    Pretty sure The Horrors (the only band I really wanted to see) cut their set short due to the fact that NOONE WAS LISTENING!!! Totally agree cargofleet. i only wanted to see the horrors yet everyone was giving them abuse and iw as surrounded bry enter shikari fans

    People complaining about the sound do realise that there's a legal limit on how loud you're allowed to be in build-up and residential areas without being subject to ridiculous fees, right? I doubt the organisers or any of the bands decided they wanted to make the stages incredibly quiet intentionally.

    Fucking terrible. Full of little kids who were there to see Tinchy Stryder and Enter Shikari. Pretty sure The Horrors (the only band I really wanted to see) cut their set short due to the fact that NOONE WAS LISTENING!!!

    The sound quality was poor on the Monday at Spillers, especially for the last 2 bands, the two I travelled to Newcastle to see - The Horrors and Enter Shikari. There were also far too many people there talking in loud voices instead of singing along or listening to those two bands.

    That sucked apart from dananananaykroyd and De la soul, after them we just left to go see the skints at trillians, best choice i ever made.

    what a mess. spillers wharf was badly organised and there just seemed to be to many people in one site. my main gripe though was the sound. i may be 42 but i like my music to be LOUD and the sound here was to muffled and way to quiet. the stereo in my car is louder than the music on show on saturday. the futureheads looked fantastic but the music was drowned out by two people chatting nearby! it was like the speakers were organised by someones grumpy middle aged dad! I'll not bother next time.

    terrible. just terrible. the crowd was awful, sucked the life out of everything and the organisation, sound and security was fucking dire.

    I agree. Sunday was a bad day until after Calvin Harris was done and a lot of the annoying crowd left the main stage.

    Sunday was pretty poor. Overcrowded, overpriced, and the sound was way too low.

    Apparently it's near the Tyne Pub. And just for the record, I can't believe how far down the bill De La Soul are, especially considering that they're undoubtedly the most popular and influential act.

    Line up is average (tinchy stryder LOL). Dananananaykroyd and De La Soul should be fucking awsome though.
