    Default Atoms For Peace Just Ripped Coachella's Head Off

    Srsly. Fuckin' Gorillaz was the definition of anticlimactic after that stellar show.

    I'm with you on this. Atoms For Peace was without a doubt my set of the day. Thom and the boys fucking killed it.
    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

    Absolutely. Disappointed by Gorillaz and Pavement. AFP were awesome. Among my favorites of the weekend (xx, specials, florence & the machine and muse were a few others that come to mind).

    Today was a fantastic day music wise (don't get me started on the people). Atoms for Peace stole the entirety of Coachella for me followed closely by LCD Soundsystem. Jonsi into Phoenix into Atoms for Peace was phenomenal (and I wasn't a huge Phoenix fan), even if I had to be in a pit-like atmosphere for over four hours to see them all up close.

    I took some amazing photos/videos at nearly every outdoor theater act today, so look for those soon.

    Was at the rail for it, it was absolutely brilliant. I also enjoyed looking over to my right and seeing that Matthew Bellamy was sitting in the photo pit watching Thom Yorke.

    Oh, and to all you suckers who left before the nearly half-hour encore, thank you for clearing up all that space.

    I stayed away from the Main & Outdoor stages this year - except for B.o.B. There were just too many people for my world. And as far as the acts, was there a Prince or a Portishead this year? Was there a flying pig? BTW - Muse did headline. They just weren't top billing.

    Yorke and Pavement should have been switched. Wayyy too many people at the Outdoor Stage for that set. I couldn't get anywhere near it. I mean I could barely see the video boards I was so far back. And just before, Pavement on the main stage was half empty.

    Poor Pavement, they're not even sub headliners. At least not with this crowd.

    so true, although I was stoked to see them so close up, even if that meant waiting through Jonsi and Phoenix. But yeah, they def. should of been switched. GV is slippin

    Am I going deaf or is Thom losing his voice? Maybe he was having an off night? If anyone ripped coachella's head off it was Miike Snow.

    His voice at the start was off. His voiced sounded loads better in Oakland. But half way thru the Eraser it got loads better. Especially for the encore.

    Incredible show. I expected to see people streaming out to see the Gorillaz, but it seemed that hardly anyone left. How could they?

    Thom Yorke + Flea = Magic

    During the wait some of the crowd decided to pass the time by starting a singalong to Bohemian Rhapsody and Under The Bridge. I had no idea how big the crowd was until they showed it on the screen, it looks like it went all the way to the Gobi tent, at least.

    I agree completely, Thom killed... His was the performance I will remember when thinking of Coachella 2010...The energy on stage and in the crowd was amazing... It was the perfect end to Coachella 2010...

    Best set of the weekend for me. Pretty much the most mind blowing musical experience of my life. Being 10 yards from the stage probably helped as well. I feel bad for the two girls infront of me who left early to get a better spot for the Gorillaz... what a mediocre show to end the weekend.

    Thom Yorke, Muse and the Specials made the weekend for me. So God save the Queen I guess.
