    Default Best/Worst Coachella

    Which year is considered the best, and which considered the worst on paper. Did these years turn out to be the best/worst or did another year surprise you in being the best or the worst.

    2008 has been the best for me out of 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012w1/2012w2

    I've enjoyed them all though.

    2008 was peak Sahara, 2012 has been the worst the Sahara has had to offer.

    I have exact same coachella's under my belt except only 2012 w1 and totally agree that 2008 was my favorite...which ironically, was also probably the worst line-up on paper of the last five. But Prince, Waters, My Morning Jacket, The National, Sharon Jones, Akron/Family and many others all killed.

    2010 was the least enjoyable because of the crowds, but of the five I've attended, I actually thought last year's was the least impressive musically...as one reviewer described last year...a lot of excellent performers, in service of an endless array of mediocre songs.

    2010 was challening to enjoy.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Reeeeal crowded. But I'd say last year was probably the worst overall. The quality of the crowd was worse than the quantity of 2010... And I avoided Sahara like the plague.

    I've been going since 2007, and 2011 still remains my favorite to this day. A really strong undercard coupled with the creators project's stage set-ups worked out quite well for me.

    Agree wholeheartedly. A lot of the 2011 undercard bands have become my favorite bands of all time.

    I'm pretty glad that 2010 was my first year. No time is better than your first time, and you usually don't realize how bad it was.

    Best: 2008 was absolutely incredible for me. Line-Up, Reasonable Crowds, The Art(I spent a good amount of time in the Sonic Forest), Just about everything was All Star that year. I can't really say my worst. I'd need a better adjective as I've never been to a Coachella that could be associated with the term "Worst".

    2009 was my first year and the best for me. I kinda liked not being able to go back to the campsite that year. Also it was the last year of tent camping being the main way to camp which i preferred. Discovered tons of new bands that year and Ghostland blew my mind.

    Worst: Never.Cee Lo was the wort thing I've ever seen but still, no year is the worst.

    1. Not being able to back to campsite that year - WHAT? You could go back to your campsite always.
    2. Preferring tent camping to car camping - WHAT? It's the same but you don't have to carry all your shit from parking lot to camping lot

    I've been going since 2009, and that has still been my favorite year....

    This was also BY FAR my favorite year of the do-lab, as far as the design of the installation.

    But last year weekend 1 was pretty awsome, although i too avoided the sahara like the plague.

    2010 was my least favorite, but only due to the overcrowding, i still loved it though...

    1. I meant when you went in to the venue you couldn't go back to your campsite and enter back in on the same day.
    2. Hauling all that stuff really was all part of the experience for me. I loved every moment of it and had some great time with friends doing it too.

    1. I don't believe this is true. 2009 was the only year I've been to Coachella with a gf and we went back to my camp all the time to get her changed from next to nothing into a little more than that for night time. As well as an afternoon quickie between bands.

    2. Spoken like light camper. If you had anywhere near as much camping equipment as I have you wouldn't say that.
