    The only reason they aren't in my top five is because of their tardiness and glitches and I have to hold it against their overall set...I loved every shortened and imperfect minute of Justice's set and cannot wait to get the full rockin thing next weekend.

    Not in order

    1. Beirut for the magic and talent
    2. Pulp for the arousal
    3. Black Angles for the fucking best rock show I think I've ever seen
    4. Radiohead for blowing me away and turning me into an obsessed fan
    5. Modeselektor for making me forget that there was anyone else in the tent and making me go berserk, I must have looked like I was going into a seizure during Kill Bill Vol. 4

    HM: Explosions in the Sky, Andrew Bird, St. Vincent was tied with Radiohead but lost in the alphabetical arena, Flying Lotus, GIRLS, Sean Kuti and the Egypt 80, Radiohead was originally up there but I forgot about Beirut somehow, it's unreal how many of these acts I saw in three days

    Finally, someone else puts them on their list. They were my Friday highlight. Such a tight-sounding fantastic band, and they were on at a perfect time (10:50 in the Gobi).

    What an awesome weekend! I'm still trying to wrap my mind around everything that happened. Wish I could afford to do it again in a totally different way. I'm envious of all you bastards that are double dipping.

    My top 5 would have to go to (though this could change upon further reflection)...

    1. Radiohead
    2. Dr Dre & Snoop Dog
    3. Santigold
    4. Jacques Lu Cont
    5. Death Grips

    Honorable Mentions:

    Jeff Mangum (would be in the top five if it wasn't for all the fucktards in the crowd)
    Pulp
    The Weeknd
    Arctic Monkeys
    The Horrors
    M83
    SBTRKT
    Beirut
    Neon Indian
    Fitz & the Tantrums

    1. The Shins: I had a lot emotionally invested in their music, and it all came to a head Friday Night

    2. Madeon: Kid has PHENOMENAL potential, if he keeps his head on straight he's going to be huge

    3. tune-yards: Watching the construction of the loops was amazing, especially the stranger and more complex ones, and then that AHA! moment once the song clicked.

    4. At the Drive In: Cedrick was amazing, and the energy in the crowd was higher than anything, even Refused

    5. Justice: Despite all the imperfections, Justice merged all their music together in a a 40-minute set, silencing the critics of Audio, Video, Disco.

    Honorable Mention:

    Refused
    The Sheepdogs
    Flying Lotus

    In chronological order: Pulp, M83, Bon Iver, Radiohead, Wild Flag.

    I'll also admit having a stupid, fun time at Girl Talk. Mangum was an incredible set marred by audience jackassery.

    They were my highlight as well despite seeing so many other amazing bands. They completely floored me, so surprised no one else has mentioned them, then again their crowd was tiny.

    1. Radiohead: My favorite band since I was 8. Im 18 now and it was my first time seeing them live. I was way in the front and it was magical.
    2. Bon Iver: I thought it was just gonna be Justin Vernon with a guitar playing. I didn't do too much research on their live shows so I was amazed. The whole crowd singing along with the wolves was pretty awesoe too.
    3. Grouplove: I was very front and center singing along with every song. They are so good and fun live. If you like their album watch their set they put on a great show. and getting my grouplove shirt signed after the set was an added bonus.
    4. Justice: Sad their set was cut short but im a total justice fanboy. I freaked out as soon as the cross lit up.
    5. The Head and the Heart: I wasn't really looking forward to this set but my friend really wanted to see them. They are really good live. The girl in the band killed it on her solo in the last song.

    Honorable Mentions: The Shins (If they played Caring is Creepy they would be in the top 5) Andrew Bird, Jeff Mangum, arctic Monkeys, Pulp (I think I was the only one under the age of 25 - 30 at that set)

    Another year and not one foot stepped in the Sahara or near it, except for Thursday night when all was peaceful and quiet to check out the lighting.

    Same bands and same thing happened. Didn't go to the Sahara.

    Were you in the front w Kasabian??? I was right in first row next to a kid I met with a Man City shirt and a tall dude with a white shirt, we were all brit music geeks so we blasted that first row hehe.

    Get loose, get loose!!!!

    1.) Dre and Snoop (by a mile, best live concert I have ever seen next to LCD Soundsystem)
    2.) M83 (best dance party all weekend)
    3.) Jeff Mangum (gut-wrenchingly good)
    4.) Andrew Bird (biggest surprise)
    5.) Bon Iver (best "big" live sound)

    Honorable Mentions to Childish Gambino for delivering really good live cuts of his admittedly mediocre tracks, Head and the Heart for best singalong set, and the first half of araabMUZIK, which would have easily made the top 5 if I had left before he went into dubstep mode.

    1. Dre/Snoop - killed my expectations
    2. Jeff Mangum - pretty much perfect
    3. Radiohead - whoever was upset with this set either 1.) saw a better RH show before, or 2.) is not a fan of RH.
    4. Flying Lotus - he's on another level...
    5. At the Drive-In - the crowd where I ended up almost ruined this for me, but fuck.. NAPOLEON SOLO?! Loved it.


    (Looking at this all lined up, I am in almost disbelief that I got to see all these acts, plus so much more, over the course of a weekend. 2012>2011>2010...)

    honorable mentions: gotye, bon iver, wild flag, seun kuti, greg ginn

    everyone cleared out of gotye after somebody i used to know. so dumb. and there were too many dumbfucks talking during jeff mangum for me to really enjoy it, and from where i was standing at godspeed there was some sound bleed going on. i really wanted to like both of their sets, but i'm glad i got to see both at their own shows, which they were amazing at. now i need to see refused!
