Baby Metal – not actual babies, but proper pop metal. I am now a big fan of this lot.
Fidlar – no fiddles, they’re not needed, these guys are superb.
Marmozets – even better than last year. Super awesome!
Slaves – the true spirit of late 70s punk lives on in these blokes, although maybe with a sprinkle of Jilted John. A great band though.
Spector – not Phil obviously, but they have got even better than the last time that I saw them.
Circa Waves – confetti waves at the end, this will be a hard band to follow. Brilliant!
Wolf Alice – not big and bad, but not bad. But a bit of a comedown after Circa Waves. We left their set a little early to see Royal Blood.
Royal Blood – a really well deserved Main Stage for this powerful band. The singer did try a little too hard on being cool though.
Bring Me The Horizon – can you actually bring anyone the horizon? I think not, however that really doesn’t matter. This band deserves to be immense. I reckon that they will headline the Main Stage here very soon. Probably on of the UK’s finest rock bands at the moment. I should add that the band’s public service announcement was hilarious.
Metallica – wow what a masterpiece of a show! It worked for the Metallica family and the more casual fans. The music and visuals were supremely good.
the people that we met today made it like a mini United Nations of rock. Two Metallica fans from Belgium and thanks for the band recommendation of Black Box Revelation. Then to the Metallica super fan from Spain who stood in the same spot for twelve hours. Dude we are not worthy. He also pointed out the band’s producer and manager along with members of Slayer in the mixing tower behind us. We also bumped into the Cheltenham crew again and there was not a hangover present in any of them.
two down and one to go, let’s see what day 3 brings! Hopefully no burrying!
