How was it for you?
Did you watch it all on TV, like we did, or were you there in the trenches?
Actually we used the BBC’s web app heavily too. With streaming video feeds all day, from all the stages, we managed to catch far more than we’d ever have managed otherwise.
Like everyone else, we watched the Arctic Monkeys and were puzzled by Alex Turner’s weird transatlantic accent. Was it just an act? We also thought that the Rolling Stones were ok, but probably better heard than seen.
The highlights for us, though, were definitely the closing section of the Chic/Nile Rodgers show, and the whole of the Portishead set. If you haven’t seen any of it yet, we recommend this great version of “We Carry On”, with which they closed their performance.
