I saw some great bands (LCD, Flaming Lips, Chrome Hoof, Chic, Caribou), ran into some friends and had a good time, but I still have mixed feelings about the festival. I posted my ever-so-slightly sarky review of Bestival over at Shallow Rave.
OK, as much as I bitched on about Bestival this year, there was some good stuff too. One of the highlights was seeing Chrome Hoof playing avant disco-metal on the fire spitting, spider-shaped retro-futurist Archadia stage. SERIOUS Thunderdome vibes in the area!
