Yes I agree, I know what they were trying to do but it didn't quite work. I loved the open access to the arboretum though. Relaxed and quicker access to and from arena but I mussed a few acts I wanted to see because of slow and restricted crowd movements between stages. There was a lit of sound bleeding I agree and who's idea was it to give the open air poets and story tellers close to ecotricity stage microphones. At one point all I heard when I sat right at the front of ecotricity stage during a performance was some idiot ranting on instead of the sedate singing and delicate instrumentation sounds of an incredible act. Even the singer had to stop and wince.
