Mud, Muse and music...Leeds festival review

Leeds festival has kicked it off and it is mudtacular! Branham Park was doing its best Glasto impression by being a river of sludge. The rain was continuous and every man, woman and child was wearing a poncho.

Because of the weather the acts that played in tents that may have not been as popular got the biggest crowds through people trying to avoid the rain.

Little Comets were one of these who benefited from the weather, people crammed into the Festival Republic tent, whilst crossing their fingers that it was something they would enjoy. The four piece had fans dotted sporadically around the crowd of opportunists who were really keen to see the band play. They played a small set of placid indie music which made good background music to the crowd chatting amongst themselves.
Next in the avoid the rain and try something new game was Chapel Club in the NME tent, the band had a strong following who were overshadowed by people who wereforaging for shelter.

Unfortunately for Chapel Club they were victim of poor sound. The band, who were a throwback to melancholy band The Smiths, were completely drowned out the singer, who’s microphone didn’t seem to be working. Songs they performed, such as ”˜Five Trees’ were barely audible and only the crowd singing back could be heard.

Enter Shikari tried to make the Main stage come alive with their unique composition of rock and dance music. Fans of the band came to the stage thick and fast. Groups of people ran down manically to the front throwing caution to the elements. Though usually able to entertain large crowds some of Enter Shikari’s music appeared disjointed and their sound was less formulated than normal. The band’s energy wasn’t in short supply and the crowds at the front were thoroughly entertained.

  5. I have not checked in here for some time because I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are good quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend :)

  6. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  7. The color of your blog is quite great. i would love to have those colors too on my blog.
