    Skrillex and Die Antwoord. I can't decide which was worse.

    EDIT* The cube was also quite shitty.

    I am surprised to not see your name next to the Steve Aoki option when I check the votes. I kinda feel you are obligated to select Aoki.

    I voted for Aoki, thinking it was Uffie for some reason. Then I realized that Uffie wasn't on there. WTF?

    How do you add Crystal Castles 09 or was it 08? Either way last time they were at Coachella goes down in my book as the worst set I have ever seen
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    I don't understand why The Chemical Brothers are on here for their DJ set, it was fucking solid. Were they really worse than Uffie in your opinion. Stupid poll.

    I've never seen any of these. But I happened to be outside of the Sahara during SKrillex when I heard him say. "ALRIGHT EVERYONE PUT THE GIRL NEXT TO YOU ON YOUR SHOULDERS...*ANNOYING TRAINWRECK REWIND NOISE*...BUT DO IT RESPECTFULLY THO"

    That immediately won my vote for Worst Sahara act ever.

    Die Antwoord '10 defied all logic. It was an exercise in irreverence du jour at best. But placed before a must see act at night?! The whole thing was a sick joke that failed to deliver a punch line.

    Enough really can't be said of such a travesty as bumping a must see act, nay your headliner for the night, for some south african juggalos.

    I don't understand the logic of coachella sometimes.

    Even though I was excited for DJ Lance Rock and Yo Gabba Gabba to start off Coachella '10 my friend in the picture was not. I always remind him that he will always remember that set as the first act he saw @ Coachella '10. As I'm sure most daytime acts are melted away with the usual boozin and drug use for the weekend.

    Great poll, Wes. Chemical brothers dj set hardly should be included in the top 10 worse sets. Just cause you weren't into it doesn't mean it was the worst. Sorry it wasn't Death Crew 77.

    ur right. thats why its a poll. and dc77 was awful, thats why i left to watch leftfield. the only reason they arent on here is because chuckie and duck sauce were far worse. why the fuck would skrillex be on a worst set we watched poll? nobody here watched it. we know he sux, if u still watched his set anyway, AND think its the worst set, then ur an idiot

    I didn't watch it. You seem to be walking this line of "its only stuff that I personally saw and thought wasn't good". Hence,

    only vote for sets you actually saw.. although i guess you could count madonna if you tried but weren't actually able to
    Obviously everyone is going to have a different opinion on what was the worse and since you can only have 10 options, this must be Wes's Top 10 Worse Sahara Acts Since Daft Punk.

    I think you should have tried to (like a previous poster suggested) use sets that are among the general consensus to be the worst acts since 2006 and not use your own personal list because now we have nothing to discuss other than your not so popular taste in music instead of what was the worse act since 2006.

    Because I want to know....

    1. a poll of sahara acts that the boardies all hate and didnt watch is both predictable and completly redundant. this is more a poll of acts u watched and thought was awful. diff thread, make it ala dylans request, if ya want.. 2. of all the sahara sets ive seen (nearly 40), chem bros dj set was my least fav. IMO. technically fine, but i was peaking AND bored. worst set for seeing them for the first time. Dont Think played better on main. them being in LAST place on ur best act since daft poll is ironic.

    The only one I witnessed was Steve Aoki. Watched for about 5 minutes.

    Well, I saw Chemical Bros too of course, but I assumed it was a joke that they were on this poll.... right?
