    killer bands, still no sold out CO. feeling to festival yet and only about 45,000 so you could see bands in the tent.stages up close no problem.

    Oh yeah and HOLLYWOOD still had no clue about it yet.

    For me, 2009 was my favorite year (not lineup, but experience) aka the first year I got the full Coachella experience of attending all three days, camping, the whole deal. Climbed the fence Thursday night to watch Paul McCartneys's soundcheck, danced onstage for MIA, and camped out at the mainstage all day to be up front for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (one of my favorite bands)

    this. Great lineup. Also, the last year when crowds were still small but amenities had been improved

    Tossup between 2008 and 2011. 08 was my first 3 day year and the lineup was probably my favorite to date, and last year was just a blast, Tallest Man on Earth and Arcade Fire really made it a special weekend.

    2010. Despite the clusterfuck the lineup was epic! Having Fever Ray/Whitest Boy Alive close Friday night was just unreal.

    2008. great lineup and general vibe. Camping wasn't the greatest that year, or maybe I was just burned out on camping in general.

    2006 Saturday was pretty fucking epic, from Joey Beltram in the afternoon, Carl Cox, Depeche Mode, all the way to Daft Punk!
    Crystal Method before Paul McCartney was pretty awesome as well.

    Every year I keep telling myself this!

    My 2nd Coachella had to be my favorite. It was still "mind blowing" and I actually did everything right. Been chasing that experience ever since.

    In my experience the line-up doesn't necessarily guarantee the best Coachella. It takes good planning, the right people and a little bit of luck.

    pre-3day coachella i'd say 2004 hands down

    more recent i'd say 2009 not just because of bands but the people i was with and the whole experience. 2010 was a great lineup but the clusterfuckness of it all totally ruined it

    This. But for music I have to go with 2009.
