I only went to a couple of festivals this year and while ATP was as great as it always is the Leeds Festival was pretty awful on the whole, though The Hold Steady and Dinosaur Jr both put in spectacular sets. I don’t think we’ll be going back any time soon. Anyway, my top 5 festival sets were:

  1. The Hold Steady @ Leeds Festival, August 24th
  2. Nick Cave / Grinderman @ ATP, April 28th
  3. Low @ ATP, April 28th
  4. Dinosaur Jr @ Leeds Festival, August 26th
  5. Magnolia Electric Co. @ ATP, April 27th
