Lynks was great fun as an opener. Interesting test how I felt about crowds. Didn't bother me at all tbh. Kept more distant with less dense crowds. Shame I couldn't find their late night set.
Acts I hadn't really heard before I enjoyed- The Staves , Dream Wife,Lola Young, Longest Johns (not normally my kinna thing but I got a bit emotional seeing families dancing and having fun, maybe sleep deprivation kicking in then 😉 haha)
Acts I knew - CMAT, Cherym, Just Mustard & Orla Gartland. Sunrise was a lovely wee area. Nicer toilets, shorter bar queue, shade. Trekked there rather than wait on main stage queues.
Highlights- Hot Chip was right in amongst it, took a bit of a fuck it risk but what a release . Dancing in the dark cover was euphoric. Chem bros were amazing, didn't stop dancing . Was ready to stop as my feet aching but started up again for the encore. Gonna try and go see them at trnsmt (I'll stand at the back and go late to avoid the kids but that convinced me it'd be worth it.) Bombay bicycle club were my 2nd last gig and I was really quite sad when I saw them so had a great time singing along and dancing to a well-paced set 🙂
Honourable mentions to Club de fromage , discoshed picking me up when I was ready to leave and abba disco for just being fun and an atmosphere that everyone just wanted to squeeze everything out of this weekend and why not!
