Because I haven't quite got used to not being in Glanusk Park, my top five moments in no particular order:
Lavinia howling like a banshee on Trembling Bells' closer, From the Womb to the Tomb
Johnny Pictish's Mountain Stage slides
Richard Dawson's accapella Ghost of a Tree
Getting a selfie with David Tattersall
Go on then, tell us yours . . .

Bellowing "You can bend over
Bellowing "You can bend over Casanova. No sweat I'm clean, nothing can stop me. Hey I'm the king of the world. You better to hear my song. You come on measure me, I'm twenty inches long.".....50ft Queenie by Polly.
The excitement of the gang of youngsters (and myself) I took to see Kate Tempest, cheering loudly at social/political references.
Richard Dawson's extraordinary rendition of Ghost of a Tree. (and "Can I have more vocals on Patrick Stewart's mic please?")
Dancing my legs off to Michael Kiwanuka.
Cowbois set on Settler's stage, lovely.

Cwmdu Cafe is just ace isn't
Cwmdu Cafe is just ace isn't it? I frequent that place more than any other food outlet although the Dragon Deli in the Babbling tongues field came a close second this year.

The open-mouthed stares of awe from the musicians at the side of the stage during Michael Chapman's set. "Where's he hiding the loop pedal?" Chapman's sound check was great also... "Can you hear that?" ..."Alreet" ... puts down guitar and walks off.
The sheer exuberance of Conor Oberst's performance. Just enjoying himself with his mates.
Elizabeth's no.1 above. The older songs made PJ's performance go from a 9/10 to a 10/10
Big Thief doing "Masterpiece" ... it was.
An exhausted Kate Tempest at the end of her set realising ... "Yeah they really liked that!"
I've had 5 and it's not a moment as such but... the unique atmosphere of the festival. Is there anything more uplifting than thousands of people gathering with the simple aim of enjoying themselves and sharing the experience?
Great to meet a few from forumland also. "I'm an avid reader and a great admirer of your work"
