What an amazing festival, absolutely shattered from the amount of time I spent at music but was incredible value for money.
Mini Mansions: Quality set, Mikey's style is great and got really into it in the heavier songs.
The Night Cafe: They looked bored, I got bored halfway through and left but crowd were loving it.
You Me At Six: Josh's iffy vocals are cancelled out by his stage presence, loved every second of that set. Great setlist too
The Wombats: Solid festival band, can play that setlist over and over again and I wouldn't mind it.
Royal Blood: Holy shit. Blew it out of the park. APE next year or something surely
The 1975: Production was out of this world, what a bold move opening with People.
Boston Manor: One of the highlights of my weekend, great energy and drew a pretty massive crowd. One of the few bands in pop-punk with a cutting edge.
Slowthai: Crowd was absolutely nuts, he'll be absolutely massive soon.
Dinosaur Pile-Up: Great last minute booking, vocalist has improved a lot. Drew a surprisingly big crowd too.
Billie Eilish: All my (basic) mates are obsessed with her and I was very intrigued and excited, but the performance felt dry other than the first and last songs. Sound wasn't great either.
SWMRS: As always, they absolutely smashed it. Guitars sounded awesome and setlist choice was nice and refreshed from Community Fest.
Stand Atlantic: Solid band, great sized crowd and really enjoyed the set.
Bullet For My Valentine: One of the best sets of the weekend, sound was phenomenal. Drew such a big crowd and their mashup of Tears Don't Fall with All My Life was superb.
Frank Carter: Incredible energy as always, loved his stage setup. Defo grabbing a ticket for Ally Pally
ADTR: Bit disappointed, crowd wasn't the best and Jeremy's vocals always seemed half a second behind the band. Not a fan of the new direction they're going and I no longer feel they can headline DL next year. Setlist was nice though.
Foo Fighters: By far the set of the weekend, was 2 rows back and every song was incredible. Compared to their gig at the Olympic Stadium, songs actually felt less dragged out than usual and a pretty perfect length. Rick Astley moment was class as usual, my band steal that mashup and do it at our shows! What a way to close the festival.
