Saturday's bill was characteristic of the quality, eclectic (and largely locally-sourced) music on offer - it included Davey Henderson's art-punk revolutionaries The Sexual Objects, harmonic Celtic indie-rockers Washington Irving, sun-pop grrrl-group Teen Canteen, and electro-dreamboats Machines in Heaven, whose recent single, Mumbo Jingo, was a euphoric tech-pop highlight.
Fife alt-pop minstrel Panda Su proved as much of a hit with the kids as their parents - her sublime recent electro-folk single, Maps, complemented older favourites like Alphabet Song and Eric is Dead - while John Knox Sex Club were show-stopping, in no small part thanks to frontman Sean Cumming's dramatic presence.
There were also notable appearances from post-punk/indie legends The Monochrome Set and ingenious cult pop bard Robyn Hitchcock, while the festival's Inspire tent was rendered incandescent by a strokes-evoking local band called The Age - their strobe-lit stage groaned under the weight of a youthful 20-strong stage invasion of dancers and ad-hoc backing vocalists.
Before the dark skies rightfully gathered for psychedelic kraut-druids Clinic, there was an enthralling, twilit performance from enduring indie-pop favourites The Pastels. It included their glorious recent single, Check My Heart - an anthem for a "feel-good summer", said frontman Stephen Pastel. Doune the Rabbit Hole felt like that.
