Greatest Festival Moments in Rock and Roll History: Coachella 2006

Festival Moment

Daft Punk at Coachella, 2006

Daft Punk's first appearance at Coachella, in 2006, was a sea change for Electronic Dance Music (EDM). The French duo played a perfectly-executed set synced to a mind-blowing multimedia presentation and surrounded by their now legendary "pyramid" art installation. Daft Punk's show raised the bar for EDM production values, challenging other artists to greater feats of experimentation and audience engagement.
