Saw an ambulance barrel up to the big top whilst Girl Band were playing - nothing serious I hope?

Young guy did something to his knee (ligament damage, I think) in the mosh pit. Got carried out by others and attended to.

Anyone catch Golden Dregs on the garden? Magical stuff. 

Yes, really nice. great start to the day. Only spoiled by clash with Melin Melyn but that was rammed and too early for me to jump about! He did a Piano stage set too I think - that must have been good.

I had a great time! As many have said, Little Simz was incredible and probably my highlight but so many to choose from. Already dreaming of my return next year to watch Rob Auton do basically the same routine for the 4th EOTR in a row and to still come away beaming. 

The only question I have left is, what happened to the missing eggs??!

yeah, that Melin Melyn was superb, one of the best sets of the weekend but bloody hell, it was sweaty and humid in there, proper soupy.

Although I enjoyed it, this was perhaps my most disappointing set of the weekend. The cover of Orange Juice's Rip it Up just emphasised the comparative weakness of the writing in their own songs.

 Just my opinion - don't flay me alive people.

Real shame they didn't get them in for a late night surprise act. I was really hopeful, and apparently they were up for it. Just got to see last song from the back of the queue outside after Golden Dregs, and it looked great. Maybe saved me from getting Covid on the first full day though 😉

Really enjoyed the Big Joanie Teepee set. Apart from a couple of listens pre festival they’d passed me by. Seems they’re pretty expensive to catch live now, playing O2 venues and just about impossible to buy Sistahs on vinyl for a sensible price.

Really good. I saw them in 2017 at the Supersonic festival. Then they got on the Karaoke doing early Black Sabbath

Did William Doyle manage to sort his gremlins out... Was too hot in there for me to stick that out but really felt for him... The couple of tracks he managed to get through before i left sounded great tbf

Sadly not, he did 2 more tracks, one of which failed half way through at an epic moment (may have been an East India Youth track). I stayed to the end and he got a lot of love; what I did hear was wonderful.

Was he on his own or with a band? 

On his own. Laptop just kept cutting out completely on him mid flow. Was pretty much a disaster. He managed to get through "i need to keep you in my life" and it sounded fantastic tbf. Hardly anyone left from what i saw... I felt awful sneaking out myself tbh but the heat was killing me.

I've seen him (under his 'William Doyle' name) both with a band and solo, and it did seem to work better playing with with others to be honest...seems like when he's on his own theres just so much for him to do. 

Such a shame to hear what happened to him though, as he's always saying how much he loves EOTR and I've seen him around the festival site even on years he wasn't playing.

Teleman we’re poor (and I frikkin love Teleman) because of their technical issues.  Faffing around between songs killed the flow and, on top of that, I don’t think going down to three and losing their keyboard guy is working.  It cost them a song during the set too. Dropping Repeater from the set list was also an odd choice imo as it’s well suited to bigger crowds to get them jumping.  I doubt many came away wanting to see them on tour which is a shame as they are usually good fun.
