This weekend RHOL travelled a massive 17 miles to WF3. Loads of music acts, dj’s and kids activities; music started at 1pm and went on until midnight. Fires around the stage for people to sit round – no moshing, no crushing; everyone guaranteed a great view.
We managed to get a great view of the stage from our tent and used the opportunity to test out some new dutch oven recipes.
The kids enjoyed watching Henry Morris, a very talented 12 year old fire dancer (picture by Paul Melville). Saturday night’s closing act, Project Redshift, did a great job at getting the crowd dancing and Beesqueeze performed some interesting reggae versions of pop classics.
Most of the bands were excellent, with a eclectic range from bluegrass to reggae, rock and pop. Some great original music, some well known classics and some interesting covers (bluegrass Bare Necessities, anyone?). Shout out to a great singer-songwrite called Mary Red who wasn’t even booked, but stood in for a band who had dropped out. She didn’t have backing tracks, using YouTube on her phone, and she sounded fantastic for it. Even the RHOL dogs had a great time! There aren’t many festivals you can BBQ right by the stage and take your dog, your kids, your beer. Thank you to the organisers and all those who made us welcome.
