ok so this year was my second EOTR (was there in 2015 as well), and I thought that generally the chatter was less this year. I had to move a few times during acts in 2015, but apart from a couple of 40 something fella's during Nadine Shah's set, it was fine for me. We had a really great year - there did seem to be more teenagers there but they all seemed sound to me.We had a brilliant festival overall - the rain on Sunday really did it's best to dampen spirits but the first two days were really enjoyable.
Father John Misty
Band of Horses
Aaron Lee Tasjan
... and lots more. Was gutted that it rained for Amadou and Miriam and for Vaudou Game - their sets were made for a sunny day.
The food selection was great - I didn't even get trying all the stalls I wanted. Special mention for the dumplings!
The silent disco was great fun, and the new outlands area and cinema location worked really well. Did see some hard drug use late Friday night in the woods by the disco ship.
But other than that, nothing really negative to report. We've paid our deposit for tickets again for next year and will most definitely be staying with Honeybell's again. Loved the bell tent we had, and they provided us with bedding and towels. Roll on 2018!
