The Goldfrapp Session

 

25/08/06 Starting the evening right, whether it's a picnic in the car park or a hog roast once you enter Eden. 

 

25/08/06  The theme was animals, you could come dressed as one or get your face painted, or possibly do both.  There were some excellent bunnies around and you could gobble up some of their droppings.

 

25/08/06 Bonnie droppings by the plate full, they did taste a bit like liquorice thank goodness.

 

25/08/06 Frozen green balls were also spoon feed to concert goers.

 

25/08/06 Todka shots were being served at 2 a shot.  Quinn's, a  fruit drink served on ice were on offers as free samples. Quinn's will also be there for the Snow Patrol Session on Sunday.

12/08/06 A solo guitarist helped to keep the crowd entertained whilst they waited to be served drinks.   Eden tokens were issued in an attempt to speed up the process but  you then had to queue for tokens and again for drinks during the short breaks between performances.

 Tip, buy your tokens when you arrive!
