Out of the 'big' headliners, these stand out for me:

Iggy & The Stooges - 07 (Other)

Leonard Cohen - 08 (Pyramid)

Neil Young - 09 (Pyramid)

Prodigy - 09 (Other)

James - 16 (Other - opened festival morning after Brexshit referendum result)

Stormzy - 17 (Other)

Flaming Lips - 17 (Park)

Lizzo - 19 (West Holts)

So many others on smaller stages........Alabama 3 - 14 (Glade) was a mega-highlight.

So many to think I will need to gather my thoughts but I'd say Neil Young in 09 and the Foos in 17 were my two favourite Pyramid headliners. LCD on the Other in 16 were sublime and the George Clinton/Funkadelic/Sly on West Holts mash-up in 15 are other standouts. Goat in the Park in 15 is another. White Lies John Peel 09

16 - LCD Soundsystem 

No need for an explanation here, pretty much universally regarded as a worldly of a set.

17 - Radiohead 

First time seeing them live, at my favourite place on Earth. Played pretty much everything I wanted to hear. OK Computer heavy (my favourite album of all time) including Exit Music (my favourite track on OKC) which made me cry. Near perfection. 

19 - IDLES 

Life affirming stuff. So good we patched Tame Impala on the Other to go straight into the naughty corner, make sure we were in near the Truth Stage to see them again.
