Weather was fantastic - got well and truly sunburnt!

First time attending this particular festival - well organised and it was nice to see some hot showers and clean toilets as well. Having been to other mudfests, this one made a refreshing change.

Highlights - Aziz, Ade Edmondson's cover of 'The Model', Henry Priestman, KadeSHA, Emma Black.

Had a brilliant time at the festival, sailing in on the Thursday and getting blown away on the Tuesday morning! Great people, great weather and superb bands and artistes! Really enjoyed it! The Loosehounds, Ade Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds and Swans In Flight topped my festival! Well done to all involved! Looking forward to next years!
