    Today.



    Catch me at DOOM, Snoop, Oneman, Jackmaster+JoyO, Hudmo... or wherever the crowd takes me ('cause really I'm just naming familiar names). But definitely catching the Snoop set.

    Fucking bullshit.
    This was run so badly.

    A big queue for initial festival entry is expected but every single arena had a queue for entry.
    Got locked off at 12 and I DID NOT get to see Snoop perform. So shit. I basically paid 60 to see Digital Mystikz and a few little sections of sets here and there.

    Can't believe I had to cut my holiday short just to come back to this. Shitty end to what was a great week.

    They just didn't know what they were doing.
    Its like they didn't consider the practicalities of their layout and they didn't have enough security to handle the crowds either.

    the organisers obviously didn't take into account the logistical implications when doubling the capacity from 7000 to 15000, and also the fact that the venue only had 1 entrance and 1 exit meant ridiculously long queues thus leading to people tearing the fences down and basically walking onto the festival
