Loved it. Bar was great, the stage was too, and the comedians were quality. Never heard of Jim Jeffries before, but I'll be seeing him again definitely!

I missed the tunes :( the only bad thing about soni 2010 for me. There wasn't a monster type dj like last year. i know we had the DJs on the strongbow stage but one, it was 2 small. and two they didnt play any toons. they did themed night. I did not here holy diver once!

Move the late night bands to strongbow and jager, DJs and comady in the bohemia tent

They can't have late night bands on Jager I suspect because it's open air

Really? All the bands I saw in there sounded good. In fact I only had problems with Apollo.

Maybe I was just unlucky :S The acts I saw on there were Katatonia (sounded mushy and indistinct), Tim Minchin (couldn't tell what he was saying and piano clunky, loud and over-bass-ey) and Therapy? (power went twice and really low bass levels).

I suppose in fairness that's not many bands to judge the whole stage on, but I did hope it would be better - main stage was really good!

Yeah I thought the sound was pretty bad, especially for any talking I couldn't hear the stand-up's at all and I tried standing dead center and off to the side just didnt work. My other problem would be the stage, its so tiny it either needs to be set back a little or opened up a bit because only people straight ahead can see anything at all and obviously without screens it can be disappointing.

Missed the 'chill out' area from last year with the white picket fence and bean bags, could have easily fitted in where the Bloodstock truck was parked all weekend. But other than that it was great.

First time there, thought that it was really good.

In the stage when i was in there it was all great sound.

If my bohemia your including the market then there was a brilliant cheap "loud clothing" store and a few others and i thought they were good.

I thought it was too small a venue for some of the bands playing - there were plenty of people who wanted to see Therapy? and Terrorvision who couldn't get in. Given that they were the last bands playing on their respective days (excepting a couple at small stages), a lot of people wanted to see them and they would have had a lot more spectators if there'd been a room.

Also, the stage could have done with being higher. I'm not particularly short, but even quite close to the stage it was impossible to see much (tall people: go to the back!)

layout was a whole heap better than last year.

appeared a lot more spacious so even in the "crush"after rammstein and maiden with people wanting to leave, you didn't feel squashed. (if that makes sense).

the bar in bohemia was a fantastic idea. saves people having to go outside.

one thing i did thing was great was that the securtiy in bohemia were passing out cups of water. (i don't know if they did this at the mainstages or not). this was a brilliant idea due to the heat build-up in the tent.

Powercuts during Therapy? were annoying, they burst onto stage ripping into the song "Knives" sending me into ecstasy, and then the power fails :( It did make the gig all that little bit special when it was sorted after the third attempt.

80's Matchbox B-line Disaster were awesome there last night, nice and intimate, all the "big fans" were there, awesome.

Shame there weren't any other bands I wanted to see in Bohemia as it's a great venue!

Decent enough layout but the tent needs to be bigger and have additional means of ventilation where possible (open up extra sides/fans) as it got really rather uncomfortable/crowded during the comedy especially.

Didn't catch Therapy? or Renegades but I understand they were equally packed - obviously they can't play outdoors due to the restrictions but something needs to be sorted :)

on a side note, when i went in on the friday i think it was might have been saturday, they had a screen to the right of the stage which was showing the name of the artist and some flashy lighty stuff.

could we not have a screen above the stage or something with the actual band/performer/whatever being shown on it.

would have helped me and a heap of people around me when tim minchin was on.

Plenty of room, airflow was a lot better this year with more exit points.

Needs a screen outside, preferably where the bottle exchange was

Loved Bohemia - seemed to be around it quite a lot, except on Saturday wanted to see several bands - but unfortunately got a bad migraine and could not go into it.

Too small.
Too many people have missed out on bands so often becuase it is full.
I felt the need to leave the headline bands early just to get in for Therapy and Terrorvision.

Other than that, loved the bar.

Needs to be bigger.
Saw Sylosis, Evile, Rise To Remain, Corey Taylor and Enforcer, sound was very good for all.

Definitely needs to be bigger, missed Tim Minchin because it was so packed. Managed to see Sean Hughes, but that was only because it wasn't as packed (still pretty full though).

The power cuts at the start of Therapy? were quite amusing, I swear they thought everyone was about to kick off after the 2nd one. Have to say I was well impressed at how restrained everyone was, but they could have done more to explain what had gone wrong.

Maybe make the Bohemia bar a bit bigger? It was fairly busy at times, or even just add another.

More cash machines? The two vans were usually pretty busy and queued out - doesn't help that it takes like 5 minutes to read your card. In saying that though, there was a third/fourth cash point up besides Red bull stage that was always a lot quieter because it was fairly hidden, maybe it needs to be sign posted a bit better to help lessen queues?

No other complaints though, everything else was tops :mrgreen:

Good point with the cash machines!

there were 2 in close proximity to each other by the Bohemia tent & bar, then the 2 dumped together by the dodgems.

Nothing in the main arena at all - surely a van with cash machines could be parked in between a couple of food stalls?

Couldn't have said it better myself. I really regret not being able to see Therapy, but couldn't be dealing with standing outside for all of it and not being able to see the band.
