Thread: Acts you regret missing?

    Default Acts you regret missing?

    I figure everyone that has been to Coachella has at least one act they regret missing. I was wondering what some of your biggest regrets were?

    For me there is a few (despite the fact that I've only been 1 year):

    Vampire Weekend - Got to the fest late on Thursday night and wasn't able to get a wink of sleep. Went back to the campsite and slept on Friday after Them Crooked Vultures (which was at like 9PM). Tiredness was the only excuse to miss them and in hindsight, that isn't a very good excuse.

    Whitest Boy Alive - Same problem as with Vampire Weekend. I was just too tired to see them that day and I really wish I hadn't been. I heard they put on a killer set, which makes me even more upset that I missed it.

    2 Many DJs - A friend I was with insisted we see Tiesto because "he puts on an amazing live set". His set wasn't really that exciting and I wish I had just gone with my gut and seen what I wanted to see.

    Fever Ray, Plastikman. I can't believe I skipped out on these. I saw the first 15 minutes of Fever Ray and while it looked AWESOME, I was so incredibly tired I ditched it. I will never do this again.

    I missed 2008 in its entirety. I really regret that, but it was just out of my control.

    I only caught Hot Chip's last song in 2010, wish I'd seen more.

    for sure Whitest Boy Alive was my highlight last year, i also saw Mayer Hawthorne, The Cure, and Public Enemy...ha ha ha but in exchange I missed Deadmau5 set. I had seen twice before but I heard his Coachella set was way better. However, the worst miss will be this year cuz I was caught off gaurd with quickness of sell out of tickets....ugh...sigh

    2006--Gnarls Barkley, Daft Punk (don't ask, it still hurts to talk about it)

    2009--Throbbing Gristle (why did I stay at the Cure when I've seen them a ton?--husband came back with his eyes the size of saucers and I knew I had fucked up big)

    2010--Wow, nobody I guess! Well, Yeasayer but we were stuck in the gnarled ball of entry.

    Fever Ray...Missed because the group who's rented house I was staying at was ready to leave shortly after Jay-Z started.

    The lamest part about the whole ordeal was that it wasn't until about 1:00 a.m. when we found out they accidentally only rented the house for Saturday and Sunday...

    Yes, I made the same mistake...watching Imogen...what was up with her set? My biggest regret from last year was missing Jonsi for Julian, bah. Still bummed about that.

    I'm bitter about GV moving Yann Tiersen to an earlier slot. I wanted to watch this set instead of Gorillaz (more like SNOREillaz *high five*), so fuck GV.

    Definitely Beirut in 2009.

    I saw a few songs of Beirut's set but was unfortunately drawn away by the knowledge that Morrissey, my obsession at the time who I had seen three times prior, was playing on the main stage. I ran over to Morrissey to see him play a song he's played every time I've seen him ("Irish Blood, English Heart") and then ran back... to the Sahara to watch Girl Talk be late and then play music consisting of songs that haven't been very relevant for a number of years. Some girl with long hair was standing in front of me during Girl Talk's set. She kept jumping in the air. Each time she did this her long hair would somehow enter my mouth. This factor was what made me realize that I had made a horrible mistake.

    Plump DJs is one of mine. I couldn't get away from my non-music-loving friends who just wanted to hang out in the beer gardens. Arrgh!!

    2ManyDJs is my only other. Different non-music-loving friends who were giving me a ride wanted to leave early. Booo!

    Lessons Learned:
    - Friends are bad at Coachella.
    - Camp or rent your own vehicle.

    I was hanging out in the beer garden directly behind the Sahara during the Plump DJs, so I heard them but didn't want to go deep into the Sahara. Bad decision.
