had a completely fantastic time (every year bar one since 2010), both company I was with and lineup.
beforehand I didn't think it was musically as strong as Green Man was (for me), but ended up on a par. really adventurous curating even if I didn't like everything booked.
three sets that so blew me away it was almost overwhelming: Low (have always loved them get they are marmite but this was the best set I have ever seen and completely made sense of the new stuff); Murder Capital (just stunning, knocked Fontaines and Shame out the park); and the sublimely beautiful Bill RJ turning up and being, well, beautiful.
some other new stuff found and loved: Sweaty Palms (lead singer: bottle of buckie half down by midday, get in!); Girl in Red; Porridge Radio (much better than @ Green Man); Harrison Whitford; Tyler Childers (surprised myself liking that, but they were soooo good including Uncle Buck on drums); and Lewsberg seemed pretty good.
Thought it was really obvious from the outset that Hard Skin was a piss take. Regret not buying a 'shopping is for c**ts' tote bag.
Missed the list of secret stuff being posted up on the press room door. Didn't like the trek to the additional parking over the access road. Liked the better showers. Add me to the 'ban chairs / small castles / other barrier shit' on the Garden and in darkened tents.
