Did no-one do the 'First night finery' ie, dressing super smart this year? I didn't see anyone dressed up as usual, it's always a fun sight on the opening night.
Like I said, I didn't notice anyone dressed up this year but that could've been down to the crowd dispersal over the three screens.

I wonder if these things might be connected.

I was apprehensive about the Vue but it was a wonderful venue. To echo those before the bar area is amazing I liked the stall area and I thought the Disco set up was brilliant. A slight complaint is that the Discovery screens don't have a great rake or bank so my view of Preservation was obscured by a tall man with a flat top in front of me. However it's hardly his fault he was seated in front of a sawn off runt...
Maybe next year I'lll increase my intake of baby bio before the fest.
