Meat Katie, Elite Force, Dylan Rhymes, Lee Coombs, Kid Blue and Zodiac Cartel are all spinning on the same bill. There's a stunning Funktion One rig, state of the art visuals, a full blackout tent and a seemingly endless 5am license to party. Let's also not forget the hundreds of total, hedonistic, Scots nutbags who live & breathe a no-holds barred party aesthetic.
There's also the weather, which has been amazing ... the storm clouds moved off as the music kicked in on Friday, and the sun shone so hard on Saturday, many of the fair-skinned locals were left glowing like pulsating orbs by the time the evening came around.
In the main field, Dreadzone trotted out their identikit festy-friendly schlock, whilst the Zutons upped the ante & put in a fine performance on the Saturday night which compensated somewhat for the stodgy tedium of the Human League on Friday night ... but as with most festivals, it's about the minutiae really, and those classic moments spent with friends, new & old alike.
This can only be Wickerman, 2009.
