    1. Arcade Fire
    1A. Big Gigantic
    3. Beck

    Those three sets were absolutely magical... I can't put into words what I just witnessed.

    Other notables were Broken Bells, The Knife, Warpaint, Pharrell, Muse, Little Dragon, The 1975, Fatboy Slim, The Magician. Bummed that I missed most of the Pixies but from what I caught they were great.

    Worst: Chance the Rapper. God what terrible terrible noise pollution that was... And I'm not just saying that bc of the Bieber thing.

    Wow, feel like I attended a different festival than most of the rest of you. Thought the new AF songs played great, loved Reflector and the weirdness of Afterlife/Hey Orpheus, but for most of the older tracks, this was the flattest I've seen AF perform them. Power Out in particular was really off.Loved Beck's set list, had a ton of fun, but he's clearly, like TV on the Radio a studio artist first.

    For me, this year, almost all the the best action came in the tents with the little guys. A fine Coachelpa, but not one where a lot of the big dogs impressed.

    1A. Frank Turner - No videos, no gadgets, but note for note this was the most entertaining set of weekend. Sevens me right for posting a few months ago he was one of those artists who didn't deserve a second appearance.
    1B. Future Islands - Tin Man into First four songs of Singles my favorite and best performed stretch of entire festival.
    3. Bryan Ferry - best of the old timers I caught, though saving Mats for week 2.
    4. Darkside
    5. Bo Ningen - Holy Shit what an early morning racket.

    Friday strongest day overall, but Sundays got the best pre-6 action for sure.

    Honorable Mentions - The Preatures, the Knife, Broken Bells, Neko Case, GOAT, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Jagwar Ma, the Afghan Whigs, QOTSA, Graveyard, Washed Out, pet Shop Boys, Mogwai, Drowners,arcade Fire, Beck, Courtney Barnett, Motörhead, Daughter, preservation Hall Jazz Band.
    The Replacements - Bryan Ferry - Outkast - The Knife - Dum Dum Girls - Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Broken Bells - Haim - Neko Case - Jagwar Ma - Goat - Waxahatchee

    Queens Of The Stone Age - Pet Shop Boys - Chvrches - Mogwai - Warpaint - Washed Out - Future Islands - Ty Seagall - Darkside - Foxygen

    Beck - Neutral Milk Hotel - Superchunk - Arcade Fire - Bombino - Daughter - Surfer Blood

    It's very difficult to pick just 5 but I'll try. Last night it was magical with Little Dragon > Beck > Arcade Fire but I still feel bad for missing Big Gigantic, Motörhead and Disclosure. Here my top 5 (in no particular order:

    - Arcade Fire
    - Pixies
    - Beck
    - Future Islands
    - Queens of the Stone Age

    Honorable mentions:

    Glitch Mob
    Replacements
    Little Dragon
    Caravan Palace
    Temples
    Fatboy Slim
    DARKSIDE
    Zoe

    1) Fatboy Slim - Muscle memory that was 15 years old kicked in. Haven't danced for an hour straight like that in years.
    2) Motorhead - laid waste to everything in front of them. Really happy I chose to see them.
    3) Pet Shop Boys - Lights & theatricality probably rivaled most Sahara dance acts and I doubt many people knew
    4) Rudimental - Spectacular live show with so many moving parts that all flowed together.
    5) Jagwar Ma - Much better show than seeing them a few months back. More polished with huge energy.

    HM - Outkast, Warpaint, The Replacements, The Cult, Banks, Carbon Airways, John Newman, Blood Orange

    Drove out for a few hours Saturday and only saw one full set, but it was the best one, Queens of the Stone Age. While standing shoulder to shoulder wih Steven Tyler, who appeared to be on something pleasant, weird times. He was enjoying the company of his by all appearances early 20 something girlfriend as well, as evidenced by the sloppy making out they were taking part in.

    1. The Pixies - really loved their setlist and Frank Black's voice sounded perfect.
    2. Bryan Ferry - totally amazing. really great song selection, though it seemed like he only played half or less of More than This.
    3. Frank Turner - he's one of my favorite artists so it was good to see him again.
    4. Jagwar Ma - these guys were great. Way better than when I saw them last year.
    5. Arcade Fire - what more can be said. Loved all the Reflektor tracks, which I like better than Suburbs. Like that they played my favorite track from that record, Flashbulb Eyes, which they didn't play at the NSSN show in December in Oakland.

    Reflektor started/finished as F for You and Latch were playing. Flashbulb Eyes was playing when Disclosure ended.

    Edit: Thanks for the lists everyone. Hopefully next weekend is as fun as this one looked (maybe Outkast will regroup and come out stronger?)

    We left the massive Disclosure crowd at about 10:05 to get a spot for Arcade Fire. Was bummed to miss Mary J and Sam Smith but at least I got White Noise.
