances at Coachella.

    this too. TGTBATQ were closing other dates with Guns of Brixton after playing their debut album end to end. They couldn't at coachella because they ran out of time. So glad I saw TGTBATQ instead of the Chile Peppers that year, really magical set.

    Agreed. I didn't get to see Sly last year, so this is still the worst performance that I've personally witnessed.

    It was all downhill after Tony Wilson's introduction.


    This was as good as it would get.

    Antony 2009. Tried all this new stuff not based on songs, had computer problems, tried to laugh it off by acting cute. I still love the Antony & the Johnsons albums, but that was a real let down.

    club 75. that shit was so boring. i could only put up with about 8 min of it, it wasn't even music, just a lot of high pitched sirens not synced to any kind of beat or anything. it just seemed like justice and friends trying to be cool and avant garde. MIA on the main stage was awesome though, even though she kind of did the same thing, i could kind of understand what she was going for.
    My girlfriend looks a little bit like Charlize Theron... and a lot like Dog the Bounty Hunter.

    THIS. As someone whose seen Echo multiple times it just seemed like they phoned in their performance. I left only a few songs in but even then, the Gobi was too packed to get in to see LaRoux.

    MSTRKRFT in 09. The first half hour was alright but they proceeded to trainwreck two mixes in a row, just sloppy offbeat mixing, you know when the beats sound like a horses hooves going "clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop" like really terrible. I had to leave the tent in disgust, went and checked out the end of Mastodon's set, I'm not even into metal but it was 1000x better than listening to MSTRKRFT embarass themselves at the biggest show they've ever played.

    EDIT: I'm a DJ so this sort of thing really jumps out at me. Most people had no complaints about the set...

    Runner-up would have to be Plastikman. I know it's minimal or whatever, but I've listened to lots of Richie's DJ sets and I loved the minimal house and minimal techno he usually plays. I guess that is what I was expecting, with such a crazy light setup I figured he would play an energetic set with music that, while minimal, would be good to dance to.

    The set he ended up performing could best be described as "Ambient Acid". what at first felt like an interesting intro/build turned into 30 minutes of squeeching, squelching, and sputtering that would pitter in and out of existence without ever building into anything that could be considered remotely akin to a "Beat". Absolutely no energy, I practically fell asleep on my feet before ditching to catch the end of Yorke.

    Morrissey (09) - Bitch bitch bitch about the smell of burning flesh
    Noah & The Whale - Only played their slow shit
    Liars - Sounded nothing like the album, just a guy growling into a mic
    The Horrors - Pissed because they had to compete with the Cure so they played only new shit, which sounded nothing like their old shit
    Fatboy Slim (09) - Played nothing recognizable
    Interpol (07) - Dead on stage as usual
    Jesus & Mary Chain - See above
    Madonna - 15 minute set, need I say more?
