Either the British paying punters(i.e. not in, or with, a band) were very quiet or there were only the four of us in the crowd. Hopefully there'll be more next year.

The only thing I would suggest is offering some tapas. Going from 7.30 to past midnight without any grub proved difficult.

I've put a few photos on facebook at:

Good suggestion. Next year we´ll try to give some free food for everyone at venue.
Thanks for photos... they are fantastic !!!

I'm at work so can't fully watch it yet but I've just skipped through it on silent. It looks beautiful, crystal clear and so professionally made! Everyone looks like they're on Top of the Pops with those bright pink lights from the Sala Clamores sign plus your adorable Madrid Popfest banner in the back. I've spotted Horowitz, The Orchids, Autocratas, Zipper and Allo Darlin' in this.
There's more than one use for every part

...which are quite embarrased while watching that but enthusiastic-nostalgic at the same time!

People, I remind you, you've got FOUR DAYS left to vote! Who do you want to see playing at Madrid Popfest 2012? Come on, don't be shy! Dreaming is free...
