Putting Dogstock to bed

Putting things to bed

Dogstock 2012 made my brain hurt. There you go I’ve said it.

Loads of money spent. Loads of money had to be recouped. Loads of bands to play. Loads of bands to be organised. Tickets. Wristbands. Heart. Attack. Nervous. Breakdown. 

 Ahh well. 

It really was worth it even though I only feel like I’ve just recovered.

I’ve been asked by a few people to pick a highlight. I really can’t. Things do stick out in my mind. Looking down on a packed yard on the last night was pretty stunning. The way EVERYONE rallied round on the second day to avert disaster. And obviously ALL the performances. I really mean all. It’s going to be a struggle topping it next year but we’re already on it (and we are taking requests). 

I did a ton of filming, Chris recorded all the bands and a million photos have been taken. Below is a small selection  but do venture forth internet wise and find what you can find. If you have footage or photos do not hesitate to send it our way. The more the better.
