Sŵn 2008: A brief band review.

This festival is a better representative of the wristband festival than say The Great Escape as there are a lot of good venues very close to one another and with the exception of one or two you seem to always be able to get in at the last minute. This makes gig hopping much easier but nevertheless I still managed to miss some noteworthy performers such as Eugene McGuinness and Golden Silvers. Here are links and some pics (shot by yours truly) of some bands that provided my weekend highlights:
