The Isle of Wight Festival was brilliant and I had a great time. Do I need to say anymore? Well I think I will otherwise this will be a very short post, but I won?t go into too much detail otherwise you?ll get bored!
(here we all are having a drink on the first day. Ian, Hannah, Steve, Abi, Jonny, Me, Chris, and Emma is taking the photo.)
I didn?t watch all the acts that played, but I did see The Feeling, Groove Armada, and Snow Patrol on Friday; Amy Winehouse, Wolfmother, Ash, Kasabian, and Muse on Saturday; and Paulo Nutini, The Fratellis, Keane, and The Rolling Stone on the Sunday.
I?d have to say that the best act of all were Muse, who were simply amazing, and lived up to all the hype as being a great live band. The Stones were brilliant too, and it may sound obvious, but they were exactly how I imagined them to be, such as mannerisms and interaction with crowd. Kasabian and Paulo Nutini also get special mentions from me, although I enjoyed every act I saw.
The weekend went reletively smooth without much hassle and although I could complain about the toilets or the prices or the queues, I won?t because it was all what I expected. If I wanted to have 5-star luxury then I wouldn?t be camping at a festival.
I?ll do another post soon to go through a bit more but this should tide you over for the mean time and you can also check out the photos below (these change with each refresh and link to the whole album.)
