    being my first coachella i didnt actually have many problems, i guess being dropped off by someone helped alot with fighting to traffic but other than waiting to get my wristband on friday it was amazing

    Worst Coachella for me. (Been going since 2004) Sunday was an epic bust. VIP was an epic bust. Overcrowding this year were an epic bust. Cancellations were an epic bust (but beyond GV's control). Sly Stone was beyond an epic fuckover. Regular delays in Mojave were an epic failure. The lack of volume for Florence & the Machine was a bust. Gorillaz were boring. AfP on the Outdoor Stage with huge crowds and tiny screens...FAIL. Coachella always used to run like clockwork. This year 15 minute delays were common (Fever Ray/Imogen Heap/PiL). And when the sets are only 50-minutes, that kills. And I could go on.
    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Hmmm. Not the best year at all. Fuck the camping this year. Only one shower section for THOUSANDS of campers!!!! An hour and a half to two hours for a freaking shower? Mindless incompetent fucktard Volunteers! You had better luck getting an honest and straight answer out of a crooked politician then out of the Volunteers! They knew absolutly nothing! hopefully next year will be better.

    Yes. Tiny. Was back near Do Lab and couldn't see sh*t. AFP should have been on Main Stage. Outdoor was a debacle.

    It was probably the 'worse' of six Coachella's for me. Still good, but not as good as other years.

    The sets ran on time this year, more than any year. The PiL and Fever Ray delays were deliberate (on PiL's part) and necessary (For Fever Ray).

    Am I the only one pissed off they didn't even say "Hey Coachella" or even "Thank You"? Personally i liked the music, but they pissed me off by not acknowledging the crowed at all.

    Another awesome Coachella. Thom Yorke fucking ruled. Muse rocked the shit. LCD Soundsystem was fun as hell. Great set from 2ManyDjs. Them Crooked Vultures were amazing. Great shows by Spoon and Phoenix. Gorrilaz was a perfect way to end the festival. I had such a good time with my friends.

    It was pretty unorganized at times, but I'm sure you first timers learned a lot. Even the vets learned from this one. If you wanted in, you got in. I knew about 7 or 8 people who made it in with no tickets. Get your tickets early next year, and find a good route into the parking lots. Camping sucked? Never camp.

    yes, this coachella was also worth it. there were PLENTY of incredible bands, even though the gorillaz set wasn't what we had all hoped for. people are just complaining because its over i think? i dont know. i've gone to four coachella festivals, and i can honestly say i had absolutely the best time this year. to those who were mad for having to wait in a line (which happens everywhere...) and those who weren't close enough to see blank, i'm sorry. you should just learn to relax and enjoy every aspect of the festival for what it is. maybe take a xanax?

    Clusterfuck, but still worth. The organization was totally lacking compare to other years, but I had a great time, as always.

    It was worth it if they figure out the problems from this year and fix them. If this is a sign of things to come, then I'm worried Coachella has lost it's magic and it might not be a must attend for me after attending since 1999.

    The music was great and I had a really good time, but the crowding, garbage and overall organizational flaws were pretty severe at times.

    This was my worst overall experience out of 11 Coachella Festivals.
