I went to the 2008 (and last edition)

I saw Pete and the Pirates and Los Campesinos
I think i went to every Summercase - mainly due to the great location.

Los Campsinos were absolutely fabulous that year.

I also remember the likes of Brakes, Shout out Louds, Sigur Ros and oddly OMD all being wonderful.

Alcohol may have been involved
Indeed los Campesinos were on fire! Did you attend the neon neon gig? that was truly bizarre

Doesnt ring a bell.

I remember being worried that no-one would turn up for LC as they were still fairly new and looking round halfway through to see thousands of people going crazy.

:) - even Pete the Pirates were very good and they had one of the worst slots (2:00pm) but there was a 100 strong crowd and people were jumping about

britpop day at the last heineken music festival -- pulp, sleeper, menswear, marion, salad, powder, bluetones ... kind of fun, actually.
I was at this! I dunno, we can scoff at the Britpop line-up now but for a 16-year-old enjoying your first taste of (a) live music and (b) low-grade medicinal lager it was just the thing. Pulp were great, and I seem to remember enjoying Catatonia playing to a tiny crowd on one of the smaller stages, so early on in their career that Cerys was still singing in Welsh! There was also a fantastic Canadian band called Melt who I never heard of again after that day, although apparently there was some sort of unlikey crossover with Hefner...

This thread has reminded me of a festival that someone once put on just outside Sudbury in the mid 90s. It was some kind of total hippy job with trance music, didgeridoos, etc. Crucially there was to be no drink and no animal products on site - totally vegan. That it was held on a beef farm was the height of irony.

I love retro threads on anorak. They're the only ones I've much to contribute, sadly. Well, and the sport and puns ones.

I was at a mini-festy in Sydney a few weeks earlier with some of those bands. Well, Ride and Ratcat. And Falling Joys and Clouds. They were all fucking brilliant.

edit: earlier than that, not earlier than now. Obviously.

There is a photo somewhere on the internet of me juggling teddy bears at this year's indietracks. Sorry.

Not you, Tonieee, you can do whatever you like. Also, have you seen yourself in that new Whitetown video? :)

I've watched it now but didn't spot myself. I'll look again when I can watch it on a computer instead me this tiny little phone.

Did anyone get to any of the Futurama Festivals in Bradford? I always remember looking at the adverts for them in the NME and really wanting to go but being way too young and penniless (and at school) to get there on my own.
