Coachella 2011 the best moments

Are you suffering from post-Coachella blues? I know I am. Thanks to the internet and Youtube, I was able to witness some of the awesomeness of the festival! I wish i was able to go. Why does it have to be so far away? If you’ve missed the live stream of the festival, don’t fret! I’ve got you covered.  I’ve collected some of the highlights of the 3 day festival for you!!

Ce Lo Green’s performed his hit tune “Fuck you” and “Crazy” as performed with Gnarles Barkley.  The performance was subpar for this talented vocalist.  He was well aware of this fact and apologized to the crowd! Part-way through the band’s intro to a cover of Journey’s “Don’t stop believing” he got the signal to wrap it up. The band seemed rather unhappy about it but I guess that’s what happens when you show up 30 min late for your performance.  I bet that caused the festival organizers a few near heart-attacks! I bet his cover would have been awesome!

Two Door Cinema Club threw an awesome dance party at Coachella. They are most definitely one of the best new artists on the block.

Whenever Montreal’s super group, Arcade Fire, plays the song" Wake Up", it gives me goosebumps. It is amazing how this song has the power to bring everyone together in chorus. Enjoy their performance from day 2 of the festival.

The Black Keys delivered a compelling performance at the festival as usual. It was the drummer, Patrick's birthday.- Happy birthday Patrick!!!

Here is another video of their performance.

On the last day of the festival, The Strokes had such a charismatic appearance. The webstream was classic in black and white, giving the performance a vintage feel.  The band performed a number of their hit tunes. Here’s a video of the last 14 mins of their performance. 

If you have footage or found videos of anything else awesome from Coachella 2011, please share it with us!
