First time ive taken my family to a festival, we are local so thought this would be perfect. We didnt camp but the facilities on site i.e toilets showers looked lovely and clean. The food was of a high standard and value for money. We went saturday night and sunday all day, the weather was simply exausting, but still wonderful. Saw Donovan saturday night. im not a fan but he was suprisingly good. Sunday was a Great day for music the highlight for me was seeing a band id never even heard of called beetroot kings. There was alot of talk about them round the festival so i sheltered from the sun in the beer tent to see them. fantastic atmosphere in there they totally lit up the afternoon getting all the crowd singing along to them. only downside was the long breaks between artists. We were front of stage to see the levellers acoustic and as always they performed very polished and got everyone jumping about. This is a great festival for families and having a relaxing weekend. i hope it comes to Utoxeter again 2011 i will certainly be attending.
And all round fun and relaxing weekend listening to great artists some big some small but a great mix. highlight of the weekend? BEETROOT KINGS hands down the best band there. supurb.
