As we shake the last of the mud from our boots and hang up our Cornish hats for another year, we thought we’d share some shots of the wettest Port Eliot in collective memory. First though, thanks to:

Andrew Weatherall, Boy Azooga, Britain, Bruno Vincent, Carey Davies, Carl Gosling, Caroline Hudson, Ceri Levy, Chris Difford, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Danny Barrett, Danny Mitchell, David Keenan, Emma Warren, Fiona Stafford, Flamingods, Fumaça Preta, Girl Ray, H.Hawkline, Harriet Hand, Helene Bradley, Hollie McNish, Hooton Tennis Club, James Brookes, Jeb Loy Nichols, Joe Minihane, John Andrews, Karl Hyde, Lou Tonkin, Louis Eliot & The Embers, Martha Sprackland, Martin Nesbitt, Mathew Clayton, Melissa Harrison, Miranda Sawyer, Mona Arshi, Neil Thomson, Nick Hand, Pete Fowler, Raf Rundell, Red River Dialect, Richard Hector-Jones, Roy Wilkinson, Rozi Plain, Sara Baume, Sean Johnston, Simon Fisher Turner, Sophie Green, Sophie McKeand, Stephen “Spoonful” Parker, Ted Kessler, The Comet Is Coming, The Orielles, The Papas & The Mamas, This Is The Kit, Wendy Barrett, Will Burns, and Zaffar Kunial.

Lamentably, we are without his photo, but an honorary mention goes out to The Memory Band’s Stephen Cracknell, who woke us up with his ‘Voices Of The Field’ on both Saturday and Sunday. This project is still a work in progress, but if you’re quick, you can hear a taster of it here.

And without further ado, here follow photos from the afore-thanked Neil Thomson:
