The second day at the beautiful Fernhills Royal Palace dawned on a venue full of people eager to get on with the festival atmosphere and lounging on the grass at the Calaloo, watching the initial bands setup while grabbing a quick breakfast.

Since it was a Saturday, more people from near and far were expected to flock to the venue, a steely glint in their eye – the determination to have fun over the weekend apparent. Lucid Dreams started their set with an excellent rendition of Iron Maiden’s ‘Wrathchild’.
