|...well today started out with a massive deluge that left huge puddles and soggy muddy fields everywhere. Fortunatly the fine local countryside is used to such displays from mother nature, as are the hardy festival goers. Luckily, the rain gave up the ghost as we got into the afternoon, and most bands were given a dry performance time. Weezer arrived on the scene at the end of Mercury Rev's trippy, blissed out set. Soon they were off and The Dandy Warhols took the stage for more mellow madness. Then the White Stripes had another go.. "St. James Infirmary" being a personal fave as it dates back to Josh White and beyond. Finally weezer took the stage to a raucous, loud, and only slightly worn down second-day crowd. I think Leeds is slightly smaller than Reading, and I dont theink it quite sold out the way Reading did, but it still looked like more people than youve ever seen in one place! Everything rocked as it should. Then Jane's played and today they had the treat of sunshine dappling their phenominal set. We packed up and headed back to London after they played, as everyone getting tired and were looking forward to a bed to sleep in and the upcoming day off...
