Dream Festival Line-up

Recommended Posts

Right,with it being festival summer, and the moaning about shit line ups in many of the british festivals this year, I'm wondering what would your dream festival line up be?

(Cos its hypothetical, why not include deceased/split up bands)

Try and keep it to ten or less otherwise it might get a bit ridiculous

Personally (From headliner to smallest act)

Led Zeppelin

ABBA

The Smiths

James Brown

Jeff Buckley

Silverchair

Death From Above 1979

Idlewild

Aereogramme

The Xcerts

I suppose so....just make sure you do a better job of looking after him than you did at that party in '73!
