    I think the whole day was awesome tbh. All the support acts were amazing (yes, even The Vaccines!). I watched most of the support acts from the mid section of the crowd and from there I experienced a few of the sound problems people have mentioned, which was a bit of a shame. For Arcade Fire I got pretty much to the barrier and from there it was perfect. Excellent sound and the crowd was very lively indeed! Possibly the best performance I've seen from Arcade Fire, they all seemed pretty happy on stage and that mentality really boosts a performance. I saw them in Birmingham last year and Win seemed pretty pissed off cos of the dead crowd, and it showed quite a lot at times. Hyde Park was the opposite: Amazing!

    Arcade Fire were amazing and the other supporting acts were good except for Mumford & Sons, which I found tired and boring. Didn't have problems with drunk and fighting people and to me the sound was ok.

    I didn't realise so many people had the same experience of drunken idiots at the gig as me. Arcade Fire were great, but up until they started, the gig wasn't so great. I think it was during Mumford & Sons where I witnessed about 3 different fights, with boys about 17 swearing and cursing people 30+ their age (and a 17 year old boy calling a 40 year old woman a c___ and telling her to: "fuck off to the back with the old people" because she wouldn't move out the way so he could get out his iphone and film mumford & sons.) I just don't understand what it is about Mumford & Sons that made people want to fight. They're hardly heavy, are they?

    I was at the very first row just in front of a speaker and I was surprised at how low the sound was even there, not that it bothered me really, at least my ears were perfectly fine, but I can imagine how bad it was for people standing further. I agree with crowd looking bored too, that was the most disappointing bit, I somehow felt like I was the only person enjoying myself, otherwise Arcade Fire were incredible. Unfortunately, drunk/loud people were to be expected. I spent the day gritting my teeth but I thought it would be even worse.

    A man near me collapsed from a drug overdose and had to be carried out of the park just as Arcade Fire started

    Dreadful sound until it went dark. A little disappointing all in all it's fair to say. Crowd seemed bored.

    About the drunken crowds: we saw a girl already throwing up in between Owen Pallett and The Vaccines. She had a tough night coming up I think. :P

    That was awesome. Arcade Fire was amazing, Mumford & Sons was a good party and Beirut showed lots of talent and quality. Vaccines was an ok act (nice to warm up) and I hardly saw anything of Owen Pallett so can't say anything about that show.

    @suing_susan I must have stood pretty much next to you, the four drunken Australian girls nearly ruined my experience (and my girlfriend nearly started a fight haha). It was fucking ridiculous. Asking me to chill out and enjoy the music, when I couldn't fucking hear because of them screaming constantly. Probably the worst thing about big gigs like this. But overall, Owen Pallett, Beirut, Mumford and Arcade Fire were incredible.

    Gigs like this always attract vast crowds of drunken idiots from places like Luton where they come and spend mummy and daddy's money on booze getting wasted and 'enjoying' the music. Luckily, some of us only had a fifteen minute walk home... ;)

    Arcade Fire were incredible, my first time seeing them and was blown away! Managed to get closer and closer after each song finished and ended up 4 rows from the front. The merge from the end of Month of May to the beginning of Rebellion blew my mind, it was so awesome. Great setlist, got everything I wanted to hear and Win looked right at me as he waved at the end of the show! :D Loved The Vaccines, Beirut were great, HATED Mumford's crowd, never understood anyone who gets totally drunk to the point they can't stand up properly and with the prices at the bar surely an expensive waste of time? At least all the drunken fools cleared out after they finished so I could enjoy Arcade Fire. I had no issues with sound but that was probably because I was really close to the front.

    Wow, sounds like a lot of unsettling experiences for some fans. I was about five feet from the barrier to the right hand side in front of the massive video screen, it was amazing. Great audience around me and everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. However, I will say after seeing Arcade Fire five times live, that they are better in smaller venues when surrounded by their most ardent fans. As their popularity increases and wank-rags like NME cream their pants over them, they bring in large crowds of drunken hooligans who don't appreciate the artistry of Arcade Fire's music and just see it as an excuse to start fights. This is not why I got into their music, or why I pay a lot of money to go and see them. I can only hope they do a few smaller gigs, like their amazing three-day stint at Alexandra Palace in 2007 or Brixton Academy the same year. Problem is, they can make twenty times as much money by playing one gig in Hyde Park than somewhere like the aforementioned.

    @marshmallowsses it was incredibly quiet, could hear people talking over the band. I could forgive the awful sound system if they had turned Arcade Fire's mics up a bit but they didn't do that until the last few songs

    Arcade Fire were however incredible as expected (Speaking in Tongues was especially a treat) and made up for all of this. Apologies for my rant but as everyone seems to have had similar experiences during Mumford and Sons I felt I'd add my voice to the debate.

    They also started a fight with the people behind them after attempting to go up on each other's shoulders and incapable of even standing individually ended up falling on to the crowd around us. This was followed up by some dickhead hipster pushing from the side of the stage, saying that he worked for XFM and needed to be at the front to review it in order to make use of his free ticket. I paid over 100 pounds for these tickets for my girlfriend's birthday, surely my rights are greater than his? After the Australians and attempting to push past us for the seven billionth time I snapped and shoved him back. His snivelling response was "Oi you're going to get kicked out mate". He did eventually get around us (which given we were on the barrier was pretty frustrating) but the karma was that the Australians proceeded to elbow and fall into him for the remainder of the gig. He similarly knew very few words and didn't get into the gig beyond a few token head nods and claps. Wanker.

    I felt Beirut made himself alot of new fans last night, the change in volume of applause between start and finish was very encouraging, such a wonderful, talented band. Mumford and Sons were very impressive even if their material had lowered my expectations of them. However, easily one of the worst gig experiences of my life during them. A bloke I'd been speaking to was trying to get back to his daughter who he'd asked me to keep an eye on. He was followed by four wasted Australian girls who insisted that Arcade Fire were shit and that Mumford and Sons were their headliners, passed out and consistently knocked over my girlfriend and myself pissing everyone off in the nearby area, before then proceeding to slur along and mess up the words to about four of Mumford's songs. The singles. Of course.

    * @onona, I agree entirely with that. It was sometimes pretty damn hard to hear the bands over the drunkards. When Mumford and Sons tried to play Timshel (girlfriend's favourite) we couldn't hear it at all over the pricks around us slurring about something or other at the top of their voice. Though it was hard to stay mad at the guys near us because one of them looked a lot like Alan Davies.
