    The Black Keys (1st half) -> The Ting Tings -> Franz Ferdinand -> NASA -> Ghostland Observatory -> Girl Talk -> The Presets -> 1st part of Crystal Method -> Paul McCartney

    Massive Attack into Tool was pretty epic.

    Kraftwerk into Portishead into Prince was cool too.

    Saturday of 2008 and it's not even close.
    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

    Sunday '09 was my favorite day for top to bottom action:

    Vivian Girls
    No Age
    Fucked Up
    Brian Jonestown Massacre
    Lykke Li
    Antony and the Johnsons
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    My Bloody Valentine
    The Orb
    The Kills
    Throbbing Gristle
    The Cure

    That actually looks like an incredible ATP lineup.

    Leonard - Moz - Sir Paul

    3 acts I'd waited 15 years to see all in a 5-6 hour block of time. For whatever reason Morrissey/McCartney won't play Western Canada.

    i will never be able to top the joy of 2009 minus that sunday. the sunday killed me because i was so burnt out, but seeing paul mccartney and all the old ladies with their walkers coming into the polo fields and then also being dead front and center for the killers... priceless.

    My mom railed it for Paul McCarthy. Never been more proud. As a matter of fact, I think I'll call her now.

    has to be the Saturday in 2006 since it was the day I knew exactly where I'd be spending a weekend in April every year!

    Saturday of 2008 was probably my favorite single day lineup-wise. Prince, Portishead, Kraftwerk, Hot Chip, (boys noize/erol), MGMT.

    Friday of 2010 is up there too. Fever Ray, LCD, Echo and the Bunnymen, Passion Pit, The Specials, She & Him, Hockey, Yeasayer

    Saturday '08 is a close second, but I'm going with Sunday '09.

    Mexican Institute of Sound
    No Age
    Okkervil River
    Lupe Fiasco
    Peter Bjorn and John
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    My Bloody Valentine
    Public Enemy
    watched The Cure do "Love Song" as I walked to
    Throbbing Gristle
    then seeing The Cure get shut down ended an amazing weekend.
