My 1st Festival

The highlight was Seeing The Straits, being shocked by Wang Chung, & Roland Gift
I didn't see everyone. So only reviewing the acts I did see.
Bay City Rollers started the festival off with several hits and tartan trousers galore.
Funk legends Average White Band were on top form.
Right Said Fred, Limahl, & Five Star were not my seen, but did a decent enough job,
Katrina Leskanich (Without her Waves) did a great job. Only did 3 or 4 songs, but Walking On Sunshine and Love Shine A Light were included to everyone's delight.
Chesney Hawkes like Katrina only did a small set. Highlight was of course The One & Only.
The last act I saw on the saturday was Midge Ure. Certainly one of the best acts all weekend. Phenominal voice and awesome guitar skill.
I had always preferred the Sunday lineup to the Saturday and thankfully didn't disappoint.
The Christians were amazing.
The Straits were one of the main reason I bought tickets. Made up of former Dire Straits members Alan Clark & Chris White, and several great session musicians. They did a fantastic job recreating some of Dire Straits best known tunes.
The Lightning Seeds were spot on. Ian Broudie's voice is as good as ever.
Adam Ant was definately a fan favourite. The whole arena erupted when he walked on stage, and rightly so. Did a great job on his catalogue of hits.
Only saw a song of Altered Images, but Claire Grogan is still a bombshell and beautiful voice.
Wang Chung were one of the best acts all weekend even though they did a short set.
John Parr was brilliant. The great St Elmo's was a fan favourite.
Roland Gift (formerly of Fine Young Cannibals) was astonishing. What a brilliant voice. He did all his hits, which made him a fan favourite.
The last act of the festival I saw was ABC. Martin Fry still has a beautiful voice after all these years. And hearing Poison Arrow was brilliant.
Overall I'd recommend the festival to anyone. Great music & atmosphere, and less than £100 for a weekend of music.
