    I heard that they were no good if you were sitting over in the tent thing, but that was hundreds of feet away (or something, I suck at distances). Explosions in the Sky were sensational.

    P,B, & J put me to sleep.

    I only wish the sound would have carried like Tiesto for Rage.

    TIESTO AND DJ SHADOW WERE BOTH INCREDIBLE. Crowded House and Mika sucked

    I was up front for PB&J and I thought they killed! It seemed like the crowd really loved them from where I was, but I didn't get to see the outskirts of the tent. Kind of surprising to read all of this.

    I'd have to say they worst acts I saw were Tilly & the Wall and Rufus Wainwright (ugh, I got roped into that one for a couple of songs because of the person I went with). I was most disappointed with Air. I was raving about them to everyone I came with and met and they proceed to screw it all up.

    i was expecting something good/great...left 3 songs in. I think it was mostly due to there shitty sound set up...it sounded off

    I'm surprised more people aren't talking about Air. 35 minutes late, followed by the shortest, yet somehow most boring set I've ever seen from them. Thank g-d the Teddybears saved the night.

    I also thought Tilly & the Wall was disappointing, though I saw a video of them on YouTube that made me think they might be. The tap dancing drummer is a cool gimmick and their music isn't bad, but those girls can't sing.

    I walked from Peaches. It was a pretty awful set.

    I mostly heard a lot of mediocrity - it wasn't truely bad, just dull.

    But, the worst of Coachella is always the heat.

    You're also forgetting about the outdoor stage, mojave, and gobi. Why relegate yourself to just ragging on the sahara tent? Well, to each his own I suppose.

    What was up with the teleprompter on the floor for Happy Mondays? I'm not a fan of them, so I don't know if the dude singing was a guest artist or just didn't know his shit.

    The worst part about Coachella was the 2 hour wait to get in from the camp ground on friday in 100+ weather! That was bullshit!!!!!!!

    and waiting over an hour for Air! what the fuck!

    Whoever the fuck was in charge of the monitors at the Bjork show made her set unwatchable. She sounded amazing, great new versions of fave songs, but the camera asshole kept showing hands on computers and the chicks playing the horns, with only occasional glimpses of Bjork. What the f-ing fuck was that about?!? We came to SEE Bjork, not the giant hands of who-the-fuck-knows playing a laptop.

    5.Peaches I dn't stick around cause she started so late. Caught the last song & am glad i didn't. When did she turn into an ensemble?
    4. Shadow, wen't ghetto on our asses but pulled out some classics.
    3. DJ Heather, mixing CDs is LAME.
    2. THe Music Institute dropouts that ran sound for Sonic Youth.
    #1 Richie Hawtin yr a fuckin legend in Techno so do something innovative for a change & hang up yr minimalist bullshit. It wouldn't hurt to change the Bassline at least once within 25 miniutes either.

    Lilly Allen gets an honorable mention for her vengeful dumb song about small dicks she's sucked & fucked! Shallow fuckin cunt. She problably sits there & lets the dude do all the work anyway.

    Steve Aiokis' DJing attempt and Mickey Avalon on the same stage as the Happy Mondays... Imagine how many people they let blow a load in their face to be able to do what they did? They both come from the same batch of crud muffins!!!

    Lily Allen - She was certainly the weakest act I saw this year. She kept screwing up, and while she at least acknowledged it and was self-depreciating, I expect far better from an act who knows they are playing a major music festival. Maybe she had stage fright or maybe she improved after I left for Air (ha!)

    Air - Late =p

    Celebrity singing & the Golden Voice (?) Projection Screen Camera people - I paid $300 to see musicians. I neither care to hear celebrities’ mediocre singing, nor care to see close ups of Paris Hilton or any other celebrity. If I wanted to hear celebrities sing, I'd buy their crap CDs. If I wanted to see celebrities on screen, I'd watch E! or download Paris Hilton's DVD.

    Yes! I thought there was something a little different this year. I saw so many dudes that looked and sounded exactly the same.

    This weekend there were great sets and not so great sets...
    the Top 5: NOT-SO-GOOD:
    1. Air- I was really excited about this act, because I thought they rocked in 04', but this year they were late and uninspirational.
    2. DJ Shadow- again real excited, but because I left Bjork early to see him and he was a late and having a tift with someone backstage was unappealing.
    3. Beer Prices: I don't know if we do not do enough bitching about this, but why do beer prices have to be a huge burden on us.
    4. Comedians of Comedy: died up there, anytime they needed a laugh they had to resort to a shit or fart joke.
    5. ghetto bird: the cops were above my tent in a helicopter telling all the campers that they had to go to bed now.

    Default The heat

    The worst thing of Coachella was no doubt the heat in the tent at 10 am, when there was nothing else to do but stay in line under the sun for hours to take a shower, which was the best of Coachella though. I heard that the heat was more than 100 F degrees, God... that's hot. Portable toilets aren't the best in the world neither, but the staff kept'em clean as possible. Thank u guys.

    The camping was a little bit noisy at night, but everybody was having fun... Everybody, even the guys on the Indio Police helicopter, flying at 4 am on sunday because of some drinking guys outside (and inside) the camping site and parking lot. (Yes, there where drugs like alcohol inside.)

    I realy enjoyed the experience of being in touch with a lot of amazing bands and djs, and surrounded by beautiful girls from many different countries.

    Tapes N' Tapes, mostly because I absolutely LOVE their EPs, but I thought they had no personality whatsoever on stage. More disappointing than "Worst." =(

    The alcoholic beverages... they need more choices than beer and wine margaritas.
    Red Hot Chilli Peppers set was the worst.... the new music was crap.

    Even though Air was late and played a short set they played well

    Tokyo Police club dissapointed me too too many technical difficulties, and wtf was up with the drummer? He couldnt keep a beat worth shit, especially with the newer songs. The singer even looked embarassed at one point.

    RHCP rocked the house, as did the arctic monkeys, !!!, and the Roots

    my 2 cents
    i agree with tokyo police club....
    but of montreal was only terrible because of the sound system. at some points he just put down his guitar and stopped. it was really a shame...
