In both instances I should have just headed for a decent DJ somewhere.

Ah the joy of hindsight!

I honestly think that's the headliner fallacy, the idea that come that final slot you "should" be at one of the main stages having the time of your life. Every year I try not to fall for it, and every year I do the same bloody thing 😄

Saturday 2017 and Sunday 2013 both stand out to me as nights where I just wandered about a bit aimlessly. In both instances I should have just headed for a decent DJ somewhere.

We did exactly that. Goldies Rave set at Arcadia was quality in 2017

I always naturally default to the Pyramid if there's nothing on I fancy.

I ended up outside the Crow's Nest for King Gizz

We did too, absolutely rammed in there. That was about 11:30 from memory after the stages had closed down.

Saw the first few songs from the Foos and couldn't stomach the hubris and the  banter. Wandered off the long way via West Holts up to the Crows nest.

I loved it, one of my favourite Pyramid shows. The banter and cheese is part of the entertainment. The crowd were as much a part of that show as the band

Yeah, ditto. The crowd were extremely in the mood for Dave's arsing around and enabled that extra layer of flab, moreso maybe than he usually could have got away with. A real case of crowd and headliner on the same wavelength.

Could have done with an extra Breakout or Generator, but hey, it's fine. Extremely fun show.

Think this is what frustrated me, they could have played Stacked Actors, Breakout, The One and Hey Johnny Park in the time they spent arsing around.

It's Breakout that truly rankles. They play it at every other occasion, it would have drawn a ferocious reaction, given a boost during the flabby middle and yet... no. Come on Dave, pull ya finger out next time.

I appear to remain in the efests (at least vocal) minority of having thoroughly enjoyed the Foos.

Didn't realise it was a thing. Thought they were brilliant and absolutely loved it. I completely lost our group of 8 between Other Stage and Pyramid...ended up following the wrong group of people, rather intoxicated obviously, and with zero phone battery. Soon snapped out of that when they stopped and I realised it wasn't my mates. Watched the whole gig chatting to folk around me (including the group who had the dreaded "Monday is Coming" flag).

Anyway. Great show!

I saw the first fifteen minutes of the Foos and enjoyed it but decided their set would basically be another five versions of that, so ambled off to the SE corner and enjoyed Dizraeli at the Rumshack much more.
