Last year I went alone and ended up gaining new friends (befriended lot of fellow Coachellans in the airports, planes, Polo field, parking lot, lines, stages and at the hotel I stayed in) & seeing > 60 of my favorite acts (with minimal rest, sights-seeing, people watching, eating in lines and well-planned/timed pissing ... really I had ton of energy then).
I've only seen amazing full sets of the following phenomenal bands: Be Your Own Pet, Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, Daft Punk, The Go! Team and Editors. I also immensely enjoyed The Zutons, Metric and Giant Drag that I spent lot of unplanned time in seeing them.
Best Unplanned Decision I Made in '06: Abandoned Depeche Mode early on their set and getting front row in the epic Daft Punk show and watching the full set of The Go! Team
Biggest Regrets in '06 But: Completely missing Massive Attack and Mogwai sets but I saw the amazing full live sets of Editors and The Go! Team
1. I want to experience Coachella '07 differently this time. I'm going with a friend and camping onsite this time. I'll probably spend more time relaxing & meeting people (would love to meet both The Arcade Fire and RATM fans coming from all over the world especially my friends who are coming over from UK and Europe and/or some good people in the board here) but I still would watch only full sets of my must-see/big-time favorite (new) never before-seen acts.
2. Like what I did during Tool's (and Madonna ) sets, I'll watch the soon to be historic, epic and "fun" RATM's reunion from a far distance.
RATM = Tool + Madonna
