2008’s lineup is quite possibly Coachella’s most ambitious, with enormous sets by both Prince and Roger Waters performing Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety. 2008 was also clearly the year of long-absent comebacks, including Portishead, The Verve, and Love & Rockets. 2008 was also a year flush with future like Calvin Harris, St. Vincent, MGMT and Mark Ronson staking their claim. Oh and uh, Dwight Yokham.
Reunited and it feels so good: Portishead, Love & Rockets, The Verve, the Breeders, Sasha & Digweed
Future BFD (Big Fucking Deal): MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Diplo, St. Vincent, Sia, Mark Ronson, The National
Canada represent: Tegan and Sara, Holy Fuck, Chromeo, Deadmau5, Stars
