It is now five days since Electric Picnic finished and festival goers have put the wellies (largely unnecessary, as it turned out) and the sleeping bag back into storage for another year.

Those who didn't Picnic are pretty much over their FOMO, if they had it, by now, and those who Picnicked with gusto have recovered from their UFIs (Unidentified Festival Injuries).

The relief that the whole thing is over for another year is huge, because the constant Facebook posts from people documenting their experience was tedious in the extreme.
