Here's my notes taken at Sonisphere:

Saturday )

Sunday )

To finish off here are the bands I saw but didn't mention in the notes above: bands )

And on Monday morning we packed up, said our farewells to those who were awake, and decided we'd rather walk to the station than wait for a coach. Maybe 3.5 or 4 miles in total with big packs in about an hour, letting us get a train home just after 9. Tired, sun-browned and slightly muddy in places but very happy.

As usual I set out with a notebook and started writing the festival up as I went. By halfway through writing up Saturday (on Sunday morning) I gave up. But still, I have the timetable for reference, so I'm sure I can remember enough.

Half of me wishes I'd stayed that bit longer to see the others off properly, but never mind, there's always next year. I've got two tickets bought already, for me and for Mike if he feels like it once they know the lineup. And now I'm just getting over the cold that apparently most of our bit of camp came down with, and looking forward to the next festival more than ever. This was a good one.

W00t!

I've already posted this in several parts, but thought it could do with sticking together. Apologies for the repetition.

And with a tube across to Kings Cross and a semi-fast from there to Cambridge we were soon home. Snogged farewell in the station carpark before Mike and his bike headed one way and I headed another to get home and unpack a little and get clean and sleep. A quiet end to a loud and wonderful weekend. Can't wait for the next time, and even now several days later I wish it hadn't had to end. Taken my camera in to be developed today, so hopefully tomorrow I'll have some pics to go with all this text.

It's getting late. I think Sunday and Monday will have to wait until tomorrow.

I'll start with the notes I made while I was there, which go up to Friday night, and try and write up the rest later.

I'm back, we didn't sink, we did wade through lots of mud, but also saw a lot of damned good music, in nice company, and had some glorious sunshine too. The idea of work tomorrow just doesn't seem real right now. More will follow when I've bathed and had time to write it all down. A wonderful wonderful weekend anyway.

Well, I'm sitting at the computer, I'm in a good mood, and I'm not doing very much, so I might as well get typing. Read more... )

That was a fantastic weekend. I am now shattered and bruised, but at least am clean again. Very very different indeed to Glasto, but while I think some people would enjoy one and not the other I had a really good time. Good company, far too much to drink, great music, lots of silliness, weather not too awful. Couldn't ask for much more really. Mike's mates are all really friendly, and despite a lot of mickey-taking I really liked them. And I'm really overusing the word really. And talking with a much broader Yorkshire accent than I was before the weekend, as a side-effect of spending it with a bunch of folks largely from Sheffield.

Having nearly fallen asleep on the bus back from the station though am going to give tonight's post-pizza a miss and stay in and catch up with rjk. More co-herent write-up should follow. Though again I kept up until halfway through Saturday and then just didn't find time.
