Best of Festivals 2012
 
Let's start the ball rolling with T in the Park - here are my highlights...

- Frank Turner Nowhere near recognised enough. Brilliant musician.
- Chase & Status Blind Faith was awesome.
-
Two Door Cinema Club Not everyone's cuppa, but I like 'em.
- The Vaccines Looking forward to their new album
- The Maccabees Liked everything except their dead persona on stage.
- Miles Kane The man's insane.
- Kasabian Don't like them as much as I used to, but still amazing live.
- Bombay Bicycle Club Getting better and better live.
- The Temper Trap No one quite like them really.
- Ben Howard Another underrated solo artist
- Florence + the Machine This set was simply outstanding.
- Kaiser Chiefs They still got it.

T in the Park
Plenty more to come this year - feel free to post your highlights. :)

Wireless <3

Sway was100x better than I thought he would be
Nicki Minaj was poor but then again I could have told you that before I went
Professor Green = Amazing
Drake was good too
Tulisa was decidedly average
Nero and Labyrinth were brilliant

I was there on the Saturday so there were a few people I'd never heard of but were really good like Dot Rotten

Reading + Leeds next up...

Lets see:

Bombay Bicycle Club - awesome again
Crystal Castles - fucking insane. Not in Love always gets me going.
Dry the River - pretty decent but I find them a little too slow/sombre at a festival.
Florence + the Machine - I preferred their performance at T, but still pretty good.
Foo Fighters - hats off to Mr Grohl
Foster the People - Nice and happy.
Green Day - Oh wow. They've definitely seen better days, but it's nice to see they're up and doing stuff again.
Kaiser Chiefs - do a pretty good cover of Pinball Wizard.
Kasabian - quite liked this performance actually. Better than when I saw them live.
Mystery Jets - nice to see they have some new stuff out.
Spector - Definitely underrated.
The Black Keys - Always been a big fan, and they didn't disappoint.
The Courteeners - Don't quite understand the hype for these guys, but still great.
The Cribs - Nice set.
The Cure - Pretty much the same as T
The Gaslight Anthem - Can't get enough of this band really.
The Hives - Fucking mental. Can't emphasise enough how bonkers this band is.
The Horrors - Pretty good set, but I find they lack some stage presence.
The Maccabees - Bit too similar to all their live performances. Need something to keep things fresh.
The Vaccines - Great stuff here.
Tribes - Really want these guys to hit the big time, as they most certainly deserve it.
Two Door Cinema Club - Love this band so much. Especially Sleep Alone.


Awesome line-up this year, and hope it's the same next year.
