    Definitely.

    I worked my way up the left side of the stage to a small group of Crowded House fans singing along to every song. It was great...until the water incident. I was amazed at how professional Neil was. He saw us singing, and walked over looking at our group without missing a beat. Most artists would have bailed.

    Absolutely, yes. And seeing that makes my heart break all over again. A credit to Neil and the rest of them for keeping their composure. Fucking RATM fans... the worst. Poor Crowded House should have been scheduled on the Outdoor stage, away from the rabble.


    We saw them at the Troubadour later on that year to make up for it. Wonderful show.

    And I would have to add that second on the list would be the Sly Stone debacle. Sly rambling incoherently while sitting on an office chair, the pained smiles and desperation of the Family as they repeatedly attempted to get him on task, was truly painful to witness.

    If I had been there and saw who threw that water bottle I'd make sure they got lynched. That's just brutal.

    The Rage fans had themselves parked at the main stage from mid afternoon on... no bottle throwing, but they were rude during Willie Nelson, too. Uhhh guys, there's a legend on stage? Didn't matter.

    Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaage! The helicopter hovering over and cops in riot gear in campgrounds, "telling you to goto bed or you will be arrested for defiance"

    Pretty awful, very memorable.


    I would say Madonna was a pretty awful moment: Literally every stage but Gobi was closed, Madonna arrived 40 minutes late in a smaller Sahara tent than today. Doesn't even play a hit other than her 2006 or something trash single and plays 3 more songs then bounces. Everyone who saw Madonna felt that was some horseshit, but now she's off the "James Murphy" list.

    i can't think of a worse moment. i wasn't there, but hearing about it and seeing the video pissed me off. The asshole who threw that bottle and the inconsideration from many Rage fans that day is a major reason i embraced the elimination of single day tickets. Going full weekend pass decreased the odds of absolute tools crashing the party. The next time we complain about the Bro factor, we must always remember these dicks.

    The worst Coachella moment ever is 2008 Uffie's entire set.

    If you didn't see it, consider yourself lucky.

    Just imagine the entire Sahara tent standing motionless, faces blank, staring idly at the stage wondering what the fuck is this shit?

    Ding ding ding. Easy winner. The absolute worst was 4+ hours in the parking lot waiting to get out after 2+ hour driving in and 2 hours in line.

    My first Coachella was 2007, and I still hear more about Madonna's shitty spectacle than anything else.

    All you can hear screaming are the couple idiot girls near the front. I remember the silence of the crowd being quite uncomfortable.

    lol at least it would have meant I was at Coachella 2008 *le sigh*

    The worst thing about Madonna's fiasco for me: I was loving the YYYs set but mainly hoping that they would play the song "Warrior". I stayed there as long as I could without missing any of Madonna's set and of course it didn't matter because she ended up 40 minutes late. Literally the next song the YYYs played after I left was "Warrior" and they have never played it at any shows of theirs I've been to since.

    The Worst or the Best?

    Wanted to run over to catch Tame Impala but I was so tweaked by this that I stayed for the rest of the Haunted Graffiti instrumental set.
