Opening the festivities on the main stage for the first day are the much talked about rising stars of UK Rock, Inglorious, it was great to finally see them live. Fronted by the wonderful voice of Nathan James this band has over the last year released an excellent album, toured pretty much endlessly and managed to create a hell of a buzz on the scene. they step out onto the stage to a raucous reception and an extremely healthy sized crowd considering there are still large queues outside entrance. It’s already a very hot day but that is certainly a welcome change to cold, wet and muddy, and the guys a playing a storming 45 minute set, maid up mainly of songs from that self titled debut album, but also throwing in a cover of “I Surrender” which sounded great, this man can sing pretty much anything and when put together with a group of like minded musicians it all fits so well, the guys look like they are having fun on that big stage and don’t look out of place at all.
