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