Captain Ants went along and snapped these images
of Grinny Grandad performing on the Cooperative
Stage. It was early afternoon....
He also got a couple of the Acoustic Stage whilst
Holly Taymar was playing then his camera batteries
died....sorry! You'll just have to read the list to
your left for the other acts you may have missed....
Wandering around the Festival site Captain ANts
came across a Sun Powered Cinema that screened
"Cogg" the animation about cavemen....A dance
tent that pounded, some artists painting onto a
large communal canvas...some ethical stalls, Food
Stalls that served everything as long as it was
vegitarian and curry flavoured.....lots and lots of
activities for children, they were very well catered
for with inflatable slides and bouncy castles, sticky
tape sculptures and lots of icecream vans.....
`York's Rowntree Park is great as a festival backdrop
and for the most part the stages and their various
sounds and systems didn't collide with each
other.......so the technical issues are all ironed out
nicely.....but please please please! next year can
we have some of the ethical meals that aren't curry
flavoured? there's a world of food out there and we
know full well there are people in York who do
some great tasting veggie foods that are simple to
make and filling with plenty of subtle flavours.
Perhaps something as simple as roasted
vegitables....sweet potatos, Salads etc..... anyways
it's a great family day out to support a great cause
and whatever the weather...See you at York Green
Festival 2009 folks!
