Your most memorable moments of LGW

"Selda and all the crying people in the audience, and the drone fest at 5 in the morning. Felt like a weird SF movie."

"Finally a festival that understands that there should be no distinction between genres; good music is good music, no matter if the artist comes from Benin, Iceland, Brazil or the US."

"Entering the Tivoli building for the first time, climbing up the stairs, finding Pandora for the first time. My boyfriend and I were drunk and we felt like two hobbits taking the ring to Mt Doom. It was so funny."

"The kindness of the inhabitants of the beautiful city of Utrecht."

"The choice of acts is astonishing. On top of a lot of current affairs, yet completely apart from the commercial music business."

"Hugging Matt Sweeney during his cigarette break after the show."

"Mac DeMarco buying me and my boyfriend a beer and a whisky and referring to us as "playaaaas"

"People getting deeply emotional by music at Kamasi Washington and Annette Peacock shows. And first festival ever where every single visitor is there for music, not just for social reasons." 

"Getting lost on the way to De Helling, and having a local to walk me to the venue even though he didn’t know about the festival and it was late and a bit out of his way..."

"The singer of Savages walking on the hands of the public."

"Coming back from a year of waiting. Breathing the atmosphere, beautiful."

"Discarding my timetable on Saturday, and just seeing where I would end up."

"Entering Tivoli and soaking in the magnitude of it all, the beauty of the structure and the art and sounds."

"Finding an article on the back page of the Treasure Guide about ‘memorable moments’ that quoted my daughter’s 2014 ‘memorable moment’. She still has the Le Guess Who? question mark that they smuggled out of Moira under their coats :)"

"Lonnie Holley talking about the European castles and how moved he was when he first saw a real castle. Until then he’d only known them from fairy tales."

"When I saw the joy that a couple of debutants had at their first Le Guess Who?."

"The start of Junun. The band came out and the feelings of happiness and melancholy came together as it was the perfect closure of Le Guess Who? 2016."
