Hi Martin

Thanks for your post, and the photos too. It's good to see that festivals haven't changed to much in my few years of absence.

I really identify with what you say about how things have changed since 89. Back then I had a tape player and loads of dubbed tapes where I couldn't remember the names of the songs, nor cared. These days I get upset if I don't know the release date of a track down to the exact year. Not to mention being fully tagged with Genre, Artist and Album so I can search for it in my iPhone.

I also have a enviable collection of videos from the early camera phones, one of my favorites is the Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters playing My Hero. Even back in 2006 my phone could take 50m of video but back in 89 that would've required a VHS far too big to smuggle in to a concert.

Thanks for the chance to reminisce.

Keep up to date on my new blog
