The Editors, really like their cd so was cool to see them live, performance was top notch, probably enjoyed them the most. Strange how such a good band was put on so early (8pm).



Lily Allen was there, such a chav, started doing England chants and stuff whilst in Spain. Surprised by the quality of her voice though, ok for a bit of entertainment.


The Flaming Lips. Cool entrance in bubble which went into the crowd (see pic) and a lot of other cool visual stuff. But the actual music was really quite bad, pile of wank. He also got all political and wouldn't stop talking for like ten minutes which was annoying and cringeworthy.



Bloc Party. Really enjoyed this, love their stuff so again was cool to see them live, good performance, their drummer makes the band imo.




Scissor Sisters. Good stuff, but was pretty mashed by this point.


2manyDjs. Unremarkable.


Still got tonight to go to…back to bed now I think.

when i get my mates pictures together i will post them up, no one wants to see one of me eating. i didn't take many good ones of the actual festival and my writing skills will be pointless without visuals.

Went Glade, far too many dreadlocked psy-trance fans dressed as elves/Amazonian priestesses etc. Grr..

Took too many illicit stimulants, can't remember lots of it. Loads of good techno and Dubstep though.

Field Day looks wicked!
