Ok here's my review:
Avatar 8 great start to the festival. They just make me feel happy.
Dragonforce 6 Had to see them. Have now. Probably won't again. Just feels too eurovision to me.
Marmozets 7 Who wears pink breeks though?
Volbeat 9 Great band and they nailed it. Again.
A7X 10 Haters gonna hate but Gates is right up there with the other headliners axemen. Their Floyd cover blew the GnR version out of the water and I thought they were brilliant.
Whisky Myers 6 Nice mellow start to the day.
Monster Truck 7 Very under rated band. Really enjoyed them.
Thunder 7 Solid performance but it's an old man doing dad dancing.
Black Stone Cherry 8 You forget how good they are because they are on too often.
GnR 9.5 If Axl hadn't whined his way through a couple of songs these would have been band of the weekend. He can't do it anymore but overall they are still amazing. I had no issue with the covers but A7X did Wish You Were Here better. 3 hours felt like 15 minutes to me. Didn't even go for a pint or a pish.
Dream State 8 Big surprise, this is what Paramore and the Marmozets should sound like. Hopefully a big future for these.
Greta Van Fleet 9 Greatness in its infancy. I get the feeling this lot will never be on a 2nd stage ever again and will likely headline. Awesome vocals done effortlessly but the rest are super talented too.
Turbonegro 9 By this time the awesomeness was overloading. They were amazing and fun. Why have I never seen them before.
Puppy 7 Caught last few songs. Good band but more chilled out than the previous ones so I was able to prevent a critical burnt out
In This Moment 7 Sound was crap to start. Bit surreal at that time of day but I like their stuff and it was ok mostly.
BVB 4 I wanted to like these. They sound ok if you don't look at them. I looked and the sound was really poor. Sacked them off for..........
Thrice 9 Had a real moment watching these in the sunshine. Brilliant performance. Will be checking out all their stuff now rather than just the few spotify tunes I had listened to.
Myrkur 8 A complete contrast to everything so far and pretty amazing. Has to be experienced. Made my pal go into some kind of trance.
Alexisonfire 7 One of the bands I was most looking forward to. Wasn't all I hoped. Dunno why, just felt a bit flat.
Rise Against 8 Better than the last time on main but not as great as I was hoping. I'm going to have to go to one of their own indoor shows aren't I?
Ozzy 9 Held it together well enough. Enough now though. Zakk was mesmerising. Overall a great show but I'd hate to hear it without the crowd drowning Ozzy out
Band of the weekend A7X. No you fuck off.
Sunday was best day.
Food of the weekend Duck fat roasties. Again.
