Best festival show was by The Bloodhound Gang. Not because of the music but cause of their interaction with the audience. They really entertained the crowd. Don't like those bands on festivals with an "enter the the stage-play some songs-leave the stage" attitude.

Best show concerning quality of music was by The John Butler Trio. While many bands are awful live (Counting Crows was a terrible disaster), the JBT guys are live even better than on studio records. Really worth every penny! How well known are they at yours?

'85 London, RUN DMC, Whodini and some shouty white dudes that hardly anyone had heard of called the Beastie Boys. I was 12 and had my mind blown.

'89 London, Chilli Peppers touring Mother's Milk in a pretty tight venue (now gone) crazy moshing and crowd surfing. I'd been skating and listening to Uplift Mofo Party Plan. A lot.

See The Prodigy in '91 and '99. First was a little P.A at a Raindance rave second was a massive festival headliner. Both times amazing, I was pretty hammered both times.

If I had to pick one I don't think I could.

Bob Log III .
Saw him in a venue not much bigger than my living room with 30 people-tops.
Never seen or heard anything like that before .
I've seen many big name and not so big name acts in the last 3-4 decades,but this one was how can I say it........unique .

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.

Shit I forgot to mention USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker) who I've seen 4 times now. They headlined a new years show I went to in Toronto a couple years ago.

The opener was a very small Indian (from India) sounding band. It really set the vibe for the night. Then there was a crazy 80's workout style "band" that just got everybody weird. We started by stretching (yes the whole crowd followed along), and by the end we were dry humping our neighbours. Then USS came on and the place pumped...

I second what TT said, I saw Marilyn Manson live back when I was in high school and the stage show was incredible. Very theatrical. Best ever was probably Nine Inch Nails (in fact they were opening for David Bowie), great performance and sounded like I expected. Close rival though, I went to see Pretty Lights last October and was blown away, the light show was amazing and really didn't expect it to be as non-stop as it was.
