Day one: Iggy and the Stooges, Bright Eyes. Iggy is incredible and so distorted and the stage invasion is breathtaking! Bright Eyes is great, he has a large band including string section for some songs, and they´re all dressed in white. Conor is kinda cute, but he needs a haircut. Los Planetas are interesting but I´m too busy talking, and then we are all surprised by the Brazilian Girls. Nice atmospheric jamming, all good until the breakbeat starts jarring.
Day two: spent all day recovering on beach. Very good day. Saw Wilco, lovely lovely, then rocked out to Dinosaur Jr. Saw a little of Devo and nothing else.. spent most of the evening at our meeting point (the second tree).
Dayt three: spent all day recovering on beach. Good sleep. Went into festival early ish to see Peter Bjorn and John, gratified to witness ´Young Folks´ and enjoy mass whistling session. Then we went to see CSS, but I came over a little faint and needed some air so we only caught Á La La´ from outside.. poor sound - that was a bummer. Also there was a power cut mid-set! Highlight of the evening was the Magic Numbers. They are so cute. Saw the B-52s, then traipsed over to see the Human League - really wanted to hear ´Don´t You Want Me´. It was great.
Now we´ve said goodbye to our gang and it´s just me and Ange once more. We have a stellar lineup for tonight, including Calexico, Kings of Leon, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Amy Winehouse (only those two clash, dumb), BRMC, Muse and live Unkle. We´ll see how we get on with all that lot!
Probably tomorrow we´ll head towards Valencia, and make our way up to Barcelona. Ange is heading to London at the end of the month, but I´m toying with the idea of visiting Italy and maybe, just maybe heading back to Turkey.
