While I agree the old layout was much better, the only real difficulty I had getting around was during the George Clinton set and that was pure chaos all the way to the food stalls. The only soundbleed I noticed was when sets overlapped which was for a few minutes, so not too annoying. I did think we were short changed on the main stage with pop music headlining every night for the second year in a row. Why do we get so many headline acts from the USofA. Surely there are enough festivals for Western middle of the road boredom, Womad is the only one specialising in the rest of the world.. Come on Womad, lets get back to the good old days when headliners came from all over the planet.
