    Lots of other good stuff, but an honorable mention to the craft beer tent, as they're set was fucking killer.

    No. The band made the announcement last summer before Bumbershoot. They have been doing live shows for about a year now with Narducy instead. This was all covered about a week before the fest.

    Great weekend all around. And I don't get why people say HAIM and Lana Del Rey are horrible live either, they were both really good.

    Staff at GV may agree with every word he said, though they enjoy the giant influx of cash they get from VIP.

    Everything I saw this weekend was fucking amazing. I cannot possibly pick a true "top 5" and would be completely unable to place the 5 above in a specific order. Coachella really outdid themselves this year--between the art, the acts, the special guests... everything was unbelievably amazing.

    I ended up missing all of Saturday and Sunday morning/early afternoon as my gf stepped on a nail and it went through her foot...we spent most of Coachella in the ER. Of the limited amount of stuff I did see, I enjoyed:

    Arcade Fire
    Disclosure
    OutKast from B.o.B. to the end of Big Boi's solo set, all of which was pure magic. They lost me with Andre's solo material and Future.
    Jagwar Ma

    Seems like an amazing year for all of you guys. I almost felt like I didn't even go...but Arcade Fire and Disclosure from the ADA stands was maybe my favorite back to back punch I've ever had at this festival, and my gf loves both bands so it was a nice ending for her even though the prior days had been rough.

The run-up to the CH show would have put the Oklahoma land rush to shame. At least the Toy Dolls offered a respite.
    this makes me concerned about the future of the festival

    I seriously cannot get this set out of my head - they did more in 30 minutes than most bands did with double the time.

    1. Rudimental - Everything i thought it would be.
    2. Mogwai - Fuck sake they were brilliant
    3. Fatboy Slim - wasnt even planning on this, but glad i followed some friends. This guy killed that stage.
    4. Arcade Fire - was hoping for Bowie, but they still made for a great closer.
    5. (Tie) Chvrches - So much fun. Can't wait to see them again at OSL. (Tie) Beck - stumbled into this with a friend, fantastic.

    HM: Glitch Mob, Darkside (WOW), Ellie Goulding, DJ Falcon, Sander Kleinenberg, Capital Cities, Dillon Francis (shocked), Pixies, The Naked and Famous.

    Overall the sets i saw were great, but a few kinda sucked.

    1. Lana Del Rey - Maybe not her, but that crowd almost got me killed and my arm was burnt by the Churro machine i was pushed against.
    2. Muse - the set was great, from what i could hear. The sound just killed their show.
    3. Outkast - What the fuck Andre, at least act like you want to be there. Again, set was awsome but the energy they put out was awful.
    4. Pet Shop Boys - i got to creeped out by the people around me. Thought they were ok, but not what i was wanting.
    5. Martin Garrix - I didnt see him, but fuck him. His crowd was stupid big and i got lost from my friends who were trying to meet up. shitty artist with shitty fans. The music I heard from the info booth was so old and played out. This kid was so late on everything he was playing.

    She's doing fine now. She was in a wheelchair on Sat but has moved on to crutches and is a trooper, and is figuring them out pretty quickly. Having Arcade Fire, her favorite band, close out the weekend so excellently was the silver lining and I think salvaged what was an extremely difficult week for her. We were actually devastated at how unhelpful Coachella's volunteers were on average (although a couple were quite excellent) for about a hundred different reasons, including refusing us ADA passes after we had gotten to the festival on Sunday initially despite three e-mails (two from Coachella and one from ADA directly) saying her situation qualified her for an ADA pass, which was the only reason we came in on Sunday in the first place. Additionally, when we were struggling getting her wheelchair across the tanbark paths of the Red Path, we were refused by two pedicap drivers saying they were two tired (!) and then a third dropped us off only half as far as we wanted to go and charged us $40. It was the first time I've been so disillusioned for what is normally a top-notch festival.

    It was a really bizarre situation. About 8-9 large scale black screws (I guess is more accurate than a nail) were scattered around the walking path of the complex we rented a home in, screw side up. Another guy stepped on one the night before but he had a chunky sneaker on so it didn't get to his foot. My girlfriend was wearing flats Saturday morning and one went clear through.
