Went on the Friday, here's some thoughts.
Great to be back at a festival but totally glad I only did one day. Captured everything I wanted to do and went to every area of the arena. Thought the BBC Sounds tent was incredible, best moments were Dream Wife and Squid with Lucia and the Best Boys not far behind.
Felt BBC Sounds attendees were having fun, actual pits compared to main stage where I thought the younger people (I mean I am only 20) were a bit yobbish - throwing things onstage (Joff of Wolf Alice had to dodge something), shoving after a song ended to get further infront and the general vibe of the Obelisk I didnt like compared to Sounds. I mean during Declan McKenna (who I was watching while eating) you could tell the post GCSEs were out in full force.
Wolf Alice were incredible though and I can definitely see them pushing for the top spot at Glastonbury in the future and maybe even RandL this year if Queens of the Stone Age have to pull out. Great mix of tunes and as someone else said that run of Squid and Wolf Alice was one of the best I have seen.
Loved the comedy stage while waiting for a musical act - Jessica Fostekew was a great act I caught that I had never heard of.
Would I go back? Maybe a day again, wouldn't do the full weekend but only if there is an act I really want to see like Wolf Alice, with an undercard like Squid and Dream Wife, 5hrs of train travel to Bolton was very draining but after two years it had to be done.
Pint prices were ridiculous but after so long I made up for lost time. After seeing Fontaines at the Roadmender followed by that day of music - its great to be back.
EDIT: Oh and totally jealous of those seeing Chems.
