The only time we had to move was to get up for a toilet break, and must admit the portaloos were spotless and almost pleasant to use!!! Maybe that's a sign of age.
Only caught four of the acts.
Walked in on Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny who were excellent crowd pleasers , and included a cracking version of "Devil In Disguise" . Well worth tracking down and here's a litle video of them below:
Next up were the Batacuda Sound Machine from Auckland New Zealand (web site here) who served up some festival friendly funk. Them live below:
Next up were the hit of the day , The Easy Star All Stars , who entertained with dub and reggae versions of most of Sergeant Peppers , Pink Floyd's Money , Radiohead's Paranoid Android and closing with Karma Police . An odd choice to finish with but awesome and perfect festival entertainment especially in the sun . You can download their albums here , and see them below doing "Money":
Headliners were the Lightning Seeds , but without England in the World Cup Final (which wasnt gonna happen) they had their work cut out . The opened with "Sense" my absolute favourite and managed to keep big chunks of the crowd dancings even through the ill advised cover of Phil Spector's "Be My Baby". Below is an acoustic rendition of Sense:
All in all another excellent Festival , looking forward to next years!!
