Keane were absolutly FANTASTIC!!! I actually lost my voice screaming and shouting and singing along, you saved the best til last Radio 1 !! Amazed when it was revealed that Franz Ferdinand were the mystery guest - they rocked!! Loved meeting Laura from Scott Mills show too - she's fab!

Emma from Hamilton
THANK YOU SO MUCH RADIO 1!!!! Managed to get tickets for the Sunday and there isn't a word in the world which can describe how fantastic the day was. Atmostphere was magic, crowd (as per usual) was absolutely fantastic and the performances were amazing! The Ordinary Boys totally surprised me, they were fantastic and proved that their talent isn't only riding on the back of a reality tv show. I honestly had forgotten how good a band Feeder were too, and their set was excellent. Finished the day off with The Zutons, the atmostphere in the INMWT text was unbelievable. What a fantastic day, don't leave it so long to come back Radio 1! x

What a great weekend,highlights were The Kooks,The View,Yeah Yeah Yeah's and Editors. The fringe gigs were great aswell and i managed to catch a local Dundee band called Rising Signs who blew me away. Thanks for the great weekend and thanks to the people of Dundee for making it a great weekend.xx

wee Dawn & Tosh Fae Airdrie
Radio 1, thank u, thank u, thank u!!! we had the most amazing time (sun) couldnt have asked for anything better, the line up was fab and well organised & the atmosphere was electric, cant stop talking about it, the Kooks and The Zutons were my highlights but pink & feeder were fab 2, luv 2 u all :) xx

Ally Balfour (Montrose)
What a day Sunday was! so many highlights, so many amazing performances, esp We are Scientists, Feeder, Editors, Kooks and Keane and as for chucking in Franz Ferdinand, and all the djs in between, it was simply excellent! Cheers for such a great atompsphere and amazing gig! - Montrose next time - dare you!

Laura Bain - Dundee
Sunday was amazing! All the bands were great well I only got to see the ones in the main tent was just at the front and didn't dare move all day! Was great to see the Franz Ferdinand was the surprise act they were awesome and pink was great aswell god PINK IN DUNDEE!! Was soo jealo of my mate who got Feeder's drumstick!!

Wanted to say a big thankyou to Radio 1 for a fantastic day on Saturday. It could not have been scripted better. Both my teams (Hearts and Liverpool) won their respective Cup Finals and i got to see one of my favourite bands Muse. They blew me away with their wall of sound. Their new material sounded brilliant and interlaced with some classics made for an electric and thoroughly exhilirating performance. Only downside was that they only got to play 7 songs, and Stockholm Syndrome was not one of them!!! Still, you can't have it all!!! Cheers.

Les & Al, Dundee
We were there on Sunday. Kicked off with The Feeling - will be buying their album. I was a bit upset that Sugababes didn't play "Red Dress" - "Cos I'm cooler than a red dress!" Editors were the best, but I was desperate for the loo, so jumped about in the queue! Franz Ferdinand absolutely brilliant, what a surprise! The Zutons and Keane were fab! Didn't stop all day, beer, band, wee, band, food, beer, band! My complaints would be too many tall people (shorta*se) and the weather, brrr! But it got rid of my cold! Radio One you should bottle it - it cures all ills! Please bring more music to Dundee!!! Cheers

Baz Murphy (Dundee)
Radio 1 you are awesome. Thanks for bringing an amazing thing to Dundee. Thought all bands were great. Particularly thought the main stage serenading Moylsey to "You Fat B.....d" was hilarious, he took it well. Unfortunately missed most of Muse as I had to wait for about an hour in the toilet queue. Radio 1 you've definately won a lot more fans in Dundee. Thanks again

I was not there in Dundee, but I was there on-line and through digital radio. Thank you Radio 1 for all the great on-line stuff, streeming video, photo's, and listen again ...... and I will! Best bits for me were, Bloc Party, Razorlight, Primal Scream, and Gnarls Barkley on SAT. Feeder, Zutons, Franz Ferdinand, and Keane on SUN. But as for Muse and Snow Patrol, well, they just stole the show. You captured a fantastic atmosphere on the radio as well as on-line. Truly awesome, I was addicted all weekend. Outstanding radio 1.

Sarah (Dundee)
You probs won't post this but I ask you NEVER to do a ballot again for the sake of the poor deserving people who never got to go due to the awful organisation of the ballot. I'm pretty sure if you do a good ol' first come-first serve next time the proper music fans will get to go instead. DUNDONIANS DESERVE JUSTICE! Good luck with next year, hope it turns out better than this year's disaster! Byeeee x

Leanne & Ross
Had a ball all weekend. Arrived in Carnoustie on Friday for camping and partied all weekend (apologies to the other campers if we kept you up!!) Dirty Pretty Things were amazing and being right at the front for Primal Scream was the best thing I have ever experienced. When's the next one?!?!?!?!?!?!

