    Default Would we say that Coachella 2015's most enjoyed artist was....

    Caribou?

    After reading the majority of threads I have found he was the most in people's top 5 lists. Other honourable mentions go to AC/DC, St. Vincent, Jack White. Would you think he could be the unofficial act to have seen at 2015?

    Overall 2015 was a great experience but something about the Caribou show was just beyond what I expected.

    AC/DC was honestly one of the best performances at Coachella I've ever seen. The only 2 off the top of my head I enjoyed more would be McCartney and Prince.

    Most enjoyable headliner since 09.

    Kasabian seemed to be in a ton of top 5's, as well.

    I had just seen Caribou perform in SF days before Coachella and he still easily made my top 5 shows at Coachella.

    I don't get the Caribou love. It's really nice beats over some soft spoken dude.

    Has no one mentioned Gessafelstien? Massively entertaining set. Also, not really getting the huge boner for AC/DC here. They were alright. Great performers, but that doesn't really change the fact that 80% of their songs sound pretty much exactly the same. I had a blast for about 45 minutes, then got bored and went to Squarepusher.
    Anything is possible...

    It's like Motorhead. If you write one great song over and over, there isn't really a problem with that.

    Tycho;

    After a very long, fulfilling Friday and Saturday, I was most looking forward to Tycho and certainly expected their set to top my list. I was thoroughly impressed from start to finish as they transitioned from song to song without losing any energy on stage or from the crowd. I can imagine some of you were thinking 'I'll miss this set, it'll just put me to sleep', but it was so far from that. Absolutely my most enjoyable artist of the weekend.

    Listen, fuckface, my buddy and I lasted four-to-five songs (with one of my favorite boardies I might add ["muah!"]) before getting bored out of our gourds and moving on to something waaaaaaay more interesting.

    I personally agree with the AC/DC statement but i found gessafelstein to be kind of the same way. Felt like I listened to one 40 minute song. For me Axwell^Ingrosso was so unbelievably fun and crazy. The energy was like nothing I had seen before and never stopped throughout the set. Ugh just makes me want to go back!

    I don't know why anyone would even compare Cut Copy and Caribou. Completely different styles of music.
