So, how was Homelands? Forget the reviews, the tabloid tales, and the PR spin, here's the definitive lowdown from the people that mattered - the punters who paid over fifty quid for the pleasure.
Beck and Roots Manuva were just two of the many highlights of Saturday's Homelands one-dayer, as the first major festival of the summer escaped rain free!
Babyshambles, The Audio Bullies and Buck 65 have been added to the lineup for Homelands, all three playing on live arena alongside The Streets, Roots Manuva and Mylo.
Radio 4, Kano and The Mitchell Brothers have all been confirmed to play at next month's We Love...Homelands festival, further proof of the event's diversifying music policy.
Beck's only UK festival appearance of the year will be at the Homelands dance festival in Winchester. He's up there in the live arena alongside The Streets, The Bravery and Roots Manuva.
Retro electro-pop is coming to this year's We Love...Homeland, with the announcement that both The Bravery and The Human League will be performing at the dance festival.
The Streets and Roots Manuva have been announced as the Live Arena headliners and dozens of DJs, including John Digweed and Richie Hawtin, have been confirmed for the other stages.
