I added links to bands I've seen and loved live. I put plain Bold tags to bands that I've seen and thought were not so great live. I put *'s next to ones I haven't seen live but I'd be excited about seeing live. I am always a bit underwhelmed by the Coachella Line up in the last few years. I think they can try harder to secure bigger headliners and better bands in general. Even if they had one night with all the bands I selected I wouldn't be that excited!
