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

  1. #1

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

    There are sooo many moments during my 11 years with this festival that this was very difficult to pick but, at my first Coachella in 2001 when I walked in to see Sigur Ros. I had only heard about them because at the time Radiohead were raving about them but I had never heard what they sounded like. During Olsen Olsen, near the end when it breaks out into the full string section, there was a man in a suit standing a few feet away from me that acted as a conductor along with the song and it is a image and feeling that keeps bringing me back year after year to Coachella.

    Brazilian Girls 2007 - It was my first Coachella and I remember just feeling incredibly lucky listening and watching this amazing band that so many don't even know about... And I pretty much made a vow to never miss Coachella
