At the weekend we jumped on a pretty choppy ferry to head over to the Isle Of Wight to meet our mates with This Feeling and some of the incredible young talent that came with them.

We had the great opportunity to team up with This Feeling and Pirate Studios to help bring together and show off some special up and coming bands / artist to the public.

Let’s give you a little taste of some of our highlights; Mo Salah rocked up behind stage (in cardboard form), Wet Wet Wet filled a surprisingly wild but emotional tent, we got to catch Liverpool favourites Red Rum Club headline and completely take over our tent, we got a bit wet (it’s not a festival without it) then the sun came out, Courteeners gave us a performance we’ll never forget, the sun came out again, James taught us a thing or two about dancing, Richard Ashcroft did what he does best, and, well there’s loads! It was an absolute belter of a weekend.

Our weekend kicked off at 6:15 at the This Feeling, Pirate Studios and scotts tent, with The Orders and they were something else! The filled out crowd thrived off their energy on stage, which gave us all a taste of what was to come this weekend. This Feelings’ tent was filled with incredible talent, from The Orders, Kicklips, Red Rum Club, Velvet Hands, King Kartel, Rats, Saint Agnes, Dylan James Thomas, Only The Poets – the list could go on! It was the place to be and people knew that. There wasn’t a performance that went on without a filled out crowd – the atmosphere was insane.

The main stage kicked off with a belter of a lineup! Wild Front were first up, followed by our favourite Australian rock band; DMA’s, Gerry Cinnamon, James, Courteeners and Noel Gallagher. Friday went off! Indie-rock not totally your thing? The Big Top had all the classic dance anthems to lose it to, from Sigala, Jax Jones and Haçienda Classical – it was mental.

The rest of the weekend saw a the likes of a few legends; Fatyboy Slim, Richard Ashcroft, Biffy Clyro, Madness, Tom Walker, Idles, Keane and so many more! Lets take a look back on a truly epic weekend through pictures, because I could be here all day!

Keep your eyes peeled for some crackin’ interviews coming your way!
