    I certainly hope you're right, it makes me so sad to have never seen them live.

    Best day - day 1 27th April 2007
    The band I travelled 18 hours for and waited along to see - The Jesus And Mary Chain, who had been preceeded by Silversun Pickups and Arctic Monkeys (who I usually am not a fan of but was into it today) and followed by Interpol and Sonic Youth. Camped as well and had the best vegetarian wrap. The night in the camp and following day was pretty ace also
    Ale, Ale, AleAleAle,
    Allesandro....Del Piero,
    He's Sydney's number 10

    Where the sky's blue SYDNEY!

    For me it was Saturday of 08 without a doubt.

    Devotchka>Stephen Malkmus>Kraftwerk>Portishead>Prince

    I was front row for Kraftwerk, Portishead and Prince....seriously one of the best days of my life.

    Saturday of last year:

    Watching the XX and then running over to Bassnectar. It was the funniest dichotomy. We went from standing still and listening to quiet beautiful music to going straight into a raging brutal bass dance party

    Friday '10

    less crowded than the other nights because everyone was still trying to get in or had given up (although the line to get in was a nightmare), and this lineup:

    Specials (and a couple beers)
    Grizzly Bear
    LCD Soundsystem
    Fever Ray (at the rail)
    end of PiL (recovering from Fever Ray)

    the only thing that could have made it better would have been if Grace Jones didn't cancel

    Sat04:
    DIOS, Erase Errata, The Evens, Q and Not U, Beck, Sparta, Pixies, Radiohead

    Just the list of bands I missed that day (/hadn't heard of yet in some cases) astounds me:
    LCD, Black Keys, Rapture, Trail of Dead, Kraftwerk, Kool Keith, MF Doom, Moving Units, Sterolab, etc.

    I did the same thing! Leaving the XX for Bassnectar was the best decision of the weekend.

    Last year was just incredibly solid across the board except for late afternoon Sunday...but, sorry Arcade Fire and Kanye Fans, there have been far better headlining shows. But pre-4pm was never better than it was last year...Love Language, Twin Shadow, Menomena, Black Joe Lewis, Tallest Man On Earth, Fucking Foals (best show of entire fest last year imho), Titus Andronicus, Phosphorescent, !!!, Good Old War, OFF!, Delorean, Joy Formidable...the early hour shows were just ridiculously good last year.

    I've been going since '08 and I'd say Saturday '08 and Friday '09 are top two, and agree Friday '10 was excellent as well with Fever Ray, Jay-Z and Public Image all going head to head and a great LCD Soundsystem subheadliner set, and then I'd probably rate Sunday '09 fourth with a killer early set from Okkervil River and a fantastic close out with awesome sets by X, Public Enemy, My Bloody Valentine, and the epic 3 hour Cure closing set.

    For me, since '08, Saturday '10 was worst day, just one bad prog act after another...though night ended well with Dead Weather and I Think Devo, probably followed by Sunday '08, which was pretty lame until My Morning Jacket got things going at 6pm prior to Roger Waters Home Run Set to close out the weekend.

    Saturday '04 - Any night that ends with Pixies, Kraftwerk and Radiohead with a little Stereolab thrown in, is a great day! (also, that day I saw The Stills, The Rapture, The Black Keys, Beck, Sahara Hotnights, Boozoo Bajou, Junior Senior, Laurent Garnier, MF Doom, Kool Keith)

    Friday - 2009

    Dear and the Headlights -> Aggrolites -> We Are Scientists -> Los Campesinos -> The Black Keys -> Franz Ferdinand -> Leonard Cohen -> Beirut -> (Tail end of Morrisey, this conflict was awful) -> Paul McCartney

    Los Campesinos in their prime, Paul McCartney killing a 3 hour set, Beirut was fantastic, Franz, Black Keys, Cohen, and a solid opening slate. This day was unreal.

    Realistically as a music fan I will never see anything greater than Kraftwerk > Portishead > Prince. Thinking about this actually makes this year's lineup that much more depressing, honestly.

    Too hard to nail down just one day but:

    Sunday April 18th 2010 was pretty non-stop.
    One EskimO, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Talvin Singh, Rusko, MuteMath, Florence and the Machine, 1/2 Charlotte Gainsbourg, 1/2 Jonsi, 1/2 Infected Mushroom, 1/2 Phoenix, Orbital, Thom York, Gorillaz.

    Can't complain about April 26 2008.
    Institubes, DJ Mehdi, Minus the Bear, MGMT, 1/2 Boyz Noize, 1/2 Kate Nash, St Vincent, Death Cab for Cutie, Animal Collective, Portishead, Prince(Don't remember much of him due to Portishead after effects).

    Sooooo many good days, very tough question to reply too accurately.

    ^^^ Agreed on Sunday 2010.

    King Khan > Mutemath > De la Soul > Julian Casablancas > 1/2 Jonsi > Phoenix > camp party > Gorillaz

    Perfect way to cap it off.
