Combination here of fab memories, bands that hooked me straightaway, and honourable mentions for either the crowd or the performer engaging with the crowd. Hard to cut it down, been going since 2010.

1 - The Rolling Stones (2013)
2 - The Kills (2011) - first time I'd ever heard them - been a fan since
3 - Editors (2013) - Papillon at the front
4 - The National (2010) - hooked from that moment on
5 - Motorhead (2015)
6 - Metallica (2014)
7 - The Hives (2013) - on the other stage, got everyone to sit down in the mud
8 - PJ Harvey (2016)
9 - Mik Artistik (2010-17) - gotta be there!
10 - Queens of the Stone Age (2011) - what a brilliant evening on the other stage
11 - Kasabian (2014)
12 - ZZ Top (2016)
13 - Patti Smith (2015)
14 - Royal Blood (2017)
15 - Dolly Parton (2014)
16 - Amanda Palmer (2013) - for the crowd surfing
17 - Imelda May (2010)
18 - The Bad Shepherds (2010)
19 - Blondie (2014) - I was at the back and for some reason the whole crowd started bouncing up and down
20 - Jessie J (2011) - broken leg, getting that little girl to sing brilliantly

I'd waited all my goddamn life to see Mick Taylor play with the Rolling Stones and it was still better than I thought it'd be.

Still can't get over how utterly euphoric that Rolling Stones set was

It really was the best ever. In my lifetime I have been very fortunate to have been at some amazing things but the only thing that comes anywhere close to the anticipation of the set was working at the Olympics on the last night in the Olympic stadium before MO's final, and even that didn't come as close.

Shit, can't believe I forgot Patti Smith

tbh mate, an old lady falling on her arse, spitting on the stage, and singing happy birthday to an auld bald geezer isn't everybody's idea of fun

and her choice of setlist made a mockery of the don't pee on the land campaign
