So we’re back from Larmer Tree Gardens – and what a brilliant time we’ve all had. The weather was perfect, the beer was ace and the music was fantastic. Did I say the music was fantastic? This was a veritable feast of live music after an 18 month fast – and it genuinely couldn’t have been any better, from Stereolab‘s rousing opening night headline shot through The Comet Is Coming‘s avant-jazz, Jane Weaver‘s psych folk, Giant Swan‘s industrial techno or the capacity crowd’s at the Uncut Q&As.
Huge thanks to Tom, Sam, Mark and Marc for immense work over the weekend.
