The third day starts with one of the four winners of BML Emerging Talent Competition: Your Illuminations. Opening the last day of the fest isn’t ideal for a band as people are tired and partly hungover, but it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the York based trio who start their set with ’Stay XVI’. The frontman Robbie starts running and jumping around, getting the crowd to do the same while singing their soon to be released ‘Glitter’.
It is Marsicans’ turn to set the Discovery Stage on fire. With a recent single ‘Too Good’ added to some old bangers, the Loiner pop band lights up the mood for this Sunday early afternoon. After getting on the Main Stage, High Tyde, the quartet from Brighton, finally gets the first mosh pits of the day with their hit ‘Dark Love’.
We decided that today would be the day we would enjoy what the festival had to offer else than the music, even if we get to see less bands. We can tell how amazing the spring rolls are but not as much as the veggie pizzas. The bar is huge but it can be difficult to reach it when the field gets crowded throughout the night. The tattoo artist is an original but perfect idea for those who want to keep an eternal souvenir of the weekend and it got fully booked pretty soon.
Even with all these distractions, there is no way we would miss Get Inuit. After seeing them at their headline show at the Dingwalls last May, they’re everything we expect from them: the funniest yet talented band.
The Wombats, headliners of the day, arrive more than 30 minutes late due to technical problems: their gears being stuck at the airport, they have to borrow another band’s equipment. Even if the crowd sings along to hits like ‘Moving To New York’ or ‘Let’s Dance to Joy Division’, some decide to leave the site early as the performance doesn’t reach their expectations. The set is way shorter than expected, but the fireworks with the sound of The Wombats in the background is still an awesome way to end the weekend. Once the sky becomes dark again, we give a last sight to the field and leave the site after three days of music.
