Overall I had fun and enjoyed so much incredible music. I wouldn’t go back though.
The bands and lineup was amazing, it was almost hard to comprehend moving from one huge act to the next almost straight after. Tame Impala we’re brilliant, loved Young Fathers, Justice and Dua Lipa too.
(I thought Jack White was so cringey nowadays and boring, though clearly a minute minority in here(!))
The crowd were brilliant, loved the site and the sound. I didn’t have any issues with the queues and although the one water location was annoying, I never waited more than couple of mins.
Didnt care about VIP area issue.
But the initial queuing was shocking. I waited for an hour in baking heat with no confirmation I was even in the right place. I couldn’t even see anything that resembled a festival site. Was this for wristband? Is there another entrance? I can’t belive I’m missing Slaves and probably Eels for this.
Im not sure if many used the bus back to Colon at night but it was a comedy show. Literally a free for all the first night. Disorganised chaos and insane queues for nothing with again no confirmation of being in right place the second.
Everything was sorted by third day when they decided to construct a lane and barrier. Surely this should have been done first!
I was so pissed off about MA as they were my main reason for going. To wait 90mins for any form of announcement was totally on the festival. Overall I do blame MA for being a bunch of ****’s for the mess to start with.
I just don’t think I like these ‘not quite a festival’ festivals. I had same issue with Lola Paris last year. Everyone is very reliant on perfect organisation as nobody is staying and it never works sufficiently.
