Anyone been this year?
What did you think?
I have heard more complaints about the audiences this year. Apparently, lots of people left halfway through Sigur Ros; Alex Turner complained that the crowd were half asleep, and people talked through the quiet bits of Ludovico Einaudi show this week.
Isn't this because people enter all the competitions whether they like the band or not? You then end up with a load of bored Dizzee Rascal fans at a Jack Johnson gig.
Surely, a better suggestion would be to limit people to enter 5 of the 30 dates, entrants would have a better evening as they have probably entered to see a band that they have heard of, and the acts would like it as they have a more responsive audience.
