Wow! What a weekend!
Check out our coverage (including videos and photos) on www.CaernarfonOnline.co.uk/bigweekend
Caernarfon and Bangor saw one of the best ever festivals held in the area for many a year. This takes nothing away from Bryn Terfel's Festival. The two were totally different. One offered the very best from the pop world with World renown acts performing for free on our doorsteps, whilst the other offers a variety of different acts scanning from Pop, culture, nostalgia and for the first time this year - Comedy!
My wife and I had a tremendous time mingling with the stars and we were even able to conduct interviews with some of the headlining acts. We has arranged for pupils of Ysgol Sir Huw Owen to provide us with questions which we pt to the stars. All in all a fantastic day and one many of us will remember for many years to come.
Many have said what a good job Radio 1 did in ensuring the top stars gave their services for the weekend. Many have congratulated Gwynedd Council for making sure it went ahead with no obstacles and many have already said how good Caernarfon Online's coverage was, providing not only fantastic photos but more video that anyone imagined.
But one group who has remained quiet and dignified in all this is our good friends at the Faenol. Myfyr, Keith, Simon and the gang made it all happen at the Faenol. To them we are extremely grateful and now they have proven, the Faenol is a world class venue for all the major starts to perform. Forget Wakestock, forget Knebworth, forget Woodstock. THE FAENOL is the place to be.
