I dont think I've ever seen a better front man/woman performance than that of Karen O from the YYY's. She was absolutely astonishing!

The Good
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs rocked. She is some cool bitch.
DJ Shadow was a major disappoinment. Don't treat us like a bunch of screaming teenagers and play some bloody music. What he did play was excellent but how many times did he stop to make us shout for more and then walking off the stage?!?!?
Hot Chip were brillant.
DJ Mele Mel and the rest were fant-bloody-tastic. Bunch of professionals if I ever saw them!
Body and Soul was again a great spot.
Bodytonic just rocked all weekend. Not even sure who I was at in there but it was always good.
Alabama 3 were a great start to the day.
Michael Franti and Spearhead were fantastic.
The general at atmosphere and the people were amazing - no scumbags anywhere.

The Bad
The toilet situation was way worse than last year, despite their promises. It puts you off drinking any water cos the more you do the more you have to deal with the queue and the stench. Fellas were shitting on the ground by the end of it - SICK!
No taps - I only saw one set in some other campsite - why weren't there any by the other toilets? I know it's a festival but that lack of hygiene is just dangerous.
More food vans and coffee stalls needed. Queues were ridiculous.
Did the bars really have to close so early?
Where were the signposts? I must have done 50 laps of the place.
