‘I couldn’t go to the festival on the first day, Friday because I was working which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the gales had set in and by all accounts the campsites were under water. On Saturday my friend and I arrived around mid-day and immediately checked out the local competition; no not the guys, the handbags! A lot of the girls were wearing cross-body bags and although there were some really stylish handbags and shoulder bags, I actually thought mine was the nicest and most rock-chick looking with its sexy jet black leather and brass studs.
My favourite band was without doubt Black Sabbath; after all, who can possibly resist Ozzy? Steel Panther gets the vote for the best parody of a rock band, delightfully taking the mick out of themselves and talking to the crowd more than any other band, so great entertainment value with some very deliciously naughty suggestions thrown in!
I also loved seeing, in no particular order, Tenacious D, Gun, Biffy Clyro and Kids In Glass Houses. Metallica were far better than I ever expected and their stage show with fireworks was truly spectacular.
Thanks to wonderful people I met at the venue, the bands, the dry weather, my dearly beloved friend and my brilliantly useful handbag, I had a fabulous time!’
