I think it may take me a bit of time to warm to this one. No doubts, it’s another massive lineup, but I think I built myself up with hopes Robyn and Röyksopp would be there. Then again, the rumours of Kanye and James Blake happily did come true, and I’ll probably end up selling everything apart from my viola and a change of clothes just to head along and see them.
