I'm an old school kinda guy, so I'd rate these festivals as follows:

1. Sasquatch! - Beck, Flaming Lips and Queens of the Stone Age trump all for me.

2. Oxegen & T in the Park (tie) - The Who and the Peppers together? Now that's what I call intergenerational rock. I hope (probably pointlessly) that The Who strips back down to a four piece. Wouldn't that be nice? I'd also like to see The Strokes; I'm lovin' their new album.

3. Rites of Spring. I admit to being impressed by My Morning Jacket, but they seem overexposed now and I get really bored with noodling. Ben Folds annoys the fuck out of me.

4. Orange Evolution - I don't know much about Hard-Fi, to be honest.
