One of the coolest things about rothbury is just the place it self full of rolling hills and trees and plenty of spots to find some shade which is very important to have and a lot of fest don't seem to have any shade at all. The coolest spot to get shade was a place called the Sherwood Forest this was I path through the trees that went from on stage to another. what made the forest even better was when the sun went down the forest had lights and psychedelic art hanging from the trees that glowed and had light shining on them plus fog machines and trippy noises. walking through the woods I felt like I was tripping. I'm sure plenty of hippies were lol.
now on to the music I'm not going to a run down of each band I saw but instead would like to talk about how well the music sounded. Every band i saw was load and clear as hell. The sound systems they brought to this fest were incredible and i do not say this lightly. they spent a lot of money and time getting this right. every stage had grade a sound and when a problem came up it was fixed lightning fast. This by far was the best sounding fest I have ever been to. Every band I saw played like their life depended on it and just feed off the enthusiastic crowds.
If you like going to festivals do what ever it takes to go to this one next year you will not be disappointed. Trust me - I have been to a few of these in the past...
Ps I almost forgot they had Magic hat # 9 on draught and they did not run out until the very end. NICE!!
