I awoke with a smile on my face, it was going to be a great festival.
Spent Thursday morning selling programmes with Zeb, and generally getting into the festival spirit
Missed the start of Fun Lovin' Criminals (and they would have to play Scooby Snacks, the only one of their songs that really works live, first so I missed most of it), but they were definitely better than the last time I saw them. Great stuff. Also saw Skunk Anansie and Republica, who were both about average (I've seen them both play better) and checked out Urusei Yatsura. Beth Orton wasn't anywhere near as good as when I saw her at Brighton, the stage seemed a bit big for her. Shane McGowan was his usual "entertaining" self. Anyone who's seen him live will know what I mean. David Bowie was superb as usual. Can't remember what else I heard.
Spent hours and hours (or so it seemed) waiting for Robert Newman to appear at about 2 in the morning to read a bedtime story. I was really looking forward to this as I had visions of Winnie the Pooh at Green Belt 96 (you just had to be there) but he read a deadly serious story, and I wasn't in the mood for it at 2:30am
