My review of the weekend is now up on Trebuchet Magazine, here are a few of my photos from the weekend.
Virgil and the Accellerators were an early highlight, playing some guitar-shredding electric blues.
Heather Findlay played her first full band gig on a big stage since November last year, and went down a storm.
Sankara, fronted by Gareth Jones, formerly of The Reasoning played the CRS stage, and made a strong impression with their mix of hard rock, metal and AOR.
Winter in Eden, fronted by Vicky Johnson, played an absolute blinder as special guests on the CRS stage.
Silverjet. Because first thing in the morning, some back to basics rock and roll is what a festival needs.
Stolen Earth were another band who rose to the big occasion to play one of the best sets they’ve ever done.
Panic Room did what Panic Room do, which was to blow everybody away. They really should have been far higher up the bill.
Chantel McGregor delivered another incendiary set, great songwriting and some spectacular guitar pyrotechnics.
Flanborough Head played some delightful old-school prog. There is nothing quite like a flute solo backed by Mellotron.
Mr So and So impressed me a lot, they came over a lot better than last year.
The mighty Touchstone stormed the stage to deliver an impressive high-energy set.
Mostly Autumn, special guests on the Sunday night and playing their first gig since the end of last year did not disappoint.
