    1. GY!BE

    The most uncompromising and truly musical performance I saw all weekend.


    2. Pulp

    My most anticipated set. I was singing so loud my voice was hoarse for hours afterwards.


    3. Jeff Mangum

    In a festival full of overachieving stage gimmicks this stripped down performance was a Godsend. His request to turn off all cameras and recording devices made it that much more personal.


    4. Radiohead

    I was really impressed with how TKOL translated to a live setting. Perfect soundtrack for a warm night under the stars.


    5. At the Drive-In

    Pure musical energy. I was worried that their performance was going to be a bit stale given their reservation to reunite in the past, but I had no reason to be.

    1. wild beasts - all the king's men. i was super excited to see them. i knew nothing about them, other than their two most recently released album's music. i was so pleasantly surprised, especially during this song (and they aint bad on the eyes either, after watching tom fleming sing this song: immediate crush. not your typical hottie, but the way he sang...)
    Hi-Five! (see the same thread for weekend 1)

    Exit Music is pretty much the only thing that I regret about not being there for by only going to W1.

    After some ruminating on the matter, top 5...

    1. Jeff Mangum- The songs were perfect, but I also just respect the hell out of the guy. I thought it was really a stand-up gesture to make sure people were OK in the crowd during his weekend 2 set. During "Two Headed Boy" I was misty eye'd, and was hardly even deterred by the less invested people around me.

    2. Refused- I was 15 all over again, but it hardly felt like a guilty pleasure. They totally owned (sound issues and all) and I could not have asked for a better set. My voice was shot for the rest of the weekend after their set, and it was so worth it.

    3. Radiohead- Never disappointing, and I was beyond happy to hear "Kid A" live. Great set.

    4. At the Drive-In- Just as with Refused, Jeff Mangum, and GSYBE I was ecstatic when the line-up was announced and ATDI was on it (truly my dream line-up). I love ATDI's music maybe more than any of those other artists', but between the lack luster crowd around me, and Cedric mostly squawking the melodies (sorry, he was so much better when he would let his voice rip) I could not say this was the best show for the weekend. Even so, the band seemed into it (even Omar, in his own way) and they played an amazing set.

    5. The Rapture- What a great surprise! I was looking forward to their set, but I didn't realize it would be such a great time.

    Runners up: Tune-yards, Seun Kuti, Beirut (mostly for the crowd...such a great crowd)

    There were to many good acts to pick from. Picking the worst 5 would be easy, but I won't list them. Most are on everyone's Top 5, with a few cool exceptions.
    99, 01, 02, 03, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11,12,13, 14
