So who went to rockness?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't overly impressed by the lineup this year, but got a little bit drunk on saturday in the casino and ended up getting a taxi to inverness... once it stopped raining it was actually a really good day!

The X-certs were a fantastic start to the main stage, shame the crowd wasnt that big though!

Saw hadouken and the maccabees too, they were both good! Tommy reiley was blasting out a few songs in the vip bar with his acoustic at random times of the day, it was proper nice and chilled out till it got megabusy at the bar!

Best part of it was definatley blondie though, was about 2 rows from the front for her, and she was awesome! can't believe i actually saw blondie, always been a guilty pleasure of mine!

Who did you see?:up:

I was there all weekend. It was good fun.

Saw the following:

Pendulum, Enter Shikari, Friendly Fires, Ian Brown (terrible), Plan B, 2 Many DJ's, Twin Atlantic, Hadouken, Maccabees, Blondie.

Was going to stay for the Strokes, but we were shattered and headed off back to Aberdeen about 8pm.

Forgot how much I hate camping..... and am off to Glastonbury next week. Schoolboy error.

Note the old guitarist in Blondie wasn't actually playing? Was fucking hilarious!

Saw heaps of great bands, the Strokes were a personal highlight, absolutely amazing.

On the Sunday I saw the Xcerts, Dananaykroyd, Meusault, Bloody Beetroots and Vampire Weekend as well. Definitely my favourite day.

I saw Friendly Fires, a bit of Fatboy Slim, Toddla T, Aphex Twin, Hot Chip DJ set, Dananananaykroyd, Blondie, Bloody Beetroots, Meursault, Vampire Weekend and The Strokes.

The Strokes and Aphex Twin were probably the highlights for me.

Absolutely shattered now though.

I only noticed that Aphex Twin were playing it whilst I was in Edinburgh on Friday night. Would have been great to have seen them:him:it live.

This is even worse then your Feugh Fest post. Haven't you realised by now that no one is impressed?

Legend. You are George Best, Oliver Reed and James Cordon rolled into one.

I hate James Cordon.

How much was a taxi to Inverness?

A taxi to the sneck would be about 200. So if he's telling the truth, he's a total cunt for having that amount of money to piss away, and if he's lying, then he's a lying cunt.

Either way = cunt.

194 acording to the wee book of prices in the taxi... he did it for 150 though.

So you paid more money just to get there for one day than it cost for a camping ticket for the entire 3 days?

YOU KERRRRRRAZZZEEEEEEEEE

I'm liking the image of the "megabusy" bar. I bet you could get pretty far for 194 on a Megabus.

Where's this Feugh Fest post?

One of my mates told me about that festival but spelled it 'Feuch Fest', so i googled what that meant and was kind of intrigued as to what kind of festival he was talking about.

He also said "it's really nice to just chill with a beer in the pub and watch the feuch outside the window"

Oh also i went to Rockness, but i only saw what was in the Rizla arena as i was working for them, but i had a great time.

Martyn is probably the best house dj i have seen since the 90s.

Grandmaster Flash was quite awkward to deal with and then played a set of student union friendly tunes, giving it lots of lemon on the mic.
