The V Festival was excellent. I saw all the bands I wanted to see. Worthy of particular mention were the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the Foo Fighters, The Hives, Feeder and Ash, whose sets were all really good.
Ash were my favourites though. I managed to get pretty well right up to the front so my view was really good. I love Ash, so being so close was definitely a thing I liked. As usual, they played an amazing set, all the old favourites. They also played a couple of their new songs. If the new songs were anything like the songs that will be on their forthcoming album, we are in for a treat indeed.
