Didn't go but I've heard mixed reviews about Coldplay's set. The Sun newspaper says they were great but a 6 songs into the set a lot of the crowd left to go and see Feeder headline the NME stage but other reviews I read say that they were a bit 'flat' and treated it like any, other gig.

I saw them at Glastonbury last year, headlining Saturday night. They were very good musically but I felt they lacked the big sound required for a large outdoor stage of 50,000 plus.
Chris was very self-deprecating, saying they were 'not worthy' (Moby was the same this year) and that their whole lives had been working towards the honour of headlining Glastonbury etc, which endeared them to the crowd somewhat.
Yeah, they were good but next time I would chose to see them in a more intimate venue.

I was at Chelmsford the whole weekend and had a fantastic time. It was my first festival so I am not experienced in these things but Coldplay were wicked!

I did not see anyone leaving at any time during there set. Although it was unfortunate that feeder were on at the same time.

I will never forget the feeling of the whole crowd singing along to 'in my place' 'clocks' and 'yellow' it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.

The Chillies were unbelievable too as were Ash, Skin, Morcheeba, Moloko.........arghhh too many to mention. :D

Scorch, what was Skin like ? I havn't seen her since Skunk Anansie. Is she doing similar stuff?
Please tell me she hasn't gone all R'n'B or Jazz!!!

She started with a few of J Lo's numbers and moved onto cover some Mysteeq tracks........................................NOT

Her stuff is pretty similar, she still has the most incredible voice and she really got the crowd going considering how early in the day it was, she even crowd surfed which went down a storm (not to mention how brave she was considering there was about 30000 people there at the time!!) she did some old Skunk songs and some of her new albumn. A couple of my mates are buying her albumn on the back of what they heard.
