Four hours before the Police bade their final farewell to Britain, a karaoke contestant called Steve was belting out Message in a Bottle in a tent a few hundred feet from Hard Rock Calling’s main stage. A middle-aged man in a Stranglers T-shirt, Steve had a gritty voice for a Sting stand-in, but still he managed what none of the afternoon’s paid acts could – he got a crowd going crazy.
…it was our first festival and everyone from the staff on the entrance gate to Chris Evans were great. My son obviously thought being in a band with you guys was the best thing about the day.
Thank you for all your help this weekend – everyone had a brilliant time!
