Field Day 2009

Posted by Alan on August 1, 2009

Second festival of 2009 for me, Field Day in Victoria Park near Bow. It was a pretty good idea but a bit of a washout.

There were a few OK bands but sound quality wasn’t awesome at any of the stages. And it rained. Quite a lot. Never mind… could have been much worse. However, by MOGWAI they had fixed the sound problems on the main stage and the event bowed out with an awesome Glasgow Mega-Snake. Can’t be bothered with a proper review like… so here are some pictorial highlights 🙂

    I had a great time, despite the questionable weather. For me skream on the main stage was a definite highlight, I was really near the front and the whole crowd were really loving it. Also enjoyed little boots and indeed the fairground ride (before the cider drinking began!) – However, the prices, not very pleasing for the those of a thrifty nature (myself included, and considering the large student population i doubt we were alone) – you might be interested in a competition to win a case of magners pear cider/mini-fridge full of magners. You need to become a fan of the Magners facebook fan page http://bit.ly/MagnersUK – Winners are selected on Thursday – winners will be drawn every week (must be over 18 and UK based!)
