Best Festival Performances: As Chosen By You



We've been thinking a lot about the festival seasons of years gone by recently. From those painful experiences of erecting tents in muddy fields, before cracking open that first lukewarm can of beer, to our first ever cases of the festival blues.

We thought we'd ask our followers about their stand-out festival memories, so yesterday, we asked you all about the best festival performance you've ever seen. We've put together our favourites here - take a look! Is yours included? Let us know what your favourite performance was!

Napalm Death: Glastonbury, 2017

Thomas W said: Linkin Park at Download 2014 or Napalm Death Glastonbury 2017

Elise C said: Definitely Napalm at Glasto . That was the highlight of the festival for me . My partner however was not impressed!

Slipknot: Sonisphere 2011

Tom H said: Absolutely furious, fast and unrelenting. Yet the ending with a long tribute to Paul Gray was truly heartbreaking.

Samantha A said: The rain before they started and in the middle, shed many a tear I believe.

Muse: V Festival Chelmsford, 2008.

Garry H said: Not necessarily the best musically (though pretty damn good), but the whole show - complete with alien invasion laser show - was awesome.

David Bowie: Move Festival, 2002

Shaun B said: Suede were on before him and played their set in torrential rain, then just as Bowie stepped on stage the rain stopped. Opening with 'Life on Mars?' and closing with 'Ziggy Stardust', he held the audience in the palm of his hand.

The Prodigy: Isle Of Wight Festival, 2009

Paula G said: Oh my god, I could hardly get out my tent the next day! Pure dead, brilliant!

My Chemical Romance: Reading Festival 2011

Katya G said: Very seldom that the audience and band is one. It was just pure fun being in the crowd and dancing the night away

The Who: Isle Of Wight Festival, 1970

Colin S said: Has to be Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and The Who at Isle of Wight 1970. Amazing!

Mumford and Sons: T In The Park, 2013

Lianne P said:  Mumford and Sons at T in the Park. What do you reckon Hannah W?

Hannah W said: 100%! Chase and Status a close second for me.

Two Door Cinema Club: Leeds Festival, 2017

Amy C said: Muse or Two Door Cinema Club, both 2017. Glorious sunshine and happy people everywhere.

Supergrass: T In The Park, 1995

Claire S said: The Prodigy, Black Grape & Supergrass. T in the Park '95

Darren H said: What a great festival that was. I saw Corduroy there for the first time... they blew me away.
