Okay, first off, this thread drove me to sign up for a username just so I can comment on it.
I went to Electric Picnic 2012 just to see Pulp. I saw all the dates popping up all over Europe for the summer. Plane tickets were uber expensive but I realized that I had to see the band that I've been obsessing about since 1995 (which I have never seen live before). They were incredible and Electric Picnic was just small enough that I got a front rail spot without standing there all day. It was windy, then sunny, then rained, then repeated and alternated rain, wind and sun all day until I saw them. Best time of my life.
