Make your own festival

After watching a couple of hours of Live Earth, I decided that I probably could put together a better looking list of bands in about 10 minutes, so here it is. The game is that you have to come up with a list of 30 bands (they must be active, making records and/or touring occasionally) you would most want to see live. It would have to be stretched out over two days, so come up with an opening and closing band for each day.

Here's mine:

Day 1
1. The Shins
2. Spoon
3. The Go! Team
4. Beck
5. Beastie Boys
6. The Killers
7. Franz Ferdinand
8. The Streets
9. Muse
10. David Bowie
11. Prince
12. Supergrass
13. Coldplay
14. R.E.M.
15. U2

Day 2
16. Flaming Lips
17. Wilco
18. Ryan Adams
19. Bob Dylan
20. Bruce Springsteen
21. Super Furry Animals
22. Oasis
23. Gnarls Barkley
24. My Morning Jacket
25. Radiohead
26. Interpol
27. Sufjan Stevens
28. TV On The Radio
29. White Stripes
30. Arcade Fire

Seriously. I think I would cry.

It's An Attitude: A Festival For The Ages In The Greatest City In The World
Venue: Central Park, New York, New York
Admission: Free - if you can fit in the park, you can see the show.
Date: July 29

Day 1
2.Arcade Fire
3.Third Eye Blind*
4.Green Day
5.Beastie Boys
7.The Muse
8.Red Hot Chili Peppers
9.Alanis Morrisette
10.Tori Amos
12.Smashing Pumpkins*
13.Depeche Mode
14.Foo Fighters
15.Pearl Jam

Day 2
1.The Police/Sting
6.Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
7.Elton John
8.Billy Joel
10.Bob Dylan
12.Pink Floyd*
13.Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham*
14.The Rolling Stones
15.Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Sean Lennon, and Dhani Harrison*

*1-3 = With original guitarist Kevin Cadogen
*1-11 = With Bill Barry
*1-12 = REAL Pumpkins lineup
*2-3 = One-time reunion of real GNR lineup, Slash and all
*2-4 = With Jason Newsted as the bassist(Cliff Burton would be better but he is dead), and playing mostly old-school stuff
*2-12 = Classic 70s Lineup
*2-13 = I won't call them Led Zeppelin, because it's not without John Bonham, but it's the next best thing.
*2-15 = Same thing, I won't call them the Beatles without John and George, but it's the next best thing. Could end the show with Hey Jude or All You Need Is Love or something like that.

The second half of Day 2 is just a fucking dream. Having the legends of legends marched out one after another...S&G, Dylan, Floyd, Faux Zep, Stones, Faux Beatles......the whole festival builds up to that.

Yeah, I really REALLY bent the 'must be active' rule.

Fuck, that would own so much.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
