The fantastic thing about it, of course, is that the tag line of the festival is absolutely right: it's not just about music. The RSC was there, for example, along with a whole host of comedians like Phill Jupitus, Marcus Brigstocke, and Ardal O'Hanlon. But, alas, no Radio 4 tent this year.

The atmosphere was somewhat disrupted, though, by the bizarre inclusion of Crystal Castles and Empire of the Sun, two acts which really don't fit into that festival... at all.

Also: Jonsi was awesome >_>. -- News and features will be returning shortly...

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
