Tortoise killed it that day. So did Tool. But I think you may have missed out by not seeing the John Paul Jones, ?uestlove and Ben Harper Superjam that night!

^^^ I heard some of the Superjam, sounded great but unfortunately too packed. That was a great day at 'roo! So many of those to chose from... Neil Young, The Dead, Ween, The Boss, Phish, Tool, MMJ, and of course Radiohead.

But I will pick one of the festivals I was least excited for "Oxygen Fest 2004"just outside of Dublin, initially I heard it had bands like Black Eyed Peas, Pink and Ash - but knew people going so decided to go anyways. Well Saturday turned into one fine day...

Started with, Buck 65
The Killers (in 2004 this was neat - they were just some band in "the New Band Tent")
Hope of the States (had only put out their first album which I really liked)
Franz Ferdinand
The Rapture
PJ Harvey
Belle and Sebastian
The Strokes
The Cure
and The Chemical Brothers all night.

It was the first time they had held this festival and it was a complete mess in a good way, no control over bands stepping over the set time, broken curfews, and it made amsterdam look like a joke! The next day I saw Wu-Tang Clan, Shins, Muse, Jimmy Cliff and Wilco. Really turned out to be pretty fun.

Being that I am a huge fan of 90's music I would have to say that one of the best festival line-up's I've attended was at Summersault in 1999 and it went like this...

Deftones / Sum 41 / Catherine Wheel / Treble Charger / Catherine Wheel / Eve 6 / A Perfect Circle / Foo Fighters / Our Lady Peace and the final tour of The Smashing Pumpkins!

Some of those bands have really shit the bed as of late, but back then it was Alt Rock Heaven...and Catherine Wheel blew most of those bands out of the water!

On the FLAMING FUCKING LIPSide...I also attended (can't remember the year) a crap festival in Camrose Alberta that featured:

Some Shit Canadian Metal Band / Rockhead / Sven Gali / Ugly Kid Joe / April Wine / Tom Cochrane / Def Lepard

AHHH...the good old days.

I was at Summersault '99 in Vancouver.
