Coachella 2011 Recap

29 Apr

For me, it was an event categorized more by experiences than music. With that being said, here’s my take and a few jams dedicated to the best party around.

Friday began with some heavy sunshine and even heavier dubstep. As usual, 12th Planet threw down an energetic, crowd-pleasing set. Dubstep’s American embassador has great taste for new music and tons of stage presence. He stood on the DJ booth a few times during the slower points of the set to get the crowd amped. I have yet to be disappointed by one of 12th Planet’s performances.

I was able to catch bits of Excision and Skrillex‘s sets between trips to the beer garden. Both kept the crowd jumping with their bass-filled soundtracks to nondescript horror movies. The live collaboration between Skrillex and a few members of Korn was a highlight.

After a house version of “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”, the Sahara tent shifted gears for the breakthrough hip-hop group, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Despite all the negative press regarding their performance, Odd Future was one of my favorite acts all weekend. Reminiscent of an old-school punk show, the group
did their best to incite a riot. The chaos of the set featured chants of “Wolf Gang!” and “Fuck the Police!”, crowd surfing, moshpits, some daring stunts by Tyler the Creator, and all around anarchy. Shout out to Big Tuna for keeping the party alive during this one!

Tyler the Creator-French (Toro y Moi Remix)


Once OFWGKTA ended, I had a brief time grab another drink, catch my breath, and enjoy some of A-Trak‘s feel-good combination of hip-hop and house. The transition between a cut-up, scratch-happy version of “All of the Lights” and “6’ 7′” was definitely a highlight.

What can I say about Afrojack that hasn’t been said already? This was the third Afrojack set I have had the pleasure to experience and it was unquestionably the best, and my favorite set of Coachella 2011. His ability to combine original, mind-blowing music with flawless, extended build-ups has always left me amazed. A testament to this was the presence of none other than Sir Paul McCartney. If music royalty has the good sense enjoy your set, your doing something right. I strive to think this is a sign of the upcoming dominance of electronic music.

Afrojack and Adele- Rolling in the Right (DEFEP Bootleg)



After a few shenanigans, I made it over the main stage to catch rock heavy-hitters, The Black Keys and Kings of Leon. Both bands tore the main stage up, with slashing guitar melodies and true southern rock style. I can’t wait to catch The Black Keys again at Bonnaroo!

The last portion of the night was dedicated to raging with some talented DJs. Boys Noize was on his game as usual, keeping the Sahara Tent going with his crazy, German techno sound. Hearing him drop his Daft Punk remix was a highlight for me. House legends, The Chemical Brothers, were given the main stage honor and they took full advantage of it. The HEAVY bass the stage had to offer, accompanied by some incredible production, made for one spectacular performance. Here’s another link to a track with the best of both worlds.
The Chemical Brothers- Swoon (Boys Noize Remix)


On Saturday, the weekend took a turn for the stranger. As such, I can no longer give a detailed play by play like Friday. Here are some of the highlights:

Trampled by Turtles fired up the main stage early with their own fast-paced blend of folk, country, and rock. Despite being a band more traditionally suited to play Stagecoach than Coachella, they put on an extremely enjoyable show.
Trampled by Turtles-Wait So Long


Two Door Cinema Club was a cool change of pace. Their light-hearted, indie rock style fit perfectly in the afternoon, and the crowd was loving them.

Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work The Twelves Remix


Chuckie was the only electronic act I caught all day, but he was no disappointment. If there is any dutch house artist comparable to Afrojack, it’s Chuckie. His set, filled with deep bass and toy gun synths, certainly kept the Sahara Tent happy.

Carolina Marquez-Wicked Wow (Chuckie Extended Mix)


The last act to perform on Saturday I feel qualified to discuss is Mumford & Sons. The fast rising popularity of the band is well supported by the serious talent of the members and great music they release. They put on a flawless performance, jamming on each song, and using silence to build tension for their epic crescendos. And with the inclusion of a brass section as backup, it couldn’t have gotten any better.



Sunday was a day I will never forget. It was filled with wandering, see-saw riding, picture taking, H&M tent chilling, sunset watching, great music and amazing friends. Here are a few jams in dedication to the best, most emotion-filled day I have had in a long time.

The Strokes- Under Cover of Darkness

Jack Beats- All Night (feat. John B)

Ratatat-Allure (Jay-Z & Notorious B.I.G.)
