    Default BEST ALL TIME COACHELLA PERFORMANCE POLL

    Even though I think we know the answer (considering triple the amount of people attended the festival from 04-06 compared to 99, this makes the results a little pre-deteremined)

    Possibly, let's find out.

    How do you make polls? I tired and it didn't work out.

    I would also like to add The Flaming Lips, 2004 - helping push Wayne around the audience in that big plastic bubble was a lot of fun.

    Too bad all those Wayne C. antics cut their set way too short.

    you could add:

    Basement Jaxx 04
    Air 04
    Tool 99
    Libertines (second try, following day in Mojave)
    SFA 99
    Queens 02 (with D Grohl on drums)
    Belle and Sebastian 03
    St Germain 01

    I voted Lamb to give them some love. Their performance in 99 was AMAZING, although I think only me and C Dub Ya are left to testify to it. I wish I could see them live again, but I think they're probably broken up by now.

    Yeah haven't heard anything from them in a while? Seriously - the energy in that show, you couldn't helped but be sucked into it.

    Basment Jaxx was great, and so were Arcade Fire...but Daft Punk trumped all including Pixies and Radiohead. I was in the first tier of the crowd, right up front for the entire show...simply AMAZING!

    c dub ya,

    do you mean B & S in 02 - the Outdoor Stage, because that was pretty good.

    On my vote though (Daft 06) I would have it as a tie with The Pixiesm, simply amazing and didn't miss a beat after almost 10 years!

    I still see visions of those robots in my dreams. That was some serious shit! I'm not even a Daft Punk fan, but my god man - I thought that Pyramid was gonna shoot into outer space after their set got done. Good times.

    I voted for Pixies 2004 given that list, but I also would have added Air 2004. Their set wasn't necessarily that much better than The Pixies (The Pixies were one of the main reasons I attended), but given the timing (a sunset performance), it was amazing.

    No - I am not - the political rants between every song brought the set way down in most attendees eyes. I think it did anyway, that's what I've always heard.

    Ouch tough one, being a huge Radiohead fan that was my least fave performance of all the times I have seen them. So it comes down to DP or Pixies... hmmmm

    daft punk is prolly gonna get it. I mena a lot of people were amazaed...the light show alone....not to mention...
    the coolness of it wasnt jsut the lights or the music....but that itwas daft punk's 2nd tour ever...there last one being 9 years before coachella, and they decided to start off playing at coachella. Maybe if you put madonna up there, she would beat out DP ..... even though she started late...left early...and played 4 songs

    oh whoa wait! you sohuld start a poll of worst performance by a headliner..... hahah
    see kids, Lily Allen is proof, you can go from being a drug dealer in Ibiza, to a musical star, and eventually play at coachella

    WORST EVER?

    Oakenfold '01 when his ego made him take the main stage and a slight breeze kept blowing the needle off his turntable. What a putz!

    Daft Punk.

    It wasn't just the music that made that the best show but the synergy of all the audience dancing and having a good time was truly amazing!

    Well they both were amazing - you saw a dandy, no doubt. Crowd was amazing, the green lazers going off to King of Snake was MENTAL! But I don't like the 100 material nearly as much as the other records, in 99, there was no such material in the setlist. We even got Bruce Lee!!!!

    Video projections in 99 were the same as the ones on the Everything Everything DVD, so, very cool. It was also nice in 99 because they were outdoors and it gave it a different experience than the usual tent thing.

    I put my faves like this:
    Underworld 99
    Daft Punk 06
    Underworld 03
    Arcade Fire 05
    Lamb 99
    Belle and Sebastian 02

    I really liked the Cure's set too. Air was amazing, and Arcade Fire played one of the greatest performances i'll ever see, but Daft Punk was just something special.

    air 2004 should definately be on there. the cure was my favourite, but i wouldn't vote for it because i realize it wasn't exactly a great performance, it was just my first time so i was excited.

    The two Mogwai sets were also fairly epic, especially the outdoor one last year.
