I know I am only speaking as a viewer of the BBC coverage, and obviously have not been shown bands like the big pink, a place to bury strangers, black lips etc... where people might take interest, but all people seem to care about is getting on the big screen and climbing on top of each other.
It looks like its full of kids, who have no clue. People at the front have no idea about what song is on, but when the camera comes flying past they go nuts and OOOO LOOK AT ME, IM AT A FESTIVAL. Although the horrors didnt look like they had their strongest performance, the crowd were DEAD, no-one knew what the fuck was going on. But also all you can see in the crowd are 15 year old girls on shoulders or idiots standing on top of each other....ffs they ruin things for everyone. Flags shouldn't be banned but they should.
The bands didn't even captivate my attention. Radiohead had great lights and a solid set. Bloc party looked fun....but the rest looked bored, playing for arguably a V festival crowd. Sorry.
