Right now you could say that we're slightly the worse for wear! However, not a hangover between us and, following showers on arrival home, we don't even smell to bad! We got through Solfest 2008 :oD
Solfest is a small music festival on the west coast of Cumbria. This year there were around 7000 people and a huge diversity of acts from folk, through indie, reggae and dance. I think that a pretty fabulous time was had by all.
Here are some photos. Highlights for me were chilling out in the rather boho Wierdigan's cafe, which seems to be our spritual Solfest home, listening to our friends Wal, Paddy and James who together make up Weirdstring, and listening to Supergrass. Chris and I have been a fan of these guys for years and, although Chris has seen them several times, including in a pub before they were famous, I'd never watched them live. They put on a real quality performance and we were impressed that they had turned up in the morning to listen to the other acts and wander about the festival field.
On arriving home I also found that Fox had happily survived his time in kennels despite my feelings of guilt, and that Whisper had not eaten our friend Tash's house! Fox even still likes Whisper.
