The Daily Ticket, as in our Electric Picnic supplement produced in a 16′ x 8′ shed, is here.

My own highlights from yesterday?

The Lucent Dossier circus/cabaret/leaping and jumping on a replica pirate ship with water splashing everywhere. So good we think we’ll go to see them again.

New Young Pony Club. How the hell did that happen? Awesome full-strength electro-pop with humungous hooks

The World Music Stage. The perfect place to go to sooth the soul when things were getting a little mad. Trad boyos At First Light were fantastic

A full tent for Jape. Go on the Richie. Couldn’t get close enough to see if he still has the comedy ‘tache.

Goldfrapp. I was queueing for a pie and they just looked and sounded the business. Yeah, no special preferences for Ticket writers in the pie stakes.

Sigur Ros. Their last few albums were pants but this was truly wonderful. I also really liked Jonsi’s frock coat, but that may be my latent metrosexuality coming out.

Ugly Megan playing in the Diarmuid Gavin-designed pod in the Body & Soul area.

Seeing The Kills heading to bed long before Team Ticket left the hotel bar last night. Wusses.

Right, enough typing, got to run. Somadrone are playing a couple of fields away in a few minutes.
