    Default WTF happened in 2006???

    all anyone can talk about is this set that daft punk threw down in 2006. you all cannot let it go, which makes me wonder WTF happened on the polo fields that night!?

    did anyone leave a piece of themselves on the lawn that evening?

    i was in front of the sound booth at the main stage for that chemical bros. set in 2011 and that was AfuckingMAZING, and i would love for them to come back but i dont live and die by it. can anyone compare the 2 sets?

    i'm honestly jealous of everyone who was there for daft punk in 2006 but you all need to come up with some new materiel, that shit was 6 years ago, almost 7 now.

    questions, comments, concerns?

    Their next set is going to drop a bunch of Grinderman samples into the mix.

    I was pretty unfamiliar with Daft Punk at the time - remembered the Around the World video with the skeletons when I heard it live and thought the pyramid was cool. I didn't catch all of their set and hadn't consumed any magical substances so I didn't enjoy it as much as most of the crowd seemed to. That's my most vivid memory of their performance, the crowd. People were getting down.

    The thing is, no one was expecting what happened. that's the magic of it.

    Also, it was a moment in time that synced perfectly with what was going on that defined the generation (youtube was just starting to get popular - does anyone remember searching coachella in early 2006 and just coming up with chemical brothers sets and some daylight dj sets?) and, well, it just exploded from there. that night was the very first night they played after 8+ years of live absence, so it was a huge deal. and they just went and exceeded the expectations. everyone was having the time of their lives in that tent. just special.

    I remember right after the show walking around the campsite and talking to people and feeling really really bad for the few that answered "didn't see it, but She wants revenge was amazing!" ><...was an incredible night. But their show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley was better.

    it was basically what you saw at Alive, if you went.

    except without the hype-train behind it and the complete and utter shock of what the fuck was even going on.

    I remember lots of people saying "Its just two djs. Its not like they are going to show up in full robot costumes and destroy the place" Well thats exactly what happened. When the lights first came up everyone went ape shit at the sight of them in full get up high up on a pyramid. As if that was not enough the show built up with every song. At first nobody knew the amount of lights and production that went into that stage. Throughout the set more and more lights and production started to come out. Everyone in that tent was fully engaged and getting the fuck down! It really was a special moment that I dont think can ever be duplicated. It was still awesome to see them on tour in LA but it was nowhere near what happened that magical night.

    This^^^ They worked the crowd over so well and we didn't even know what hit us. Throughout the whole set the crowd kept guessing what was coming next and because they mashed up all their hits you kept getting surprised. Then the visual queues got more and more intense and finally climaxed with the pyramid going nuts. Epic. Energy. Period.

    The last thing I'll say about the show was this. Memorable. I have a lot of memories about different acts at Coachella in the 5 years I've been since 2002. This show brings more memories than most acts I've ever seen.

    Memorable? Very discriptive.

    Great set. Will never be topped, by anything, ever. Don't even try.

    It was a special moment. What I remember most was how energized the crowd was. It was electric.

    Drug music? Wow ok.

    Personally, don't do drugs, but can't get enough of that music. It just puts me in a different place. I guess the music IS my drug, if you must go that route..

    Arguably, 2006 was the best Coachella lineup EVER.
    Even without Daft Punk!

    Massive Attack, Gnarls Barkley, Imogen Heap, Madonna, etc.

    Don't forget Amadou & Mariam! That was one of the best day sets I've ever seen. It was amazing to see everyone, including the Tool metal-heads, getting their groove on together. The Mojave was the perfect setting as well.

    I was there, but was disappointed by how glitchy the LCD visuals were at various times. Also, the encore in 2007's tour was straight magic, which was absent from the Coachella show.
