I didn't get to visit the Coachella festival this your (or any other year for that matter) but I did follow it closely through it's fantastic live video feed on youtube.
One of the most definite highlights for me were Pulp, preforming on their reunion tour and doing the really best of their magnificent repertuar.
It was also a chance to see Jarvis Cocker in action with his riveting stage presence.
Unlike other outstanding performers like Jagger or Iggy Pop which relay on their physical abilities, Cocker's forte is in his verbal capabilities and the way he makes the whole show a complete and continuous narrative.
Here is the whole set, it's worth your while.
