I can only add to the above comments to praise and thank Kieran and his band of merry men and women for putting on yet another awesome Firefest event with fantastic bands and an incredible day out.

All bands were great (didn't see Valentine alas, but sounds like they were great too) but I was particularly excited by the atmosphere, crowd response, playing performances and vocal brilliance of FM's set. Clearly the crowd was full of FM enthusiasts and I was particularly chuffed that they played a good selection of tracks from their best ever album 'Aphrodisiac'. I expected them to obviously played lots from 'Indiscreet' and they were all great but didn't expect 5 from the brilliant 'Aphrodisiac' album! Playing 'Breathe Fire' and 'All or Nothing' (my 2 favourite ever FM tracks) just about capped off an incredible day.

What a joy too to see the last ever shows by 2 awesome bands like Tyketto and Harem Scarem. Such a huge loss to the scene for these bands to be done and gone, but they were both great and Tyketto made some great song selections, playing personal favourites of mine like 'Catch My Fall', 'Rescue Me' and 'Burning Down Inside' that weren't their singles.

Harem Scarem are the greatest band in the world and I'm gutted their finished. Their set list was strange and short by a couple of songs by my reckoning for a last show, but still loved it and was particularly pleased they chose 'Caught Up In Your Wolrd' off the latest album (what an incredible track from an incredible album). Really hope n pray that 'Human Nature' isn't their last album as folks seem to be thinking now! If it is though it was certainly a fantastic album to finish off a fantastic career. As for their 'modern' rock leanings, bring them on I say and if you haven't got Pete Lesperance/Fair Ground album then buy it now!!! It's an awesome album of modern melodic rock with great choruses and vocals from Pete.

Here's for Firefest V and hopefully many more beyond that too (again I hope the messages I'm reading re that possibly being the last FF are mistaken after this sellout weekend!).

Steve.
