Wednesday Question: Best Music Festivals?
Summer is officially over (boo!), but it's been a stellar year for festival line-ups.

But with so many festival options, from day-events to sprawling weekends with dozens of tents and the biggest acts in the world, it's hard to pick out which ones are really the best.

This week's Wednesday Question is:

What are the best festivals in the world?

There's so many factors to consider that it could be a real tough one. There's the quality of the acts, but also the quality of services and what the festival ground is like. You might also consider the legacy - and then there's the fellow festival clientele to consider. An average lineup is sometimes balanced by an atmosphere which puts a smile on everyone's face.

It'll also be interesting to hear about quirky small festivals that you've discovered - they'll be fascinating to hear about, even if they don't make it to the final list.

As a rule, we'd like any festival you nominate to have been active in the past three years - there might have been some awesome festivals in the past, but we want to know which active festivals are the greatest on this occasion.

As usual, post one nomination per comment and upvote others you agree with. We'll be rounding up your results for a live-music spectacular on Friday. With a little thought, your post will make it to the final top 10. Good luck!
