It's a beautiful day today in Brighton, clear sky and bright sunshine - a direct contrast to the crappy summer we had here.
The festival season was marred by dodgy weather throughout and I clung on to the hope that by Bestival in September we would have some sunshine and lovely weather - dry at least...
How wrong could I have been. The scenes above tell the story, muddy as hell.
However I was not going to miss out on the rizla arena's fine programming and took the ferry to the IOW on saturday and got stuck in.
We were not disappointed - Greg Wilson was on top form, as were Andy Blake of Dissident records and Horsemeat Disco.
So although it was raining occasionally, and very muddy, we still had a ball.
One or two of the top tunes included:
Psycho Killer (Greg Wilson edit) - Talking Heads
Walking on Confusion (Greg Wilson edit)
Here's a glimpse of Greg Wilson at work in the Rizla Invisible Players arena. The mud and the rain are easily overcome by the the people, the music and the atmosphere.
