This year was our eighth EoTR and one of the best, I think.
Random thoughts -
Great to have so much happening on Thursdays - we always felt a bit listless in previous years when we arrived early, just waiting around for Friday
Aaron Lee Tasjan got the Friday off to a brilliant start - witty and great tunes/guitar-picking too
Bill Ryder-Jones - perfect for a late sunny afternoon when you're feeling slightly woozy from the great beer and boxed wine
FJM - still not my cup of tea really, but he made for a good headliner and my companions loved it
Robin Ince cheered us all up when we starting to flag a bit during the wet Sunday
Why do so many people leave their empty cans/plastic glasses where they were stood for others to clear up?
When we arrived, I was slightly worried by the preponderance of 'young people' camped around us but they were as good as gold - and from my perspective, there were less chatterers during sets than in previous years
Perfume Genius (didn't play my favourites but he was great nonetheless and will listen more to his most recent albums); Legends of Country were good fun; enjoyed Lucinda W overall but was slightly underwhelmed - thought it was a bit perfunctory (put off a bit by her reading her lyrics from a lectern); Band of Horses
Agree with others about needing more sheltered areas and tables to eat
Some of the food is really expensive now. £8 for a measly portion of fish curry (mainly sauce) and a bit of rice. £11 for burger and chips! (The burger was nice though). Tea bus bacon sandwiches are still great though.
Bill Callahan was beautiful, spell-binding - and the drizzle made it even better somehow
Will be back next year, of course
