    Default Top 5 Weekend 2 Sets

    Because us Weekend 1ers want to live vicariously through you.
    My old account "Mikey1313666" is down for whatever reason.

    Sounds like Jaar dropped the 15 minute slow build intro..curious to see if he jumped up on more people's lists.

    Number 1 was Hans Zimmer no question. The other 4 are in no particular order since I don't care to try to rank them:

    1. Hans Zimmer
    2. Warpaint
    3. Car Seat Headrest
    4. Zipper Club
    5. Little Dragon

    I'll skip the honorable mentions since it would encompass almost everything else I saw except a few sets that I found disappointing.

    Bon Iver bringing out Jenny and Bruce Hornsby was super cool. Thought Lady Gaga did a good job considering she had less than two months to put together a show.

    2. Moderat
    3. Breakbot

    1. King Gizzard - First set of the weekend for me and it got the energy going properly. Sound was better than expected.
    2. Kendrick Lamar - Absolutely loved the old Kung Fu visuals and his stage presence was lightyears better than his FYF performance.
    3. Moderat - Mind blowing. I'd pay to see them again in a heartbeat.
    4. Little Dragon - Really dominated the Gobi tent. Loved how the new material translated live.
    5. Radiohead - Enjoyed the set list a lot even tho there was plenty of 2012 overlap. Great visuals, great sound for the most part.

    HM: Majid Jordan - One of my gf's choices and I was pleasantly surprised after watching the last 40 min of his set.

    Caught all or part (mostly all, just a few partials) of 36 sets, doing 14 on Friday, 12 Saturday, 10 Sunday. Enjoyed every single set, from Dudu Tassa noon on Friday till finishing with surprise guest Rufus Du Sol closing the Do Lab Sunday night. Yeah, I'm fucking exhausted.

    Only somewhat disappointed in one set - by Car Seat Headrest. Love their quirky indie tracks like Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales, but their lo-fi garage rock not so much.

    Friday in particular was so good musically from start to finish that it was one of my very best days ever at Coachella (this was my 10th fest). Saturday and Sunday were nearly as good, so picking just 5 sets out of 36 is tough, but here goes (in no order, maybe a somewhat different list if I did this tomorrow or next week):

    Royksopp
    Jagwar Ma
    the Avalanches
    Hans Zimmer
    Porter Robinson & Madeon

    HM (other sets that weren't just good, but could probably wrestle some of my top 5 out of position if I thought about it more): Radiohead, Justice, Little Dragon, SOHN, Floating Points, Bon Iver, the xx, Father John Misty, Tycho, Breakbot.

    Bonobo would make the list if it wasn't for that sun-blasted set time on the Main during a nearly 100F day. Even Lady Gaga's set was incredibly fun and I'm not a mainstream pop fan at all.

    Are ya'll not placing New Order on your lists because you didn't see em, or because they weren't in your top 5?

    Guessing the former by the appearance of a lot of Kendricks

    Best Coachella I've been too performance wise even though I've only been going since 2013, I'm sure my 5 would be different if I didn't split so many other sets.

    I saw them, but I saw them last time they were here too. The visuals were awesome, but I guess I'm a little jaded.

    Week 2 wins again. Better crowd, better sets. Everything runs smoother in week 2. Except for one thing... no drones in week 2! That was BS.

    2) Moderat
    3) Hans Zimmer
    4) New Order
    5) The XX

    Royksopp (Just..dreamy. I do wish What Else is There was more dancey.)
    Future Islands (So cathartic-I was the girl sobbing while dancing during Lighthouse.)
    The XX (Pure Magic, On Hold and Loud Places-yaaasssssss!!)
    Capital Cities (They fucking KILLED it! That Porno for Pyros cover was so fucking delicious.)
    Bishop Briggs/Sofi TUKKER (Both acts brought the same level of awesomeness, therefore tied in 5th)

    HM: These 3 acts in the Sonora (Current Joys, Quitapenas, Diamante Electrico). Every time I stopped in there, there was some great fucking music being performed, none of which I'd heard of and the above mentioned 3 really brought it.

    1. Justice - came in with tempered expectations and was just taken aback by how hard they went. very good track sequencing and selection
    2. Bon Iver - I wish I went both weekends just to see both of these shows
    3. Radiohead - bit of a weird setlist. low-key production. STILL - its the dam head. All I Need / Reckoner / Fake Plastic Trees / no audio probs
    4. Hans Zimmer - incredible, once-in-a-lifetime kind of show. w1 already knows
    5. Nicolas Jaar - came out early, started right into the good stuff. apparently w1 had the usual ambient/drone intro? w2 he kept it moving right along with Swim like 5 minutes in, which was a pleasant surprise. ended with a really cool ~10 minute version of Space Is Only Noise. I'm glad DJ Snake didn't drown too too much out

    HM: New Order, Belleville Three, Moderat, Porter & Madeon, the xx (surprisingly so, at least for me), King Gizzard & Lizard Wizard, Thundercat, Royksopp, Hinds, BICEP, Tycho

    Misc:
    Surfbort - not sure if anyone else saw them but yheesh what a way to start fry day

    Royksopp vs. Moderat - left during the kinda weird live/reworked version of What Else Is There? and got to Moderat 1/2way through A New Error. Glad I heard Monument and saw the crazy Sahara production, but Moderat sounded better and had a better crowd, IMO

    Toots & Maytals - actually pretty good and in a perfect time slot. caught last 10 min. not sure where I read on here that they don't perform well anymore
