Cracking weekend. Weather couldn't of been better which obviously made a huge difference. Was looking like a bit of a lobster yesterday though!

The highlights for me were The Dykeenies and Does It Offend You Yeah?

DIOYY? wouldn't usually be my cup of tea but went in to see them whilst a few mates just gouched on the grass and they were superb.

Even doing a dump in the toilets was an enjoyable experience. Great festival.

Belladrum Festival...

http://www.tartanheartfestival.co.uk/music.asp

Anyone ever been? Sounds like it's a pretty cool festival and think I might try and persuade a few mates to go. Line-up looks pretty good Idlewild, Cage the Elephant, Sergeant & The Holloways  :thumbsup:

I've been, its a great wee festival with an excellent and very friendly atmosphere.  I'm not going this year as I think its a disgrace that Scouting for Girls are headlining but there's still a few decent acts on.

Belladrum is more about the atmosphere than the bands.  To be honest the only act thats playing that i want to see is col war kids, the rest looked pretty average.  Going to go to loopalu instead this year, heard a rumour that the furries might be headling which would actually make me rather aroused.
Rock ness was the tits though, best weather i've ever had for a festival and saw some brilliant acts.  probably the stand out was the crystal method and hadouken.  Did go see css and underworld but pulled a 6ft blonde and was somewhat distracted so couldnt really tell you what they were like  ;D

My must see list includes British Sea Power, Super Furry Animals, Atomic Hooligan, HerelDeduke, Lowline, Eamon Hamilton (Brakes), Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets), DJ Yoda, Beardy Man and EMF :o
Should manage to see Mystery Jets and Glasvegas too  :wave:

Rockness was brilliant, and the weather was fantastic.

I saw heaps of bands.   Stand outs for me were Digitalism, The Orb, Soulwax, Does It Offend You Yeah? and CSS.  Pete and the Pirates were good.
Its a cracking hassle-free festival, probably the best in Scotland. (miles better than T in the Park for location, atmosphere, Ned count, drink and food options).


Almost ounds too good to be true mate.

I actually thought they were quite good.  A couple of songs towards the end I wasn't too keen on, but on the whole they were pretty good.

BSP and Super Furry Animals were both immense at the weekend.

A new band called Lowline are a real find though.  Anyone that likes BRMC and/or Primal Scream will love them.

The singer did an acoustic version of "Geraldine" for BBC's coverage of TitP.  By christ it was bad.

Lowline you say K?
