My 2 cents:
The music, lights and sound were all fantastic. Noticeably so. Everything ran on time as well, although if you wanted to move between the two main stages you needed to pick one you really wanted a good spot for, but that's to be expected with big crowds like that.
The queue on Thurs was just one of those things. I've been in worse though, including the last Glastonbury. The other days I just walked straight in, so I wonder if the site wasn't quite ready on that first day. Busses home were also easy enough, leaving pretty late. The real frustration was getting a train to the festival - absolutely rammed and boiling hot.
The bars seemed to be hit and miss - the bigger the bar the smaller the queues seemed to be. Switching to spirits was a great decision - all free-poured pretty much to wherever you wanted it. Really good value compared to beer.
VIP is here to stay, sorry folks. Not a chance in hell they could book a line up that good without that extra revenue. Ideally the size of the VIP areas would be reduced or moved slightly, but that looks unlikely.
Overall, pretty decent. I'd need another really good lineup to rush back next year I think, but very glad I went.
Highlights - Big Moon, Arctics, massive vodkas, Justice, Washed Out, Mick Jenkins, vegetarian curry, NIN, the French taking over Sol celebrating their World Cup victory
