Some images from a few gigs that I saw small amounts of, but not enough for a full album for each one. Forq were a headline international act, but one that I had great reservations about based on the program notes and a little research of my own. I only lasted one number before I ran screaming for the door. This was one of several acts intended to broaden the appeal of the festival by attracting a younger audience. The Sunday night set in the theatre was a fair way short of full and in my limited time in the venue it wasn't clear to me that this act had met that objective.
