Leeroy played a DJ set in Strongbow Tent

Review by neko:
After last night at Lowlands festival (after the Prodigy show Liz took me to the drum n bass tents until 3am) I’m a little knackered, but travel is still easy enough and I catch a 30 euro flight from Amsterdam directly to Birmingham where I meet up once more with Katie and Yuki.
We have a nice pub lunch and relax a little (I need it!) and then head to the festival later in the evening. We catch a train to Wolverhampton and from tehre share a cab with two mad Australians to the festival. They tell us their story. Apparently they travelled from London to Southend to meet their friends who had bought them tickets to V. Which they did. But not the Chelmsford V, but instead the Stafford one. So they spent all day travelling from Essex up to Stafford here. At the time they claim it’s the worst thing that can happen to you at a festival, having tickets for the wrong one. This probably isn’t true. What happened to my mate Nina the next day is worse. But more about that later …
So we chat a bit about Prodigy. “I hope they play some of their old stuff as well”, says one of them. “yeah, they probably play Out of Space”, I show off my knowledge. “hmm, I don’t know that one, but what about ‘breathe the pressure?”. ah.
The line up of V festival on the Prodigy day unfortunately isn’t all too exciting (the other day would have looked pretty cool though – Bravery, Kaiser Chiefs, Chemical Brothers …). But finally tonight I can have my vodka tonic. Lovely. no more driving, ha!
The only bands I get to see are like 2 tracks of the Hives (not bad) and then of course Prodigy. It’s crowded as hell, but we just go to the front. Really mad show, but I really enjoy it, kind of need this now.

Review by Jase:
Me and eddy are just walking around drinking loads off cider as theres not a great lot off kool bands to see tday at v -festival,we seen dizy rascal for about 5 minutes but got board off that to many chavs in there trying to look hard lol..Before we know it the hives are on wished i could of watched these propley,but there was no chance off that the amount of cider i had during the day had taken control! We both pushed our way to the front we no difficulty,INTRO i loved this really got the hairs on the back off my neck standing on end preferd it to the usual waaaake up….waaake up.THEIR LAW always has been and always will be a crowd pleaser it dont seem it was made 11 years ago wicked.
