The show was a bit of a showcase for Modular acts like The Presets, Klaxons, Cut Copy, Ladyhawke, Bumblebeez and Van She. Invited international guests were geek Berliners The Whitest Boy Alive and disco queens Hercules and the Love Affair.
The day was a bit of a test for me photographically because i wasn’t using my typical Canon 5D set up. The night before the gig, the mirror fell off the shutter of the 5D and it was unusable. Cybele saved the day by lending me her Nikon D3. It’s the bees knees of low light photography, but i felt like a complete n00b with it’s back to front dials and unfamiliar set up. I managed though, and made good use of it’s high ISO capabilities.

The Klaxons were a little more subdued, but a lot more polished than last time they were here.
Attractive festival go-ers.
