Explosions in the Sky, Main Stage
Explosions in the Sky, Main Stage:
Perhaps the logic for having the US post-rock instrumentalists on the Main Stage on Saturday evening was their potential to deliver a perfect sundown soundtrack.
Unfortunately, the sun refused to co-operate, and while the music sparkled at times - alternating between quiet, loud and euphoric - the chill in the breeze helped dampen the atmosphere.
They don’t do chatter, and the stage was bare but for the fivepiece, but when a song as wonderful as Your Hand in Mine takes off, it’s hard not to be carried away.
On the day, the confines of a tent would have suited them best.
However, on the Main Stage, Explosions in the Sky weren’t quite the blast we’d hoped for.
