Chances are that those at Glasto won’t see anything better than tonight’s headliners.
Less than perfect sound but a glorious celebration of 36 years of The Mission.
Seven and a half thousand people have very clearly had a fantastic evening, Keane have absolutely smashed it out of the woods, just like they did the last time that they were here.
The music can be uncomfortable, unsettling, but simultaneously honeyed and sweet. The juxtaposition is what makes it such an engaging act to see and hear.
... what a marvellous and memorable day it has been? As the song says, ‘We’re just having a good time’. See you next year for more of the same please.
I really hope this festival returns next year. It was a joy to witness and it proves that there is not only the audience in Norfolk but there's talent too. See you next year, same time, same place.
Dat Brass, not bad but it didn’t ignite for Pavlis.
I would not have missed this evening's show for anything. However, twenty four hours on, I cannot help musing on how this was something of an opportunity missed
The band are tight, every song is performed with surgical precision – it’s proper pop music. It’s got mass appeal and it seems like they as a band have tapped into something.
Levitation Orchestra's sound is a potent cocktail of uninhibited energy and elegant exploration, bound together by an egality of interwoven
Shibe was an absolute gentleman, talking us through each piece, and playing to the wonderfully attentive audience with virtuosic confidence and class.
By the time they close with Tiny Head, what could easily have been a disaster has been turned into a massive TRIUMPH.
..the sparkle in her eye tonight, and the obvious love shared between mother and son, turned this Spiegeltent show into a wholly unforgettable experience.
It was a good showcase of a few bands from Australia that are doing indie music a little bit diff
These three musical artists delivered a venerable tribute to Jenny Lind that was sensitive, informative and beautifully presented
The Exaudi Vocal Ensemble took to an otherwise bare stage to perform a selection of Carlo Gesualdo Madrigals that were dripping with melancholy and emotion. Using only the considerable power of their voices, this unamplified concert was the music the acoustics of St Andrews Hall were built for.
...the audience tonight were treated to something rather special, listening to a fresh generation of musicians discover and revive the songwriting treasures of the past
Petrie's fierce musical stand for the things that she feels passionate about has triumphantly fired the bellies of another festival audience.
Slowly, very slowly, the sense of something musical emerged, as if the performers were teasingly grappling for out of reach harmony. Only then did Cooper join the party, with delicate, gossamer light touches on the piano. Subsequently, he would play music of sublime beauty, as Daniel Pioro prowled around the performance area, accompanying and complementing faultlessly.
Intelligently structured and intense surmises the music of the evening
What Confidence Man do is some distance from my usual tastes but – as with Self Esteem –the music is different and strange enough to appeal to me whilst being dance-oriented pop enough to appeal to the mainstream and keep this crowd groovin’ like loons.
...an absolute joy to rock out to new album tracks- they were raw, heavy and full of life (I particularly liked “Best of Me” and Wolfman) and perfectly interspersed between their well-loved classics.
What I got was a seamless set list of quite brilliant, and quite brilliantly performed, tunes.
Ride are fantastic and this has been one of the best gigs I have seen so far this year.
As a performance, it’s difficult to categorise – it slides between gig, clubnight and art show.
This was a fine display of extremely talented musicians playing technically complicated music not just for the sake of showing off their chops but because they enjoy it.
After an explosive delivery of ‘Serafina’, they slip into the operatic closing track on Stray ‘Machete’.
The Genre-bending band, definitely put on a show which keep your eyes glued to their movements and subconsciously dancing along to their hyper tunes
The Surrey-born star shows what it takes to keep a crowd mesmerized by catchy tunes with deeper meanings, definitely delivering a night that was ‘10/10’ (Excuse the pun).
...the Weller obsessives are treated to an array of Weller and Jam tracks of various hits, album tracks and misses from a back catalogue that now spans over the past fifty years going back to those very early Jam days.
