    Errors, Grinderman, Sigur Rós, Seasick Steve and The Go! Team were the best for me. Was a really great weekend. Russell Howard and Ross Noble had me in tears.

    I think Death Cab were pretty disappointing to be honest.

    @homsar_rb i dunno about nada surf, but with Death Cab, when his guitar is meant to come in all loud etc in Bixby Canyon Bridge it didnt and he got really angry and started complaining. It turned out his volume on his guitar was turned down (realised 2/3 of the way through the track) - i spotted him fiddle with it then all the sound come back. He looked pretty embarassed.

    Broken Records and Slow Club were good, Johnny Foreigner as fantastic as ever, The Wave Pictures good (deserved a bigger crowd), Elbow and Sigur Rós perfect on Saturday and Robin Ince's Book Club was great all weekend. Oh, and not forgetting The Early Edition (Hoonwatch!) and John Hegley too. Great weekend.

    Stewart Lee was genius - but I already knew that! To get half an hour of comedy material from a record he had never listened to was astounding. Also loved Joanna Newsome, Lucy Porter, Lee Mack, Grinderman, the pimms bus, pink sheep, the light show buddah, dancing like a maniac in wellies at guilty pleasures... i could go on Not keen on tents, festival toilets, not being able to have a bath and unpredictable rain....

    Where to start!!!? Absolutely brilliant. Interpol, Grinderman, The Breeders, Frankie Boyle, Joanna Newsom, The Guillemots... The Sunrise Tent had some hidden gems too. Rosie and the Goldbug in particular were amazing.

    What an awesome weekend, Joanna Newsom was the standout for me (even when she forgot the words), plus Sigur Ros were epic. Shame that both Ben Gibbard of Death Cab and the bassist of Nada Surf both got extremely angry at their sound (which sounded fine to me) and ruined their image as nice, shy indie boys. Does anyone know what specifically made them so pissed off?

    i didn't think anything could beat last year's latitude, but joanna newsom, interpol, johnny flynn and ross noble proved me oh-so wrong. but low point: the chips from the pure pie stand. they were rank.
