Over the weekend we went to Guilfest for the first time. It was a fantastic event, and we had a great time. We saw the Lightning Seeds, Wonderstuff, Gary Numan, A-ha (who were great), The Stranglers, Billy Idol and others. We even saw The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain!
We had great positioning for several groups, for example, we were very near the front for Billy Idol, who puts on a great show. We were in the Mosh Pit for the wonderstuff, and I never even knew they had a Mosh pit!
Of the new bands (at least, new to me), the one I liked best was called 'Kovak'. I also discovered Hayseed Dixie, and now have two CDs signed by 3 out of the 4 band members, Hayseed Dixie are simply fantastic.
I'm already wondering who they might get for next year! Keep a good mix of music, and I'm happy.
