Day two at the Cropredy Festival

We did have the aim to get up early and get our place in the festival this morning but we were so shattered that we didn't get up till 10.00am so that went wrong! Yep it was wet and raining again but who cares. We had to quickly get our stuff together and meet up with all the rest of our friends who were all ready there. We were a bit further back but it wasn't too sad because if you want to see someone close up you just go up the front.
We then took a walk to The Brasenose pub as the first band was on at midday which we wanted to see. They play in the back of a trailer in the pub garden. The festival also started at twelve but the joy of this event is that you can pick and choose who you want to see.

We were in for a treat when we saw a young lad, Blair Dunlop, who was just eighteen on a acoustic guitar who played it very differently. We then wandered back to Derwent6 for some lunch and sat and listened to a couple of bands before heading back to the main arena. We got another treat in seeing the 3 Daft Monkey's who were brill..........We also watched Little Feat, but the highlight for us was a group of eleven players who played all sorts of instruments including brass, wind, strings and percussion called Bellowhead. A great headliner, it all finished at midnight and we got back to Derwent6 at 12.30pm, Shattered for the second day!!!!!
