    In terms of overall experience, 2011 was the best year I have attended. Not necssarily the best for music, but when you factor everything in, it was my favorite year.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    Only been 09, 10, and 11.

    But 2010 was my favorite. Amazing set after amazing set after amazing set. No disappointments (sans Gossip & MGMT) just exceeded expectations (Gil Scott-Heron & DJ Lance Rock)

    I skipped both Gossip and MGMT last year but pretty much this.

    for my experiences

    06 was an eye opener
    07 was just a crazy party
    08 was THE PEAK of my coachella: musically and emotionaly
    09 was all about seeing Paul McCartney outside of that. . . .
    10 was kind of a clusterfuck but still fun
    11 was the comeback, so much fun maybe because 10 lowered my expectations

    Yeah. But maybe I was expecting something crazier than what they normally are. Plus hearing my friends rave about the XX and seeing how easy it was to get close to Corrine Bailey Rae makes me regret it.

    I've been every year expect the first Coachella (99) and 2004 was the most magical experience of my life. After that? 2005 & 2007 stand out. Last year was fantastic, probably just a step below those three. 2010 was the worst because of the overcrowding. I dont know how long Ill go to Coachella, but the answer has been the same for several years; at least once more.

    asking to choose is like asking which of my children I love more... ok I don't have any kids, and I'd probably say
    1) 2006 - the first day all that really mattered was daft punk. Day two, going from Massive Attack to The Go Team to The Scissor Sisters did it for me.
    2) 2011 - Relief seeing the crowding issues fixed, it was much more relaxed, and the bands were fucking unreal.

    My car was broken into that year as well. They stole my cheap deck (which cost me a whopping $50), my Ps1 with mini-LCD attachable screen, some burned CD's, some other stuff and left behind two tallcans in paper bags. Blue Man Group, Underworld and The White Stripes were all great. The Beastie Boys and the Chili Peppers were both pretty bad though.

    2011, year of the undercard. Didn't see one headliner and had the best time.
