Another festival disaster: Zoo8 seems to have been something of a nightmare with half the bands not showing, and the venue (a zoo, of course) having to dig deep into their own pockets to see that Ash would play when the promoters didn't look able to guarantee the payment.
Which means, in effect, that the penguins and tigers of Port Lympne were subsidising a music festival.
Even with Ash secured, no-shows and overflows left fans less-than-thrilled:
Julia Bray, whose daughter was at the event, wrote on a Facebook page: "Hours of queuing, campsite dreadful, bands didn't show up or moved stages, staff very rude or unhelpful."
Another fan, Rachel Collings, wrote: "Badly organised, badly informed. Worst fest ever!"
Hey - Woodstock II would take issue with that.
Funnily enough, though - presumably following the Eavis playbook - those charged with overseeing the event report a wonderful time had by all:
"This being the first Zoo8 at the park, there were bound to be some problems but they were all resolved quickly and efficiently, mainly by our own staff who stepped in to sort things out.
"According to St John Ambulance, Health and Safety, the licensing office, environmental health and the police, they were all happy."
Then again, none of those fine organisations would be expected to factor in the non-appearance of Dizzee Rascal, Athlete, The Rascals or Wiley.
