Bought my ticket, booked my campsite berth ..and then got ill in the week prior to the show and didn't go. Luckily friend and colleague Nico Charpentier got there as usual and as he doesn't post his pics anywhere, he has graciously allowed me to use them here. I've cropped them and posted them as low-res pics but if you want to use any just drop us a mail. Strap in and enjoy..cos these are as good as any you'll see anywhere on the net !
