    I've had the fortune of not seeing an honestly BAD performance so far. I only went to Friday on 09 and '10. I'd say the most disappointing was Camera Obscura and Gorillaz.

    I've only seen one bad performance in two full years - Charlotte Gainsbourg '10.

    Don't ask me why I chose to see her. Thankfully I left and caught the second half of Jonsi's performance, which was incredible.

    Whoever said Jesus and Mary Chain was anything but amazing just ruined the credibility of this thread.

    There was not one flaw to the performance, Great sound, the band was incredibly tight, the crowd got it. Yeah your right, that was really "boring" when Scarlett Johansson came up on stage and sung "Just Like Honey" with Jim Reid

    Really hated Bright Eyes in 2005. Very boring and I missed The Prodigy & Black Star for him. Ugh.

    Agree with Antony in 09 and La Roux last year. I was looking forward to both and left disappointed.

    I'm gonna have to say Steve Aoki. Although... I have never laughed harder at a Coachella set. Mr. Aoki attempting to crowd surf with an inflatable and then quickly the crowd dissipated around the area he tried to do it in was one of the most memorable experiences as a concert/festival to date.

    The Worst Acts I've experienced, one for every year I've attended*:

    Dan the Automator in '02 - Don't know what I was expecting, but he basically just played a cd player, or maybe it was a record player...not even a mix or a dj set.

    N.E.R.D. in '03 - Showed up way late, played 4 songs, shitty back up band.

    I can't recollect anything really bad in 2004.

    The Bravery in '05 - Walked by to take a listen, sounded horrible, the singer was so bad.

    Audio Bully's in '06 - Waiting for Daft Punk...was not in the mood for this, and I even liked a few songs of theirs back then.

    Happy Mondays in '07 - just a depressing mess, had to leave after ten minutes.

    MIA in '08 - Her appearance in '05 was fun, but this was just supremely annoying.

    Etienne de Crecy in '09 - The cube was the only highlight and that got old after ten minutes.

    Sly Stone in '10 - Didn't experience this first hand, but the youtube videos paint a dismal horrifying show.

    I've only been to '10, but Gorillaz was so disappointing. Not bad necessarily, just lackluster...Especially for the headliner of the entire weekend.

    MIA was the worst. Mondays were the biggest disappointment though. MGMT were not worth staying around for.

    Justice 2008 & TV on the Radio 2009 were bad. Morrissey was pretty bad in 2009 as well.

    Absolutely. I've tried to make it through 3 of her shows (Lolla 07, Coach 09, ACL 10) with an open mind and find myself sprinting in the opposite direction every time. Shame on me.

    MIA in 08 and 09
    Sly Stone
    Perry Farrell's lounge act in 08 was pretty miserable

    There's a lot of bands that were just kind of disappointing or bland or whatever, but those are the ones that jump out to me as embarrassingly bad.

    Total agreement!!! Did people expect a light show, dancing rabbits, pyro techniques et al... wrong band.

    Wonderful set list - saw them 4 times here and in the us on that re-union and each set was different but amazing in it's own way

    MGMT was so disappointing, and the vibe was so bad, that I threw up. They were a favorite of mine up until that performance and afterwards I couldn't listen to them for months.

    La Roux was horrible as well...I'm surprised no one has mentioned that one.

    MIA has been thrown around a lot for 09 and I agree. Dustin is right, "BER BER BERRRRRR" about sums it up. Crystal Castles was also a huge disappointment.

    Last year, Echo and the Bunnymen were awful awful awful.

    I don't understand how people say this was a bad set... I used to dislike the band alot, till I was on acid tripping my balls off...and I stumbled upon their set during electric feel and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

    How can you say TVoTR in '09 was bad? I thought it was a great show. Same with Justice '08...?

    Morrissey, gotta say, was just plain awful.
