I didnt "see" them but i laid out by a lemonade stand for the whole set, and the "fugi" i ate made the show unbelievable, i've never been so damn happy in my life other than that moment,hopefully they will come back next year i think they fit in well. I really wish though they play on the main stage and did a performance like they did on there dvd for untiled 8, that would have been something else.

Yeah, the only "disappointment" of their set is that I was praying and praying for them to come out for a Untitled #8 encore; that would have caused a state of complete mindblowing ecstasy (or a state of mindblowing ecstasy x 2 heh). Not that they didn't achieve that with the rest of their set and amazing performances like Hafsol, it's just that Untitled #8 would have put an insanely ridiculous cap to the whole thing.
But overall, I couldn't have been happier with the set. I only wish I'd gotten there earlier and gotten a better spot. But my god was that incredible.
It was great. I wish people had actually sat down like a real Sigur Ros show so everyone could have relaxed and seen the stage. That isn't standing music, folks! Its relaxing and mellow. And some guy completely passed out next to us. He stood up and fell back down like an accordion, hit his head and his legs bent at the knees the WRONG way. He started puking and had to have water poured all over him. Sort of screwed up my vibe for such an amazing show.
I had the time of my life at Sigur Ros this weekend. I skipped out of Pearl Jam around 11pm to get a fairly decent spot, and managed to meet some really cool people next to me. It was just so peaceful and happy. My only two complaints are that a) my legs were freakin' killing me after a really long day in Centeroo, and b) I had to lose my spot towards the end so I could duck out and use one of the porta-potties. That Camelback full of beer went straight through me ;D.

unfortunately i was pretty tired during this show, so i was mainly laying outside the tent, resting for ghostland observatory, just listening to the music.. fortunately i saw them about two years ago in cincinnati, and that was one of the best shows of my life.

Sigur Ros was no doubt a religious experience for me. Top 5 show of all time. I just closed my eyes, felt pure bliss, and floated. I came back to earth when it was all over with, but I was pretty shell-shocked after that experience.
