Huge crowd, and Big Jet Plane was blissful
Birds of Tokyo ...Plans ..amazing
Bloody fantastic, Crowd was absolutely pussy whipped, Warp was insane!
Now for the major ones :
Finally the sun was setting and the lightest of lightest shower was falling, making the atmosphere just blissful.
Sia was cute, and cheeky, playing a wonderful set including the huge older hit Breathe Me, and the wonderful Madonna cover Oh Father.
Highlight : Cloud, You've Changed, Clap Your Hands
9pm LCD Soundsystem
A little disappointing, but maybe because I missed Someone Great, and didn't know most tracks. But was nice to see them live!
Just to see 'em before MIA was on. Interesting, and passionate hard rokcers!
Huge build up, Illy girl went nuts, the crowd was loving it. SHE THREW OUT TO THE CROWD VICKI LEEKS CDS AND I GOT ONE DIRECT FROM MIA'S HANDS!!!
Highlight: Born Free, and the closer Paper Planes!
