dissapointingly andy c was advertised to play but didn't.
beastie boys rocked. as did madness ( who were surprise guests) also saw the orb. bobby and nihal. billy bragg. zion train who were also amazing. horace andy. chemical rohters. kate nash ( who i didn't see but aparently got loads of lemons thrown at her).
the vibe was amazing. very surreal seeing bands with the whole crowd being in fancy dress...
one of the best bits was the beastie's saying put your hands up in the air... that means all of you. including you rubix cube (to the man dressed as a rbuix cube) and you incredible hulk would have love to have known whta people listening to it on the radio would have thought!
fancy dress i went as a pirate on the friday and as a wild west saloon girl on the saturday.
i saw some of the best and most inspirinmg costumes when i was ther , taking the whole term fancy dress to another level.
there was a group of mates dressed as bisuits . jammy dodgers bourbons pink wafers etc.
9 blokes dressed as red arrows complete with panes and ground crew who were walking in front with ping pong bats directing their every move.
the crystal maze team. an army of around 35 smurfs... the list is quite exhaustive. oh and the aforementioned rubix cube.
one of the best festivals i have been to. and i have been to a few. well organised. good vibe. everyone happy and up for it!
