    Default Best non-main stage act of 2007?

    Because almost everyone saw Arcade Fire, Bjork, Rage, and other result-skewers, let's think about something else.

    Would have voted for Klaxons or Hot Chip, but they don't seem to be options.

    Happy Mondays would be my vote for worst band i saw.

    Though the first half of their set was filled with technical problems, out of the choices here I would have to go with of Montreal for delivering a solid show anyway, and making me dance.

    I thought Benny Bennassi was pretty good how he started with the 24 backround. Not the best but it was good.

    I based my vote on audience response. The crowd was going berserk during Gogol Bordello.

    MSTRKRFT was incredible, they should be on the list...and DJ SHADOW was mind altering. He came in late becaose of fucking Sonic Youth taking WAY too long, then he experinced some technical problems before he came on, but his set was arguably the best on of the three days.

    Gogol Bordello! They were amazing. I was expecting to have fun, but I had no idea what I was in for!
    Rodrigo y Gabriella are very, very, very close second.
