Thankyou verrrrry much to everyone who came and played at Golden Plains No.5. She was blessed by top class weather (thankyou, Mother Nature, I felt like we’d earned that one); just a couple of showers Sunday but Saturday and Saturnight were clear and still and balmy. Green grass, blue skies.

Who got The Boot? It’s a little unclear, seemingly a few artists did. The Besnard Lakes, Belle & Sebastian, Imelda May, Justin Townes Earle, Jamie Lidell and Pulled Apart By Horses (with long-distance crowd surf finale) all drew footwear aloft. But there were many many other musical highlights as well. Architecture in Helsinki crowned it. Good to see The Boot get a mention in the UK’s big media too. Now internationally-renowned, of course.

You can view some photos here and here thanks to Mia Mala McDonald. Some ‘tubes to watch here, here, here, here and here thanks to Rob McCafferty and crew.

Someone else shot this little gem from the crowd. Lost property is here.

If you went we’d really like to hear your thoughts on how it was for you, please.
