Orbital was my favorite Sahara set of all time
I forgot how good Faithless was in 2007.
The National/Warpaint - 4/21 - Moody Theater
Mogwai - 4/24 - Emo's
Cloud Nothings/The Men - 4/26 - The Mohawk
Austin Psych Fest - 5/2 - 5/4 - Carson Creek Ranch
King Khan & the Shrines - 5/30 - The Mohawk
Cut Copy - 6/21 - Stubbs
Swans - 6/27 - The Mohawk
Boris - 7/29 - The Mohawk
remember when crookers opened with pon di floor in 09? ..also deadmau5 10 was dope despite the number of 15 yr charity cases around me rolling face..i turned into a mommy pouring water into kidsiz mouths..
Sasha & Digweed in '08, I also really enjoyed Orbital in '10.
I voted Faithless. They were worth the anticipation for me. MSTRKRFT in '07 was fun. So was Hot Chip. I didn't see Etienne de Cracy but it looked and sounded pretty awful from the YTs. Boys Noize was incredible, too.
Bassnectar destroyed lives.
Four Tet - Mohawk - 3/1
Mac Demarco - Mohawk - 4/13
Etienne De Crecy was such CRAP.
PVC Pipe + White Sheets + Crap Projector
Orbital into Plastikman was out of this world.
I vote for that.
Upvote for Plastikman. A girl I was with had to leave the Sahara tent because she couldn't take the bass. It was one of those shows that needed to be experienced in person to fully appreciate. However a year later I saw Plastikman do the same set at EDC 11 and it was not nearly as intense as it was in the Sahara tent...that may be due to the stage at EDC being outdoors. Also...about Coachella 2011 w/ Sasha, it was good, but not amazing. Sasha needs a good 2-3 hours to put together a good set and 60 mins in the Sahara tent was just a nice teaser.

Dancing In The Desert and Loving Every Minute of Coachella!
Check out my Coachella pictures at Flickr.com under AJVaughn.com. Other art work there also!
There are 3 Coachella sets on Flickr.
Faithless should be the runaway number 1 in this poll. For shame, coachella message board. For shame.
For me, Faithless was a cut above the rest because of them being a bit of a pioneer and especially for being a live band. But they didn't have a pretty light show, so the tent wasn't even that full.
I didn't see Sasha, so I guess I can't really compare the two.
