Nominate your Most Memorable Moment of 2009


United Kingdom United Kingdom | 09 September 2009

In previous years we’ve left it up to our journalists to choose the unforgettable events that have stood out all summer, but this year it’s up to you.

Here are a few we’ve come up with to see the sort of thing we’re after:

Thom Yorke giving ‘True Love Waits’ a very rare and intimate outing during his solo set at Latitude Festival.

The sea of Chinese lanterns floating above an exploding Tower Of Babel at Secret Garden Party.

Amy Winehouse’s surprise appearance at V Festival, joining The Specials onstage for ‘You’re Wondering Now’ and ‘Ghost Town’

Had to be Damon Albarn collapsing in a sea of man-tears during 'To The End' at Glastonbury during Blur's emotional return to the big stage. There wasn't a dry eye in the field.

Watching Neil Young as the sun went down at Isle of Wight was my highlight, culminating in wrecking his guitar during his cover of A Day In The Life. Amazing show by a true living legend.

My most memorable moment was at Glastonbury this year - a 15 minute sprint across the site from the Pyramid to the Park because Jon texted that he was taking pictures of Muse....who turned out to be Gaz Coombes. Gutted. Then we had to go all the way back and resume our positions for Fleet Foxes - it was worth a shot!

Def Leppard at Download 2009. Joe Elliot called the festival "Donnington Monster of Rock" and said it would always be known as that. Memorable because he talked about their gig there 23 years ago, their 1st after rick lost his arm and I WAS THERE TOO! They are still as passionate and still as good.

Another most memorable for me was at Sonisphiere 2009 just before Limp Bizkit when a young guy said he though my Reading Rock '82 t-shirt was really cool and that he had never seen one that old before !! LOL.

V Fest Hylands Park. Amy Winehouse crawling around the stage at Pete Doherty's ace headline set. Swinging off his neck & trying to kiss him. The added joy of Nikki Graham of Big Bro fame next to us asking if it was actually Pete Doherty & trying to attract his attention.

Chunky Butt Funky at the finale of Limetree festival, bringing a rainbow of muscians together on stage to share the love, just as a rainbow appeared in the sky- oh precious moments!

Utah Saints closing the Wickerman Festival... as the Wicker Man burned on the hill they played a special remix of The Maypole Song from the movie soundtrack. Spooky!
