Ok so I’m back from the weekender after saying for the 3rd year running I’m not going.
Where to start? I could do a blow by blow account of the DJ’s and live acts I heard but to be honest a lot of it is a blur.
I will say that I really enjoyed this one, although its always a great event for some reason there was a very special atmosphere in the air, was it because it was the 50th? Was it because I was in a good state of mind? We will never no but all I can say is every single person I met was in a great mood, every stranger I passed said hello and smiled from the moment we arrived.
Highlights Archie Bell, Chaka Khan, Ben UFO, Jimpster, Neil Pierce, Spen, Basement Boys, Lay-Far and Jonny Miller all impressed me. I missed a lot this year didn’t manage to catch several people I don’t normally miss but I guess I was very caught up in the moment this time.
One glaring omission from the highlights above is Jasper Street Company, I can’t begin to describe the energy and emotion they brought to the finale. It is something I will never forget. They chewed me up and spat me out then proceeded to do it again. Those who where with me saw how emotional I got and that in turn became infectious as we all shared a moment.
Alex, Dave and all involved that was one truly special weekend. I feel elated, inspired and energised. Thank you so very much.
See you next May……….?
