So following on from Wednesday night's stay at the hostel in Dorking, we made the drive down to Dover and caught the ferry over to Calais. The main characteristic of the drive was shitty, shitty, shitty traffic. Belgium and southern Holland seemed to be one big traffic jam. Finally got to Steenwijk about 9 or 10pm, got the tents up and watched a couple of bands before crashing out knackered. Oh, and I drove down to Meppel to pick up the lost Essex hitch-hikers.
Friday came around, and first day of really watching bands. Met up with Logic Problem for the first time, as I knew I was driving them around the UK in a couple of weeks. Good guys and all that. Too many good bands to mention, but special mention must go out to the Ka-Ka-Karaoke band, for always being one of the most violent sets of the weekend.
edit: Somehow I managed to completely forget to upload the photos of Vaguely Racist Fest that me and Luke found in the next town!
