Despite some pretty dreadful weather for the first two days of the festival, the climate was buzzing with excitement, love and anticipation for the acts, the world class wakeboarding competition, and the thrill of the nights to come. Headlining the first night, and setting a benchmark for acts to follow, was Moby, playing a mesmeric set with incredible performances of songs such as ‘Trouble so hard’, ‘Extreme Ways’ and ‘Lift me up’ mixed with a few of his new songs from the album, Wait for me. The stand out song of Moby’s new album was a performance of ‘Shot in the back of the head'. Moby really knew how to work the crowd and had every person hanging on his every beat, Kelli Scarr, Moby’s lead singer vocals were mind blowing.
Headlining the first night with Moby, was the chart topping Calvin Harries, whose perfumes was an excellent and amazing dance tunes, and an incredible show. Calvin Harris has catched the every other dancer and singing so that it’s a popular song such as “Acceptable in the Eigthies” ,’Girls stay for the weekend’, and the most popular song of the night “I am not alone”. Calvin Harris oozed confidence, glad and excitement that rippled through the crowd as soon as he played the first note on his synthesised keyboard.
