2014 saw a more grown-up take on the standard festival. No sunburnt and intoxicated teenagers vomiting warm beer and expensive chips here! With relaxed venues such as St.Stephen’s Church and the famous Bush Hall welcoming the likes of Layla, Hozier and Saint Raymond, the atmosphere was more like a gentle hug of festival goodness than a drunken punch of festival intensity.

That’s not to say there was a lack of life to it; people were crowd surfing in banana costumes and talking to randomers on the street but it was more for fun and general enjoyment than a competition to see who could get drunk enough to eventually down a bottle of their own fluids….. thankfully.
