    Must agree, Calvin Harris is pretty good live. Saw him at the Capital FM Summertime Ball last year at Emirates and he was awesome.

    I went to western park one. really good weekend.

    Kasabian were good,
    Calvin harris was good.
    Kings of Leon were good

    I would say all bands/artist i went to see put on a good show.

    Just back from Chelmsford after mine 9th year in a row!

    It was good but certainly not the best.

    I didn't think much of KOL, Prodigy were very good and both Scouting For Girls and Newton Faulkner surprised me!

    my first v, theird festival in all having been to reading the previous 2 years.
    I agree about Kings, they perform their songs well but i feel they dont interact with the cround and look lazyon stage.

    I saw prodigy at reading last year, it was surreal.

    And i agree about newton faulkner. scouting for girls played my freshers week 3 years ago and they were brilliant then, really good live performances and they get the crowd involved well - makes for such a good show.

    Any highlights apart from the music?
    I got a free crate of beer from jack collison (west ham footballer) and met my borthers 2 favourite stevenage players (who we support) who came down after beating stockport on sat
    meeting a few of goldie looking chain was good fun too and seeing some poor sod fall face first into the piss soaked mud near the 4music stage.
