What a nice festival.
Joanna Newsom - absolutely mesmerising, enchanting, beautiful etc. First time I'd seen her solo and it was much, much better than when she has a band. Just so perfect.
The food - Rather than spend money on alcohol, I decided to eat as much as I could. Had some delicious dishes; Tibetan curry, Pieminister, Steak sandwiches near the Garden stage, BBQ platter and cheeseburger from The Story, Goan fish curry. WE HAVE TO GO BACK.
Bob Log III - Never laughed so much at a festival before. "God damn, Bob Log" :')
Tinawiren - Many people describe Omar Soulemayne as the LCD Soundsystem of world music. If that is true then Tinawiren are its Coldplay. Always put in a good shift when your festival requires desert rhythms.
The Garden stage - Loved that stage, especially when the sun was out. Shame there were hardly any good acts on it though.
The sound - They did a great job with it, particularly for Joanna and Mogwai. Clear and loud.
Other noteworthy performances in order of goodness:
Lanterns on the Lake
Three Trapped Tigers
Fresh & Onlys
Arriving 5 minutes too late for The Rat, catching only the last song of The Walkmen's set :( (also missing most of Friday)
The weather - it was mainly pleasant but very confusing - from Saharan to sub-zero in the blink of a cloud.
The number of preppy teenagers - they should ban all teenagers from the festival.
Zola Jesus - probably the one set where the sound was shit.
It ended too soon.
