On Thursday and Friday I’ll be switching it around and giving you MY take on the acts appearing on the main stage, of course your comments are always welcomed, and hopefully by Saturday I’ll have managed to have invented a time travelling machine which will allow me to get to see all these great acts!

As a side note, special thanks to Mike (I’m not linking to him AGAIN). Your extensive comments are very much appreciated, and I’m formulating a proper way to thank you…
