  1. Ha, it's not that bad. A few tricky moments but overall it's fine. I think I've only lost all my lives two or three times and I'm halfway through Crash 2. It's just a bit dull!
  2. After the initial nostalgia hit, I have no urge to continue playing Crash. It's nowhere near as fun as I remember
  3. Smashed it. A million miles better than 2015 and she was the highlight of my festival then. I remember hearing her on 6Music about 10 years ago when she went by Excentral Tempest. Can't say I paid too much attention until Everybody Down came out but she always stayed lodged in my mind for some reason. Our saviour.
  4. What did we think team? I thought she blew 2011 out of the water. Smaller but more attentive crowd this year it seemed. A little disappointed she didn't draw a bit more from OIWAE and Short Movie but that's nit picking. Loved it.
  5. Didn't notice sound issues. I was a few rows back in line with the left screen. Same place for Kate Tempest was fine too but then wasn't for Paak. Avalanches were tonnes of fun. Shame it wasn't recorded.
  6. AP was one of my most anticipated but from where I was stood, after Come Down, the sound was absolutely terrible. Rather than sticking it out where I was, I decided to try a different spot and just couldn't find anywhere to settle. I gave up after a few songs. Even during Come Down when the sound was great, I straight away could sense something was off and I just wasn't in the mood. Not necessarily a reflection of the performance and partially my own fault. I went and sat in the Left Field and chilled out for Billy Bragg instead and had a fine time so it's all good
  7. Mine is also in km. 109.4km which equates to about 68 miles. Lowest was 13.8km on the Wednesday and the highest was 31.1km on Sunday.
  8. Best Act: Keep flipping between Flaming Lips and Kate Tempest. I think it will ultimately go down as Kate Tempest. Best Song: Kate Tempest's new one was ace but not certain of the title. Think it was People's Faces? Best Discovery: Joseph Most Frequented Stage: Pyramid (First Aid Kit, The xx, Bootleg Beatles, National, Foos, Laura Marling, Barry Gibb)
  9. Kate Tempest Flaming Lips Haim Laura Marling The xx Honourable mentions for First Aid Kit, Cut Capers, Joseph, Will Varley and Dr Dog.
  10. Just remembered Margo Price doing Mercedes Benz too. That sounded flawless.
  11. Thursday: Cut Capers - 8/10 Friday: Pretenders - 8/10 Bo Ningen - 7/10 Margo Price - 7/10 (Half set. What I saw sounded great though, would probably be higher if I stuck around) First Aid Kit - 9/10 Kate Tempest - 10/10 The xx - 9/10 Anderson .Paak - n/a. Awful sound. Couldn't get settled into a spot. Left after 4 or 5 songs. Billy Bragg - 7/10 Flaming Lips - 9/10 Saturday: Bootleg Beatles - 7/10 Joseph - 8/10 Moonlandingz - 7/10 Badbadnotgood - 6/10 (Background music to some munch) Will Varley - 8/10 Avalanches - 7/10 National - 6/10 (Half set. Pretty dull) Foos - 8/10 (Would probably be higher if not for the extended versions of virtually every song. No-one needs an 8 minute version of Monkey Wrench) Sunday: Slaves - 6/10 She Drew The Gun - 6/10 (Watched from the hill so probably not a reliable score) Dr Dog - 7/10 Laura Marling - 9/10 (Glorious. New stuff sounded great. Would have been a 10 if there was more stuff from Once I was an Eagle and Short Movie) Barry Gibb - 7/10 Haim - 8/10 Skinny Lister - 7/10 Justice - 7/10
  12. Agreed on First Aid Kit and Flaming Lips. Cut Capers did a great version of No Diggity on Thursday night. Barry Gibb's Boyzone cover too.
  13. Designated 'quiet' camping areas would be nice. We were in Rivermead this year which is normally nice and peaceful but we were next to a group who insisted on playing shite out of some tinny speakers until the early hours and thought that pissing next to their tents was a good idea. Pleasant folk. Apart from that though, I wouldn't change a thing.
  14. A top tier weekend but I've done better. Highlights: I don't think I saw a poor set all weekend. Main highlight was Kate Tempest. Mindblowing and on another level to her 2015 set. Also, Laura Marling, Flaming Lips, Cut Capers in the Avalon Cafe, First Aid Kit, Joseph, Avalanches, Will Varley, Haim, Barry Gibb. All excellent. Took more time in the T&C fields this year which was lovely. And Wednesday was gorgeous. Spent the whole day finding shade all across the site and snoozing. Lowlights: Knobhead neighbours. Anderson .Paak. Not taking advantage of the glorious food because of a lack of appetite.
  15. Oh and I felt incredibly sorry for Emile Sande as I walked past. Ed must have taken pretty much all of her crowd. Particularly sad when the streamers and confetti fired over a crowd of people about 20 deep from the stage.
