Due to shift work, we didn’t go back for a few weeks, but when we did we found that they had changed the rules for the rollover. You now had to go on a semi regular basis, as it was based on a league format and was won every two months by the top performing team.

They are performing at Coachella in April this year along with The Stone Roses, Blur, Hot Chip & New Order to name but a small few. When the word awesome was invented, who'd have thunked it would be perfectly describing this Festival. Check out the full lineup here
