Plenty of lists of bands we want to see, but which 10 songs are you most looking forward to hearing live in all their glory?
After doing lots of homework, discovering some great new bands and taking into account the views of my kids, this is my top 10:
NMH - Ghost (told kids I would take them into the mosh pit for this one)
Teleman - Mainline (plenty of crackers on the album, but this singalong beauty has become a total summer anthem in our house)
Samantha Crain - Kidface (only discoverd recently, after reading another threat and boy am I glad I did, what a voice, what a song)
Daughter - Still (discovered, ironically by my daughter, on day of first announcement - should be gorgeous live)
First Aid Kit - King of the World (not even sure they'll play it now they've got 3 albums to choose from, but fingers crossed)
Augustines - Cruel City (another recent, but very welcome discovery)
Boy and Bear - Southern Sun (hopefully on a sunny late afternoon in the walled garden with the one beer my kids let me have!)
Toy - Join the dots (love all of the first album, but seen them play it live a few times - this is the best of the latest album)
Waterboys - Whole of the moon (festival moment in waiting?)
Mercury Rev - Delta Sun bottleneck stomp (just the last bit really, but always makes me smile which is a good thing)
I have finally got over the 'loss' of Belle and Sebastian (what happened there?) and am getting very excited about seeing the full day by day line up, so I can work out if I can actually get to hear all of the above and plenty more that didn't make the cut.
