Just watched Cal Wilson and she was great, I haven't seen her in person before but after some festival food and drinks it was a great show. Roll on the rest of the events, much more to go to yet.

Highly recommend this festival, there is something for everyone. Festival Park has a great atmosphere with free entertinament and food stalls selling a good selection of food, it does get a bit busy before a performance but otherwise it has a great relaxed chilled vibe.
