Best Live Performance of 2016

Best Live Performance of 2016


To include Music, Comedy, whatever.

I’ll start us off with my favourite this year:

The Unthanks at Beautiful Days in August.



Michael Rother at Green Man

Father John Misty at the Roundhouse


Calexico - Brighton Dome

Field Music - Engine Rooms

Sweet Billy Pilgrim - Guildford


Faithless - Brixton.

Danced my nuts off, sweated buckets, would do it all again in a heartbeat


I graced the stage of the Royal Albert Hall this year.

Well, walked across it.


Coldplay. Glasto. Barry Gibb.

No contest in any year ever imho


I wish I’d seen that. Big Neu! fan (as per my user name). I caught him doing a thing in London a couple of years back, with Steve Shelley out of Sonic Youth.

Best gig I’ve been to this year was Death Grips down in Bristol, a couple of months ago. It felt like a riot.


Yeah - he was amazing. Had the whole tent going bananas at 4 in the afternoon.

Death Grips - jealous. Bet that was carnage.
