Things were about to go downhill, when we realised we had stupidly left all our tickets at home! Oh flip, but a quick call home, some texted images of the tickets and a trip to the ticket office, inside Bayside Motors office, quickly and efficiently solved this hiccup and our new replacement tickets were issued without charge! Good organisation and an efficient ticketing system. NB – the online booking system was also superb, giving me instant access to my tickets so I could print them (and leave them!) at home.
To name just a few, there were of course more great acts including Gabrielle Aplin and the Propellers!
A full 12 hours of superb music and entertainment. This year the venue had been cleverly split, to allow such a big line up, with two stages.
The crowds were enjoying act after act with great performances from all involved. My only complaint was not enough time between 10CC and Olly Murs! I did not get to hear Dreadlock Holiday but I suppose these acts were aimed at differing audiences!
Next up was the final artist of the festival, and Emile Sande did not disappoint. Being an old git I was not sure of her works, thinking Olly would have been my top act from what music I knew. But to be fair she was superb, and thanks to my daughter’s ability to drive my car stereo from her Ipod, and drive me mad in the process, I was surprised just how much of her superb material I knew! A fittingly superb final act.
Time for home! Again we had no issues leaving the event and we were back across the border to Spain, and driving away in our car within minutes.
We left having enjoyed a superb full day of entertainment with three very happy 15 years olds and two very entertained adults too! What a superb line up, and superb value for money. The organisers have quite an act to follow when planning the 3rd Gibraltar Music Festival for 2014. I hope they pull it off!
