    I feel like 2011 was the best because I missed it. Of the ones I've been to, 2013 was probably the most stacked. 2007 was also pretty strong, but first-year-bias.

    After looking at all of these posters again, I went with 2009... McCartney, the Cure, MBV, Moz, Leonard Cohen, Franz, the Chemical Brothers, TV on the Radio, the Presets, A Place to Bury Strangers, Fleet Foxes, MSTRKRFT, MIA, the Killers, Liars, Ariel Pink, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Paul Weller, Throbbing Gristle, PB&J, the Orb, Public Enemy, the Kills, the Horrors, Brian Jonestown Massacre and even Henry Rollins spoken word. That year had a little bit of everything.

    I went through every lineup and rated each day on a scale of 1-10, and then averaged out the days, then sorted them all, and 2006 came out on top.

    Just looking at future star power, saturday 2007 had three future headliners (Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, and Black Keys) as well as a sure thing would-be-headliner (LCD Soundsystem). I don't think any other day matches that in terms of future headliners in ine day.

    The four lines after the 2011 headliners make me weep. Plus that was the last year of one weekend. So motherfucking ecstatic I got to experience it.

    06 is just stupid good. I wish I knew what I know now in 2010. Favorite I attended was 2011. But I had the most fun in 14...go figure.

    Saturday 2008 was legendary, but Friday and Sunday had a lot of downtime for me.

    Naw dude, 2011 was not the best. Not in my top 3. Probably not in my top 5.

    You dizzy fools must be ridiculously high, because 2009 is the clear choice. That Sunday was as close to a perfect festival day as we'll ever see.

    2004 handily beats most of these lineups as well.

    This

    I can't even imagine spending that much time glued to the rail for MBV>YYY>The Cure for any other line up. Also, the ending of the Cure's set as the ending of the festival for me has never been topped.

    Radiohead made their first appearance, though, in 2004...?

    Yeah the huge/rare acts that year, plus the vast undercard, were just about perfect.

    And that was the best ending to any of the dozens of festivals I've been to. Everything else just ends in a whimper.

    Correct. 2004 is by far my favorite Coachella, followed by 2003. Those weren't options though on this poll...so I went with 2013.
    Coachella '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12 W1, '13 W1&2, '14 W1, '15 W1&2, '16 W1

    Too hard to pick just one. Favorite moments over the years include: watching Paul McCartney soundcheck with maybe 100 other people on the field in 2009, Kasabian destroying the Mojave in 2012(still listen to the bootleg almost weekly), meeting Josh Homme and Dave Grohl in 2010, seeing Daft Punk and Madonna from 5 feet away in '06, watching Gorillaz(seeing half the Clash on stage together? Holy shit.) while sitting next to Jay-Z and Beyoncé in 2010, Queens of the Stone Age from sidestage last year, Prince in '08, my wife and kids coming out for a day to hang out in 2013, all the family I've been able to bring over the years including wife, sister, sister in law, 3 nephews, few cousins, their friends. That's what really stands out, the fun I've had with the ones I love most, being able to blow their minds with something that has been so special to me the last 11 years. The lineup has always been secondary to that.

    If Kasabian doesn't do a Bay Area show around Coachella I may consider heading down for a day this year. Fingers crossed I can stay close to home, though.

    Oh yeah, another top moment: about to go to bed in the rv around 2am Saturday night 2013. All of a sudden I get a text from Dani seeing if I wanted to meet up. When Dani texts you say yes, haha. Got her directions to our rig, she showed up along with Mike ivankay and a couple others. Got drinks ready and we did a golf cart caravan over to the campgrounds. My first foray over there in all my years attending. It was insane! Not sure how people do that for a whole weekend. Spent a few hours hanging out at the party and then crazy dusty gold cart ride to the back lot to drop people at their cars. Drove by Phoenix sitting at their bus back there and nailed them all with a huge cloud of dust, whoops, haha. Such a great night that almost wasn't. Glad I answered the call!
