The 2014 Bluesfest is done and dusted and it will be one to be remembered affectionately.

Not an event that will be known for its Dylan or Plant, the festival didn’t boast an achingly awesome name, but what it did have was stages full of world-class talent all weekend, and it was sort of nice not to have that build to an (often disappointing) climax.

Even without the names, the calibre of the music was simply the best and the festival was really good the whole way through.

In my opinion that’s probably how it should be.

I had fun, and for the first time ever managed the fiv days without opting out on hump day – it was a blast and I can’t wait for next year.
