INJURIES: Mean Fiddler probably swallowing hard at the reports in the Yorkshire Post today that their claims that none of the festival goers were injured - one lucky winner got to have emergency brain surgery after being smashed in the head by a bottle; Doubtless the MF will be quick to point out only 0.002% of music lovers had to have life-saving surgery. What we find incredible is that glass was allowed on the site at all - especially since the glass left behind even after the clean-up last year was one of the main concerns that led to calls for the event to be pulled in the first place.
In happier festival news, Cream managed to pull 40,000; the slimmed down Glasgow Gig on the Green went well; Mean Fiddler's Reading leg passed off with no death or destruction - all in all, it wasn't a bad weekend.
