It may be a bit early to be calling the “best” festival acts of 2010, but that hasn’t stopped a UK radio station from doing exactly that. Planet Rock let listeners vote throughout the month of August on their favorite acts from UK festivals.

AC/DC is number one both on this list and in our hearts. Planet Rock is a classic rock station which might explain how Foreigner made the Top 10.

1. AC/DC (Download)
2. Muse (Glastonbury, V Festival)
3. Iron Maiden (Sonisphere)
4. Slash (Download, Glastonbury, Wireless)
5. Joe Bonamassa (High Voltage)

7. ELP (High Voltage)
8. Aerosmith (Download)
