Range of artists. General laid-back, fun, family friendly atmosphere. Compact site. Well-organised parking thanks to the stewards.
Weather. Descent into chaos. Losing some advertised acts.
Was only at The Acoustic Festival of Britain Sunday and Monday, but had a great time. Enjoyed most of the artists. The weather wreaked havoc of course and it would have been good to have chalk boards in each of the marquees or beer tents to give us the latest on who was going to play where and at what time. Big sympathy for those rushing around organising the best possible outcome in the circumstances tho.
Shame that a fantastic set by Midge Ure was lost to bad sound quality. Don't want to list all I liked because there was so much - but I want to say how great Swans in Flight were and that I'm delighted with the album and the Boss Hoss! - an hilarious end to Sunday night.
