    Default Best Crowds of Coachella 2012

    There has been talk about the best bands, but their hasn't been enough discussion about the best crowds of Coachella 2012. This is something that makes or brakes a set, a band plays better when they are motivated by the energized crowd, a notable example would be the Buzzcocks.

    So what bands do you think had the best crowd?

    Kasabian appeared to have an amazing crowd from the front, everyone rocking out. noel gallagher claimed it was the best set he's ever seen of theirs and they def. seemed to be feeding off of our energy.

    just check it, especially starting at 2 minutes in:

    Everyone at Kasabian was going crazy!

    The Madness crowd was really fun with everyone dancing.

    Dre and Snoop. Because it was all my Coachella brothers and sisters, minus any idiots that would waist time seeing DJ Levels
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    The Do Lab consistently has the craziest party going on, with the weirdest, funkiest people. Also, Modeselektor's crowd was dope, as was FlyLo's. Zeds Dead probably wins for overall rowdiest crowd though.

    Honestly, this year every crowd was amazing. I felt like people were friendlier and less pushy this year.

    However, the crowd for Pulp was very boring , and just stood there. Maybe they were all waiting for another band. I think Black Keys was next IIRC

    The Hives crowd because everyone was cracking up.
    Radiohead crowd because everyone around me was keeping quiet.

    I thought Refused had the best crowd for sure.

    The Kasabian crowd was the wildest I've ever seen in the Mojave, even moreso that the bronado during Cut/Copy last year. Seun Kuti also had a great crowd with lots of improvised group dancing which was a lot of fun.

    The Jeff Mangum crowd by far, followed second by the Buzzcocks crowd.

    Also, two of the best performances that weekend for both of those performers.

    Are you serious? The Mangum crowd was the worst! At least where I was standing (in front of the sound booth). Half the people were talking over the whole set. The worst!

    I agree that Jeff was the worst. I was surrounded by under 20 hipster kids talking about nothing. I gave a "shhh" a couple times.

    I liked Madness, Jimmy Cliff's and almost anything Do Lab crowd-wise all weekend. Not sure how it is overrated, fireboi.

    Add Death Grips in there as well.

    I was in the front for Dre & Snoop and I got hella blazed. Maybe it was just the weed or the immense lead up to an incredibly over the top performance, but it felt like everyone was there. I know that isn't true but its how it felt. Nobody knew what to expect. I remember standing there thinking "Holy Shit, this is MEGA hyped." They weren't even my number 1 choice for Coachella. The crowd around me was going nuts over seeing stars like Waka Flocka Flame, Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, The Hoff (Who took our picture), Earl, Macy Gray, Julianne Hough, and Cee Lo (Or some dude that looked like him). Then when the lights went out everyone got quiet. When LA started to rise out of the stage to that intro music I turned and looked behind me and the entire crowd looked scared. That was scary shit, and then Next Episode dropped and the crowd went fucking insane. I was being lifted off of my feet, girls were crying. Weekend 2 will never have that feeling. What the crowd had that night was special.

    Buzzcocks did have quite an awesome rowdy crowd!
    Kasabian looked like they had it going off in the front!
    Azelia Banks had the entire tent going nuts!
    Givers also had a great crowd from what I saw

    Kasabian was nuts. These guys are A listers overseas and know how to put on a badass show. I was dead center with my girl and we were going fucking crazy!

    I don't know about their crowd overall, but the people around me at ATDI were singing every word in the best way possible.
    The crowd for Weeknd sucked, because they were either singing (in the worst way possible) or talking about some stupid shit.
    The Thundercat crowd seemed overall smart, positive, and eager to get into all that jazz.
    The FlyLo crowd was similarly posi.

    You guys were in the wrong spot for Jeff Mangum.

    Up close to the stage the crowd was AMAZING. NO chatting AT ALL and singing along like crazy when asked to.

    Definitely the best crowd of all the sets for me.

    Rapture, Head and the Heart, Fitz were great too.
