      Gonna have to bow out lads, apologies, between Xmas, covid and only performance I'm aware that took place at Coachella being Tupac's hologram, I'm just not finding the time. But will try and get in for voting in some of the rounds. Cheers for running regardless shrap

        Is it not going to be hard to judge multiple 1 hour plus performances?

            I'm just a bit unsure as to what we are judging/posting, songs or sets? If it is set then people will just vote for the bands they already know as sets are too much of a time commitment. I'm also not aware of any Coachella sets, so I don't really have a starting point to come up with a song. Sorry, not trying to be a grinch!

              No worries. Looking for one great coachella track/performance. Just the one song.

                There is a way to link a hour+ YouTube video by selecting the start time which embeds in the link, so if you’ve a part of a set you want just start it there.

                  Gonna be hard to do a Spotify playlist for this
                  People say I should be more humble I hope they understand, they don't listen when you mumble

                              Glad I'm not the only one that found it a challenge. That's the point though.
                              I hold silver in tit for tat, and I love you for that

                                going to start putting the songs up. two missing which i'll add on later once i get them so don't start your voting just yet.

                                same system for this one. rank them from favourite to least favourite

                                  This is probably the easiest selection I'll ever make. Nothing else crossed my mind. Could have been pretty much any track but we all know and love this one... imperious, and indeed, history making.

                                      So many acts to choose from, and then once I picked this one so many years to go back to. Figured I’d stick to a year where the sound quality was best, so you can really feel the emotion and energy from the crowd. Impossible not to move along with this one, saw them live around 2006 as an unknown to me outfit then and was completely converted.

                                          This was from when they were at their peak the video isn't great but the sound is good enough to get a sense of how amazing it must have been to be there.

                                            Absolute stomping energy. White Stripes with my favourite of theirs.

                                              Probably an obvious one but still answers your question.

                                              Any song from this stint. I'll pick from 18 mins in.

                                                  dissapointed at lack of Skrillex though

                                                    Hans Zimmer - THE DARK KNIGHT

                                                    Whoever thought to get Hans Zimmer to play Coachella is a genius. An entire stage packed with world-class musicians is a feast for the eyes and ears.

                                                      My votes
                                                      I- imagine some knob twiddler having to follow that - had to listen to a few other tracks off this Too

                                                      A- bit obvious but fair enough

                                                      B- yes

                                                      H- looks like it was recorded on an old Nokia BUT it comes across how pumped crowd are getting

                                                      E- have never given these guys a chance- have an association of them with the old ray darcy show on today fm and a n old job- this is good though

                                                      F- energy is good

                                                      G- dunno- not coming across that well - prepared to love this but lacking

                                                      C- they get the crowd going but I’ve no idea what they are doing up there

                                                      D- not a great quality recording and doesn’t do a lot for me

                                                        A Beyonce good song, good performance, good quality video

                                                        B Prince good song, good performance, not so good quality video

                                                        I Hans - Love this

                                                        F white stripes, pretty good

                                                        G Depeche mode - pretty good

                                                        D Jack White - meh

                                                        C - Justice - not one of their better tracks


                                                        E sigur ross - bands like this need to be listened to in good quality. Also I've been to several sigur ross gigs and I mainly remember being bored and cold


                                                        H - I love daft punk, but this recording was too bad to appreciate anything, like listening to music some kids are playing out of a phone on a bus. Also you should be arrested for calling Daft punk EDM

                                                            Really enjoyed everything here. really tough one to figure out the bottom half order

                                                            B- still gives me chills. incredible track
                                                            A- This is just incredible also
                                                            E-seen them in concert before and it was fantastic (drugs may or may not have been ingested at the time)-great track
                                                            G- never been a big fan of theirs but this is such a great riff and track
                                                            I- this is great
                                                            H-Fantastic
                                                            F- really like the white stripes, but this song just sounds like a bit of a mess
                                                            C-would love to have been there
                                                            D- just doesn't do it for me

                                                              Not a s strong a round as I had anticipated. Perhaps because live music rounds tend to rely heavily on the visual and 'you had to have been there' element. Nevertheless, enjoyable enough but I think Beyonce is the only one I'd like to see more of.

                                                              A – The queen.

                                                              F – White Stripes is Jack White’s better half for sure. Good rocker this.
                                                              B – Radiohead are extremely over-rated IMO. OK I suppose but I’m pretty sure any other Prince original would have been scored higher from me.
                                                              G – Not a huge Depeche Mode fan but this song ain’t bad and probably better for being live. However a point docked for making me look at Dave Gahan’s tits.
                                                              I – Marked down for not giving us a specific track so I dipped in and out. Would clearly have been an awesome live experience.
                                                              D – I don’t doubt Jack White’s commitment to music but I feel the degree of affectation doesn't often resonate with me. Kinda get that here. OK but no big shakes. Would have been better if Meg White had been on drums.
                                                              H – Daft Punk were an excellent exercise in commercial ‘dance music by numbers’ so good luck to ‘em but not for me and I’d walk on by if I saw this at a festival and go and watch a mute puppet show by two bearded ladies instead.
                                                              C – never really got into Justice. Just a watery Daft Punk to me. Sorry.

                                                                Overall its been a fairly shite festival IMO
                                                                The Sigur Ros and the Hans Zimmer were the only sets I could sit through, The Prince, Jack White and White Stripes you had to be there for, the Beyonce is just another superbowl mediocre pop half time show with no sense of being a live event and the techno stuff is doing nothing for me

Perhaps because live music rounds tend to rely heavily on the visual and 'you had to have been there' element. Nevertheless, enjoyable enough but I think Beyonce is the only one I'd like to see more of.

                                                                    F - Decent

                                                                    A - It has everything, but just too polished, i didnt like the switching back and forth from red to yellow as two different weekend recordings.
                                                                    C - struggled to listen to it

It is an adaptation of William S. Burroughs' 1959 novel of the same name, and an international co-production of Canada, Britain, and Japan.

                                                                                  The film was released on 27 December 1991 in the United States, and 24 April 1992 in the United Kingdom by 20th Century Fox. It received positive reviews from critics, but was a box office flop, garnering only $2.6 million out of a $17–18 million budget due to a limited release. It won numerous honours, including the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Director and seven Genie Awards, notably Best Motion Picture. Naked Lunchhas since become a cult film, acclaimed for its surrealistic visual and thematic elements.
