1. DJ legend Sasha lighting up the Memorial Stage
In 2018, prog house icon Sasha took to the Memorial Stage on Friday. Bringing chill vibes reminiscent of relaxed Ibiza soundscapes, his set perfectly complemented the early summer evening. As the festival's first proper event, it couldn’t have asked for a better start. Photo: Submit
2. Bubble lady
Festivals are more than just the tunes. You need a bit of something else here and there to set the tone and get everyone buzzing. And bubble lady did exactly that. Wandering the grounds for the whole weekend, bubble lady delighted and mesmerised kids and big kids alike by filling the air with huge bubbles. Photo: Submit

4. The crowd singalong to Embrace’s All You Good Good People
The proper arms in the air, sing until you lose your voice tune had everyone going wild. The laidback indie tune is the perfect festival anthem, and it showed when the band took to the stage in 2018. A real cathartic experience for every single person in the crowd. Photo: Submit
