    10am?? we were up by 7:30 at the latest because of the heat.

    i love coachella, but god damn i was miserable with allergies. I tried all kinds of medicine but no luck. Claratin helped but there was too much dirt and dried up grass. Im a coachella vet, and its never been that bad

    no way was the Sahara tent too loud- it was set off by itself far enough away from the important stages that they could blast shit as loud as they wanted. plus, it's dance music; it's supposed to be loud.

    The crowed for girl talk. if you were one of the peices of shit who wanted to start a ficking pit instead of dance, let me know, so i can beat the shit out of you, you peice of shit. still, im glad i left early and got a better spot for RHCP, who i was rediculously stoked for. asses to all you message board haters, i love arcade fire but their set sucked and you know it. super boring and not nearly enough funeral.

    i seriously love coachella. Whose camping next year?


    Edit: AND ANOTHER THING!
    Amy Winehouse sucked huge balls. Lauren Hill Should fucking stab her to death and shit on her corpse for such a horrible rendition of that thing. i was kind of into amy winehouse before coachella, but she was horrible.

    peace out

    Peaches are shit. You're an idiot if you were even there to see them. They haven't done anything significant for 20+ years.

    Last I knew, Peaches was the woman and her supporting band...and she a librarian less than 20 years ago. She's been performing for maybe, what 15, max? I'm not sure if you're joking or confused.

    My personal loathes:

    Lily Allen: She lipsyncs. What a fucking joke.
    Um... you can not like her (I think she's just ok)

    However.

    She didn't lipsynch. I was on side stage for it and you must not know what lipsynching is. I'm not saying she's a great vocalist or anything - but your reason for her being bad is just incorrect.

    FOR ME...

    the worst of Coachella was the size - I'm sorry I keep saying this every year and this year they have finally broken the pony. I don't find it enjoyable fighting for a viewing spot every act at every stage.

    60,000 is just too many damn people for those tents - sorry GV unless this is corrected you will lose an eight time veteran.

    I waited 16 years to see Happy Mondays and to see Tony Wilson (cane n' all) introduce them was wonderful.

    Then ......... what a complete and utter train wreck Shaun is. I was 5 rows from the front and noticed the 'prompter being set up. There were difficulties with it and he kept missing his cues and then he started mouthing at the drummer who I thought was going to deck Shaun and then the keyboardist. All this and then there were 3 or 4 guys running around backstage trying to fix whatever was wrong. I left after 25mins, saddened.

    I am so disappointed. I know he wasn't a saint and is a bit messed up at the best of times but this was dire.

    man o' man. Unless you got burned by the Will Call line, got beat up or robbed or had to get medical attention you really can't complain. I mean if 3 days rocking in the desert to such an awesome smorgasboard of music doesn't leave you happy & not worrying about any minor BS, it seems to me you gotta be pretty miserable. There's not much post Coachella that makes me wanna sqauk about the past weekend. & I even got puked on! haha.

    The WTF section: Kings of Leon bad? That set felt like a legit ROCK concert, straight out of Almost Famous or Lords of Dogtown.
    Also, How the hell can anyone say Arcade Fire was bad...just plain ignorant. The only criticism i've ever heard about them comes from tiesto loving tards on this board.[/QUOTE]

    Thank you! KoL rocked! Oh for much such bands! The two hours or so of KoL and Arcade Fire were my personal highlight.

    I found Silversun Pickups underwhelming along with The Good The Bad and The Queen---expected so much more there. Tokyo Police Club was completely underwhelming. Sparklehorse sounded awful. Blonde Redhead--beyond boring.

    The Feeling. Their probably an alright band, but with a large portion of the crowd waiting for Rage, they definately wernt well received.

    Does anyone remember which dj it was that had Journey in their set? my memory is a little hazy....

    At first I thought so too, but then I realized it was more of their overblown efforts to "rock out" with their brand of music that kind of killed it for me. I was just bored even though they were doing their very best to go nuts. One of them also looked to be about 14 years old and a member of the Vienna Boys Choir.

    I actually said Kings of Leon because I personally have never been able to stomach their music, their performance to me was not better then anything else they have done but that is because I don't like them to begin with. And before you say "why the fuck did you see them then?" I needed to get a good spot for Arcade Fire

    Tell me what was up with the vocal track that played when she fucked up on "Nan you're a window shopper" then.

    Granted, I still listen to her music, and maybe she's not exactly a 'lip-syncer', but that moment really ruined her performance for me.

    Too many dj/dance areas now. Feels unbalanced. Couldn't walk practically anywhere without the contstant "unc unc unc". I do think that there should be one outside area for dance music because the Sahara has to be blazing hot. I even liked a few of the dj's in the Dance Dome but felt it was way too loud, the sound bled way far and it was very instrusive. The Do Lab didn't seem to be as invasive, however, it was really kind of in the way when trying to navigate across the field.

    By far, brazilian girls was awful. they changed the songs and added cheap ass annoying sound effects, and they couldnt get their sound right.

    Hurry up and bring out Lupe! God, it was sooooo boring. The Jesus and Mary Chain was actually good- but I almost fell asleep during their performance- I think it's because i only had 3 hours of sleep. But when Bjork came out- it was like I had just had a Red Bull

    This guy told me to stop singing during Bjork's set, when she was performing "Hunter". I wanted to punch him in the face so bad. I said to myself, "Bitch! I didn't pay all this money for nothing- the fucking Queen is on stage. I'm going to sing to sing as much as like along with the other hundreds of crazy motherfuckers."

    How is he going to tell me to not sing, when there are like hundreds of other people singing along too- loudly?!

    Aw, I liked them Especially after standing through Happy Mondays. I've been listening to their early stuff, and what I saw that night was just disgusting in light of their earlier work.
    You came here to steal our great ideas! You've been foiled, we have none.

    All I heard was an echo off the effect mic. - possibly the backing track?

    Agreed.

    So much for Paul T saying the attendance was going to be cut down. He says that every year I guess. Kinda BS if you ask me. Because it is getting a little too packed.

    Ah the golden memories of 99, 01, 02 and 03, ahhhhh.

    This is coming from big Placebo fan ... I thought the Kaiser Chiefs were awesome ... if you were anywhere near the front like I was, there was so much energy and they sounded great. Fantastic set list too ... outside of Rage, I think they were my #2 or 3 act of the weekend.

    I thought they outperformed Placebo ... again, this is coming from a Placebo fan.

    As for the Peter Bjorn & John comments ... the people swarmed out after Young Folks ... predictable, as mentioned, the beginning was rough, but they had energy and I thought they got exponentially better as the set went on, climaxing in a KILLER "Up Against the Wall" to end the set ... they were great.

    Disappointing, Air, for obvious reasons ... the start of the Happy Mondays, train wreck, luckily, Step On saved it for me before I took off for Rage.

    After 2005, The Arcade Fire were destined to let me down .. they were good ... but, there was no was they were going to match their Outdoor Theatre performance for me, which I was ten rows back for.

    The worst, as it always is, are people who talk and scream during sets who have zero interest in seeing the band on stage ... they, are the worst.

    My favorites this year were Placebo or Arctic Monkeys.........the worst was definately Happy Mondays and a totally fukin useless Sean Ryder (don't know why he even bothered to turn up!) - Also, Willie Nelson and his family of inbreds had a jammin session at the expense of both the organisers and their fans.
