    Default Post one (AND ONLY ONE) picture of your favorite coachella moment

    So I was browsing through my pictures of past coachellas, and I thought that it would be an interesting exercise if everyone posted their single favorite picture that they have taken of their favorite coachella moment.

    This could create a interesting collage of everybody's favorite memories of our amazing festival.

    Rules:
    you can post only one picture
    you can only post pictures that you have taken or pictures where you are the subject

    lemme start:

    I know I'll get some flack for this but it truly was my favorite coachella moment. up till this point, besides the prodigy and the chemical brothers, I really didn't listen to electronic music. this truly was a life changing moment.

    one white light illuminates the robots at the opening of their set; no one knew what they had in store for us and how their stage show would evolve. much in the way that my love for electronic music has evolved, opening my ears to 100's of new songs and sounds.

    Monday morning. Everyone was leaving and my festival partner (who I had never met before - I picked her up at the airport on the way in) found a wading pool that someone had left behind. We filled it with water, poured a couple cocktails and had a pool party. We were pretty much the last ones to leave that day. Awesome.

    I don't take too many photos once in the festival so with my limited options I go with this one from Friday April 25th, 2008. My first day. It took practically 2 hours to get in with the traffic, but we finally parked at about 3:30, enough time to run in and catch the closing song by Battles and start my addiction to this festival. I also took the photo thinking it would help me remember where I parked later, but with all the excitement, I forgot what lot we parked in. Good memories.

    Thanks! It was kind of crazy because she was coming here from Sydney, Australia and had broken up with her boyfriend and so she had no place to crash. She found me through the Coachella Facebook page and I picked her up at the Phoenix airport on the way to the festival. We had never met before, but we liked the same bands and partied our asses off until sunrise every night. Late Monday we roadtripped back to Phoenix and I poured her out of the truck and she flew back to Oz.

    Coachella was incredible on it's own, but having her along for the ride took it to another level! Festival karma, man. It's a beautiful thing.

    I often forget to take pictures when inside the fest, but this was my favorite from this year.

    I was okay with missing this year until I saw those spectacular sunsets on the YouTube stream...can only imagine how amazing they were in person.

    here's mine:



    The Dome, early Sunday morning of 2009 -
    after a night of Thievery Corporation, The Chemical Brothers, MSTRKRFT, camping party, and hitting the Dome till close. I made it through that night to see my only Coachella sunrise. On paper it seemed like it might be a relatively weak night of Coachella, but it ended up one of the best nights of my life. I turned around to snap this picture of the Dome as everyone was streaming out, with the moon and Venus looming above, and just stood there for a minute..perfect feeling at that moment.

    Every moment flows into the next and I'd have a hard time picking just one!

    Musically it was Orbital last year! I was so happy to hear them I almost cried with joy! Weird for me!

    But my favorite moment of each year is walking into the Do-Lab and seeing an artist like this guy creating something special for Coachella!

    It brings the whole Coachella Experience together for me!

    "Ill see you on the Dark Side of the Moon".... the first year i went for the duration of the festival. The moment during that set i looked up at the sky and sighed... "I belong here, we all belong here"

    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Where: the Mojave
    When: Sunday, 2007
    Who: VNV Nation

    If you're like me, at the end of the third day of Coachella your ass is thoroughly kicked. The sanest portion of your brain that is left in one piece is screaming for you to find solace somewhere sprawled out on the grass where you can chill the hell out and let your bones recover while listening to one last band ease the end of the weekend into your ears.

    Well screw that noise. We caught VNV Nation instead.

    For those unfamiliar with the band, they are from Europe and require you to constantly move to their synthpop/EBM deliciousness.

    Towards the end of their sweat-drenched set, lead vocalist Ronan Harris, bathed in blue light, paused during a song to make sure the crowd was still with him... and Mark Jackson took a break from beating the drums like they stole something to raise his arms in an effort to summon the crowd into screaming its collective breath out with all the volume we could muster. The receptive crowd obliged both of them. It was that moment when I took this picture.



    With a flash the moment was gone, Ronan yelled for everyone to move and I dropped the camera back into my pocket so I could destroy what was left of the bottom of my feet and bounce around like an idiot. The crowd was into it, it seemed like it went from small to a decent size as the band kept going... other people were looking to get one last dance fix in too, I suppose.

    And then all too soon, it was over. With our skin electric and gleaming in the light, we walked over to the main stage to catch the last of Rage, but our headliner that night was already done, and what was going on stage there seemed like child's play compared to what we were just through.

    It's difficult to angrily mosh after you've been hopping around in Heaven for an hour.

    Beautiful sentiment, couldn't agree more.
