I won't be attending Coachella this year.
In fact, I have never gone and can't imagine a world in which I would. My OCD and bad back simply won't allow it. The last such event I attended was the Lolapalooza tour that featured Smashing Pumpkins and the Beastie Boys. I was younger then, and we had backstage passes, so I avoided a lot. But I suppose that if I could combine the bands I like from each day into one single day, I might be tempted. Based on this year's 3-day line-up, here is my dream 1-day concert:
PAUL MCCARTNEY (but only if he knows he's playing a "Garden Party" and doesn't try to be current), MORRISSEY (see McCartney), FRANZ FERDINAND, LEONARD COHEN (how do you say no?), CONOR OBERST (but mostly cuz I want to see if I can get him to blow me backstage), BLACK KEYS (mostly cuz I have their CD but haven't been able to really enjoy it. Maybe seeing them live would help), THE HOLD STEADY, PEANUT BUTTER WOLF STEVE AOKI, THE AGGROLITES, MOLOTOV, THE KILLERS, AMY WINEHOUSE, TV ON THE RADIO, THIEVERY CORPORATION, HENRY ROLLINS (but mostly cuz I want to see if I can blow him backstage), THE DRIVE BY TRUCKERS (cuz they pretty much stole my act), TURBONEGRO HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR (cuz I'm a big homo) THE BOB MOULD BAND (cuz I'm a big homo), THE CURE (cuz I'm a big OLD homo), PAUL WELLER, PETER, BIJORN & JOHN X, PUBLIC ENEMY, BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, and THE MEXICAN INSTITUTE OF SOUND.
So, that's my dream line-up. It's a pretty long list, so I'd need all acts to keep their sets short. My attention span doesn't really allow for much more than 30 minutes of live music at a time anyway. And I'd want a few stages, so that each band starts up just after the other has finished. And I'd need seats. And a roof. And my own private restroom. And I'd have to be able to walk to the venue. But other than that, I'm in!
