Mostly Saturday Bands.
Lot of fun. All the good bits of British Pop Rock without sounding like everyone else.

Brown Birds Of Windy Hill
Pleasant way to start the festival but too Eagles-ish for me.

Having [over]heard nothing except their hit Vitriol I was happily surprised with the performance.

Band Of Horses
I like this stuff and Band Of Horses are certainly good at what they do. The Drones are their favourite band so that's got to count as well. Mike Noga and Dan Luscombe join them on stage to hit things and drink beer.

My set of the weekend. As far as I can tell The Drones are the best rock band in the world at the moment. Really looking forward to the next album. And to think my plan was to see some of this set then take off to the main stage to see The Fratellis [who were fine apparently].

Simply amazing. Should be horribly pretentious but it works so well. If what they did was rock it would be a close tie with the Drones :)
