I was going through some concert listings to prepare to today's show, when I saw that Rich Aucoin is playing at the Hillside Festival in Guelph. It seems to me like the perfect match between festival and act - Rich Aucoin is famous for his immersive and ebuillent concerts, and Hillside crowds are well known for their willingness to get completely into the music. I can only imagine how crazy the show is going to be.

Which got me thinking - what are some of the best matched acts to festivals you've ever seen, or would like to see? What's the perfect spot for the perfect band at the perfect time? 

Plus, if you're a listener based in the U.K. or Europe, get excited because it seems like half the bands on the show today are heading overseas for summer touring. Cool!
