Just got back from Lollapalooza and Daft Punk played the most amazing live set I have ever witnessed. Absolutely ridiculous. If they are coming anywhere near you you must go see them (neighbors to the north I am looking at you).
I realize many of you don't have to be told, but if you are on the fence you just gotta go. It was literally worth the price of the entire Lollapalooza three day pass. The visuals and music were nothing I have ever seen. They are definitely more than musical artists.

It's going to be very difficult to top this set. Pitchfork's Scott Plagenhoef agrees:
You don't have to be "Jimmy the Greek" to prognosticate that there won't be better music all weekend, nor will be there be a more visually alluring performance or one that seems like more of an event. Daft Punk will win the weekend on all accounts.
