    Would like to say I regret missing PJ Harvey, as she was a target, but I don't really live that way.

    acts?

    how about the entire festival of 2006.


    or better yet, from 2004-2010. When I was a broke college student. I would have made it happen had I known how great it is.
    Coachella 2011 2012 and soon to be 2013

    QFT. I would have worked every spring break in college if I knew that coachella would be my reward.

    Ratatat last year -- same time as Chromeo. I don't regret seeing Chromeo (one of my favorite sets the whole wknd) but I wish they hadn't been at the same time.

    RxB in 2010 -- I was barely awake at 12:30, let alone ready to go inside the fest.

    Yes this, so much. Should've realized after five seconds of watching Kanye do a whole lot of nothing that I would've much rather been at the Presets.

    2010 - Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, Sleigh Bells
    2011 - Beardyman, Sleigh Bells (I fucked up TWICE)

    Speaking of Beardyman, can anyone else confirm that 2011's Friday 8 PM to 9:30 PM was the biggest clusterfuck of conflicted acts in the history of the world?

    I regret missing Elbow & Bright Eyes last year.

    And the year before that, Beach House.

    Side note: I missed Bright Eyes for Chipotle last year. Yet another example of how alcohol impairs your judgement.

    You didn't miss much at Beardyman. Some guy in a Banana suite was climbing and hanging upside down from the dome. It didn't sound right, outside of the dome anyways. People were just standing around talking about how good he was at other venues they had seen him at.

    I regret missing 2004...such a fantastic line-up.

    2005: Spoon, NIN, BLACK STAR (!!)
    2006: Daft Punk (I could hear them from the campground and was kicking myself for not being there the entire time; my friends are emo, and I guess I am too for not sucking it up and going alone), Atmosphere, Sleater-Kinney
    2007: Jose Gonzalez

    It's balls to the post-hardcore-wall this year

    while i have some regrets (its coachella, its inevitable) i'd say i've done pretty damn good over the years, especially looking at some of your lists. most of the bands i've missed have been out of ignorance except for a few i missed in 2011 due to some complicated situations with my party

    2011 - lauryn hill, odd future (waited around 20-30 mins for them to go on, finally gave up), arcade fire, animal collective, B.A.D., CSS, walked out during the presets specifically during the epic build in "are you the one" due to a medical emergency and i'd been looking forward to that set more than anything the whole weekend

    2010 - LCD soundsystem, couldnt even get in the tent for yeasayer so i only caught a song or two, john waters, mew (fucking volcano), sly stone meltdown (tho in retrospect i might have walked through this not realizing wtf it was), gary numan (fucking volcano), die antwoord (i didnt "get" them yet and i should never have listed to all the negative nancy's on this forum)

    2009 - most of leonard cohen, leaving leonard to rest between mojave and sahara during ghostland and not going in to have my face melted, beirut, ariel pink, most of throbbing gristle

    2008 - enter shikari, minus the bear, calvin harris, man man, missing most of kraftwerk

    2007 - jesus and mary chain, peaches (for lulz), sparklehorse, cocorosie, fields

    2006 - only went saturday

    2005 - didnt go, should have

    2004 - trail of dead, le tigre

    2001-2003 - didnt go but i feel if i had to miss any years these were good ones to miss, no regrets to that

    1999 - mr. scruff, cornelius, gus gus

    Gorillaz. Had to be home Sunday night. Thought about driving my car off a cliff on the way home...
    Friday: Arctic Monkeys

    Sunday: Justice

    That is all. Everyone else is an opener.

    Hanging out at the beer garden is cool but then you miss stuff. I HATE the fact that you can't buy beer and then leave the beer garden to go see the acts that you are missing. After all..... I'm there for the music NOT the beer. Having both together at the same time is what I call my kind of fun.

    Love Deadmau5. I get a kick out of those individuals that encase themselves in a really hot outfit all day long in 100 degree plus heat! Surprising they don't faint from the weight of the Deadmau5 mask ....

    Empire of the Sun was towards the end of the day....close to midnight. It was a good closing act on a VERY good day.
