• 2016's greatest concerts and festivals

    Dear readers,

    I have attended numerous concerts as well as one festival in 2016. I simply wanted to create a list and rate these experiences from best to worst. Let me point out that twenty-two out of twenty-three shows or festivals were at least very good and often much more than that. That's why it was particularly difficult for me to chose an appropriate ranking. Only one show was pretty average. This means that 2016 was in fact my greatest year ever in terms of concert and festival experiences. I hope 2017 can catch up with this outstanding year. I will keep you updated with future concert and festival experiences. Without any further ado, here's my list.
