    Jonsi in 2010.


    Came up as he was closing his set. Everyone was dead still and silent, and some people were even brought to tears. His beautiful Icelandic voice took over that area of the fest in a good way. Really epic to see, but wish I had seen more.

    I passed on Fever Ray and Deadmau5 last year in favor of Jay-Z...I'm not sure if I would have snuck off to catch their sets for a little bit; but I definitely had no choice but to solely stay at Jay-Z as my girlfriend was in attendance with me.

    I know Jay Z went on kind of late but I could have sworn that there wasn't that much overlap between him and Deadmau5 at least

    Fuck my memory is shot for that night

    You act like you weren't singing along to every single song.

    After Jay-Z ended I quickly tried making a B-line for the Sahara tent...I had just passed the Mojave tent when the masses from the Sahara started coming my way...too late. Jay-Z went on at 10:50 and Deadmau5 from 11:35 - 12:50.

    I would rather listen to Jay-Z than the other 2...I'm not denying that. However, that doesn't mean that I wouldn't have done half sets if I had the chance.

    As my foggy memory comes back I am pretty sure Jay-Z went on stage WAY AFTER 10:50...along with a 10 minute countdown for him to get his shit started when he was already late.

    I totally nubbed it last year, and didnt do much research ahead of time. Therefore, I missed a few acts that I would love to see now. Others that I knew about I missed for other dumb reasons

    Friday 2010: Dillinger Escape Plan (I hadnt slept in nearly 2 days, so I was resting at my tent), Wolfgang Gartner

    Saturday 2010: The Temper Trap, Bassnectar (caught the last song), 2ManyDJ's (in favor of Tiesto, rookie mistake. Never listening to my friend's terrible taste in music again)

    Sunday 2010: Infected Mushroom

    This year, Im making sure Im much better prepared. Researched the entire lineup, and Ill be planning who I see ahead of time

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.
    Tisk tisk my friend. Beirut blew my hair back. Plus, the crowed wasn't even that big. I was front and center.

    2006 - Daft Punk. I believe I was watching She Wants Revenge. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Ive been to the last 5 coachellas, and Ive only regretted missing a couple bands:

    Dungen in 2006(Somewhere around this year if not 2006)

    There was bad conflict between beach house and band of skulls. Im a more loyal fan to beach house, but I couldnt deny how much better they sounded at that hour of the day.

    I missed Les Claypool last year, but Im almost 100% sure that the Dead Weather was the better choice(This had to have been one of their best shows ever, the following Palladium show wasnt half as good)

    King Khan and the Shrines, Band of Skulls. Saw Infected in '10 and was kinda disappointed. Would have been better in a later slot and if I was fucked up

    Les Claypool was AWESOME!!!

    I had to choose as well and missed The Dead Weather ....sucked

    They were the top 2 groups I wanted to see and to have them stacked on the same day at the same time....I could not believe it....pissed me off when the schedule came out...o well...

    My biggest regret is missing Beirut in 2009. For no good reason other than I had just had my face fucked by Ghostland's lasers. What an idiot.

    Looking back on 2008 I had a ton of misses with it being my first Coachella, but I was at the important ones (Kraftwerk-->Portishead)

    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

    Almost same shit here...that was my virgin year and I was there to see Depeche Mode (haven't missed a year since). After DM, we stopped to see She Wants Revenge before going over to Daft. What the fuck was I thinking.?? I mean, I liked daft and used to spin homework quite often at underground parties, and i was like ok...lets check em out...little did we know. We caught them for the last 25 mins or so, but it was almost life changing. Fucking Epic!! The best Coachella performance ever hands down (well, at least for me and my gf).

    Well we ended up catching the pyramid again a few months later at the LA sports arena...atonement, for such ignorance.

    I love depeche, but I would trade 1 daft punk alive show for 5 depeche shows.

    For me it's Thom Yorke last year... For some reason I had this vicious desire to see Plastikman instead, which ended up sucking the worst of all ballz. Took off about 45 minutes in and caught the last song or to of Thom's set and found myself wishing I had caught it all...

    also we left Kraftwerk about 45 minutes in so we missed the last 15 minutes in 08 so that we could get to the Mojave in time for Animal Collective's start, which was a big mistake because AC ended up starting about 30 minutes late. FML
