Knowing what you know, like or love now, and could go back in time, what would you have done differently?
I'll start. I've been attending every year since '08.
Calvin Harris (Live) - this one hurts. big time. especially considering he'll probably never perform live with a band again. sigh. Portishead was pretty damn good + I ended up getting a super sweet spot for the greatest Coachella set of all time for me and many others (Prince) so bittersweet 'twas in retrospect.
Roger Waters - although the Sahara was a ton of fun at that time (Simian Mobile Disco=>Chromeo=>Justice) but missed out on legendary set? maybe? doesn't seem to get the same praise as Prince's set anyways.
Fever Ray/The Whitest Boy Alive - opted for Hova (nostalgia factor, been loving him for past 20 years) and thoroughly enjoyed his set, Beyonce coming out was icing on the cake BUT these are 2 incredible acts/performances from what I heard and watched footage of afterwards that I might never have the opportunity to see again. I truly discovered TWBA after Coachella and I'd kill to see them now. double sigh.
Die Antwoord - would have been super cool to see their US debut and the crowd's reactions. But instead, I was at Dead Weather watching a mediocre set being blasted by Tiesto's bass. Since caught DA multiple times and they just destroy live. every. time.
Thom Yorke???!!! - WTF was I between 9pm and 9:30pm? (end of Orbital and start of Plastikman) Anyways, clearly should have been watching Yorkie with his Flea on the Outdoor. Atoms For Peace at TI last year was a very nice consolation prize though. :-) Nothing could have topped Plastikman, for those who were there from start to finish know. ;-)
Florence/Julian/Jonsi - not sure how I managed to miss all 3 of these completely. I somehow weathered the Club 75 shitstorm for most of this timeframe but what a fucking disaster/mistake that was!
Arcade Fire (full set) - I made the mistake of bouncing out from AF to catch Scissor Sisters, but wasn't feeling it after half a set or so and bounced back to AF, just in time for ball drop ;-) Dumb move on my part for not sticking around for entire, what would become widely renowned as an epic set. This year made up for it though :-)
Jimmy Cliff, Gary Clark Jr, Arctic Monkeys - Left for the campgrounds with my female friend at the time for some other more intimate tent-related fun
Modeselektor - watched Florence with the female friend and although I love Flo on album, I couldn't connect with this performance whatsoever, would have much rather danced my ass off to Mode and be treated to Thom's surprise guest appearance
Ben Howard - got a really late start on Saturday.
Disclosure - although Eric Prydz blew me away into blissful oblivion as he always manages to do, plus the insane laser/duststorm show in the Sahara :-) buuuttttt, this was Disclosure's really breakthrough set by the sounds of it and it looked unbelievably fun from the footage I've seen and roster of guest vocalists. Not sure I would have done it differently though if I could go back in time. Hmm. 2 of my favorite electronic artists right there.
Wu-Tang - watched them up until 10 mins or so before Parov Stelar was scheduled to start and proceeded to stare at an empty stage for the next 30 or so mins yeah fuck that, would have loved to seen the full Wu-Tang set.
Flume - should have stayed where I was after Woodkid, tried to return to catch some of Flume's set on way to The Knife and couldn't believe how overflowing the Gobi was, complete cluster$@#! This is a big regret of mine for this year. Everyone I talked to raved about this set.
Kid Kudi - caught last 3 songs from inside Main Stage/Outdoor Beer Garden, sounded amazing and crowd was going off. Heard afterwards it was one of his better sets and a top tier set for the weekend for many attendees.
Beck - ran to locker to grab hoodie before Disclosure, god damn it was chilly, sounds like one of his better sets from what I've gathered.
Ok, your turn!
