Sad but not unexpected. Presumably, then, they put themselves as headliners on the last night because they couldn't afford another headline act...

To be honest, my friends and I didn't much enjoy the festival this year. We were robbed on several occasions from our tents (the worst being 100 nicked from my mate's wallet as he slept), and generally we were surrounded by arrogant 16-18 year olds who I'd more expect to see at Reading. I guess the cheap ticket deals led to a scummy crowd.
The line-up was pretty toilet, too. Disappointing lack of variety and honestly, Dreaming Spires are the most boring band ever to close a festival main stage.

I won't be going back but I do hope they keep the festival going. I didn't really see the need for expanding, they're obviously clever enough to see the market is overcrowded so I'm not sure how on earth they thought it'd be a good idea, particularly with such a weak line-up.

Will be interesting to see what happens considering the drastic changes last years event saw.

Interesting interview with the guy that's taken over the running of the festival, not sure a back to basics approach will be right for the festival. It was on a downward slide way before last year as it wasn't moving with the times, last year was a GREAT improvement and now they are getting rid of it all?

Agreed, nothing too inspiring so far...
