Glastonbury 2008

Just because we weren't there doesn't mean we can't talk about it. In my heart Coachella is king but this is THE essential festival to attend. As fans of music festivals around this country we don't think we are too far away from making the trek across the pond and experiencing this one for ourselves. For now we thought we would highlight what we though was cool from this weekends fest.

Jay-Z handled the previous Oasis criticism of him being a headliner by opening with "Wonderwall" then breaking into a "99 Problems"-AC/DC medley and delivering a career defining performance. You can watch the whole performance here. [LINK]
