Sorry I am old, what does gash mean.. ? Was maceo good or not?This was my third time at J2 - went on Saturday.
There have been improvements every year; this year there were big improvements in crowd flow under the bridge due to two exit at either side, allowing people to leave the area without fighting through the crowd, and people to get to the front easily.
Main arena was improved in terms of layout, sound and production, with raised platforms.
Sound quality improved in all areas.
Even though it rained on Friday and Saturday morning, the site was largely dry due to intelligent use of chip wood and other materials on the floor.
Very short queues all round - entry, bars, etc. Decent crowd, happy people, no trouble.
Posh loos a waste of money this year; longer queues than the normal queues.
Heaps of food and drink options available.
The best electronic music festival in the UK - would never do Glastonbury, don't do camping.
Set of the day Capriati under the bridge; much better than when he played Motion in Bristol.
Went on to Fabric after where Maceo was gash, and Dax J was decent; crowd at Fabric was full of wrong ones and pushy idiots.
