Not all good news . . .
However, it wasn’t all good. Complaints aired this week ranged from poor booking decisions (many wondered why the Beastie Boys were in an over-crowded tent) to the atrocious sound from some of the stages.
Whinges about the scarcity of toilets, the failure to make the timetable available in advance, inconsistent security decisions and the bars closing at 10pm were also heard.
“I wonder how long the Electric Picnic can carry on the pretence it’s a boutique festival?” mused one reader. “The campsite was stretched to capacity and the Oxegen rite-of-passage factor seems to be creeping in.”
