Is it just me, or do all these festivals look and sound really gooseberry fool and flat? The wife put some of the "pyramid stage" (?which doesn't actually look like a pyramid?) performances on last night and whilst there was a massive crowd the actual sound and music didn't impress at all. Hard to explain but there didn't seem to be any atmosphere, the girl on stage was jumping up and down doing her thing and there was the hint of some music playing along with it, but it was just...flat.
Well this was a replay of the festival on iplayer, but yeah I guess they wouldn't have bothered to optimise the sound. Either way, not something I'll bother watching on TV again, better off just sticking a CD on.
live music broadcasts on TV over the years IMO have gone down hill how they mix them. Yes there are times the mix is perfect but its too often now performances are mixed badly and don't capture the sound and performance right at all
