For me, 2009 was my favorite year (not lineup, but experience) aka the first year I got the full Coachella experience of attending all three days, camping, the whole deal. Climbed the fence Thursday night to watch Paul McCartneys's soundcheck, danced onstage for MIA, and camped out at the mainstage all day to be up front for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (one of my favorite bands)
this. Great lineup. Also, the last year when crowds were still small but amenities had been improved

Tossup between 2008 and 2011. 08 was my first 3 day year and the lineup was probably my favorite to date, and last year was just a blast, Tallest Man on Earth and Arcade Fire really made it a special weekend.
for me it was 2008 the year of PRINCE! it was so much fun but it was even better because it was the year that i went ALONE with none of my friends i camped out with the SOLO campers group and had a blast with a bunch of people enjoyed the camp grounds sooooo much coachella is trully the best time of the year going alone also made it awesome because i didnt have to settle to watch whatever show my friend wanted to see i could choose my sets to watch and had a blast god bless coachella lol
06 was an eye opener
07 was just a crazy party
08 was THE PEAK of my coachella: musically and emotionaly
09 was all about seeing Paul McCartney outside of that. . . .
10 was kind of a clusterfuck but still fun
11 was the comeback, so much fun maybe because 10 lowered my expectations
...my experience was eerily similar to yours... too similar is you ask me. Are you my doppelganger?
When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.