Brian and Emma (Dundee)
Chris Moyle's Karaoke on Friday night was superb (thanks Vernon) and Saturday in Camperdown - Razorlight, The Streets and Snow Patrol all awesome. Thanks Radio 1

Callum McDonnell (liverpool!)
Even though i was GUTTED i didnt win tickets... i was made up with the amount of coverage on radio and online and on tv.. it felt as if i was actually part of it!! thanks! :)

Wee Leslee
Loved Listening to Razorlight (outside unfortunatley)on Sat, but the response as Johnny sang 'I really really wish I could be somewhere else instead' was sung with a laugh from us lot. Sunday inside was great, Editors, The Kooks, We are Scientists, The Zutons, The Ordinary Boys, Feeder and to top it off Franz Ferdinand and Keane, the crowd went mental. Hold on have I just mentioned half the line up, oh well must have enjoyed the whole thing then! Jamie working back stage (OOOHHH) had his 40th and won't forget it mingling with the stars. Thanks Radio 1 for coming to our side of the world, it was fabby. X

First of all - congratulations on putting a superb days fun together(on my birthday too-double celebration!!) Muse were simply awesome, tho' I can't see why they were so far down the bill and played so short a time, especially when you see the comments that it was the band everyone would want to see headlining. My only complaint is that why we had to listen to the dross that is Mylo, when the REAL bands could have had more time on stage. Everyone else was terrific(Boy Kill Boy are looking good to be the next big thing!!!). Thanks again!!!!

mad rocker with the funny hat
Paolo Nutini definently has a future in front of him, he was soooo lovely and indeed was Corinne Bailey Rae. Muse were my favourite act, bloomin brilliant Bliss live was amazing thanks radio1 !!

Regan (Fife)
Sunday was superb.The Kooks were out of this world and deserve to be sooooo famous. Was totally amazing to see Pink in Dundee!! The day went too fast x

Razorlight and Snow Patrol were amazing, it was a brilliant atmosphere and everyone was having a great time!!!!!! Bands on the New Music stage gave really good performances and I'm looking forward to hearing more!

Gav Taylor
Oh my God.....Radio 1 thank you, Saturday was such an amazing day! I can't believe I met Matt Bellamy and Dominic Howard from Muse!!! I love them so much, what made it even more special is they played Bliss which is the first song I ever heard from them and still remains my fave!! Snow Patrol were fantastic live as well...I can't belive they played Run and Spitting Games, that was totally a fantastic experience and the whole day was fantastic!!! Thanks again guys.

Michael (Dundee)

The Editors were magic, Pink was sooperb (actually everyone was great). Franz ferdinand omigod!!!

Franz were brilliant too - blew me away. I had a blast jumping about with my yellow hat in the front row. :D Great weekend Radio 1. I salute you.

Celia from Stirling

Steven Wallace
Just amazing, had the time of my life! All these big stars in Dundee!! Whoohoo, thnx Radio 1! One thing though, does this get released on DVD?

Thank you Radio One for a fab weekend. Travelled up for Saturday's gig from Whitehaven in Cumbria & it was well worth it. Razorlight were fantastic, followed closely by Primal Scream & Snow Patrol - EXCELLENT.

Absolutely superb, Snow Patrol were fantastic. Worth travelling so far at such short notice to have possibly the best weekend of my life!!! Thank you so much Radio One. Still recovering from my hangover though, lol!

Best weekend EVER. On saturday Muse&Razorlight were utterly awesome...on sunday The Kooks The Zutons yeah yeah yeahs and we are the scientists were amazing!!Thanks radio 1 :)

Colin A
Thought Pink and Keane were brilliant but nothing topped Tbe View, they were absolutely superb. Oh, and Edith was looking extremely hot!!

Kevin McCann, Cumbernauld
Muse were absolutely unreal. Their new stuff sounds so good. They're the best live band in the world. I was blown away by Razorlight and The Streets, considering I wasn't that big a fan before. I had to do half and half for Primal Scream and Snow Patrol and both were excellent. WHAT A DAY. I LOVE CHRIS MOYLES AND JO WHILEY...MARRY ME!

I'm gutted I didn't actually get to go, but MUSE totally rocked my socks off on the tv highlights!! Bring on the new album and tour!!

Absolutely brilliant!! i had a great time - really enjoyed snow patrol & Razolight. Enjoyed Paolo Nutini and loved Chris Moyles but it was Muse who stole the show - they just get better and better can't wait for the new album. Only thing i'd say is Muse should have been on for longer and headlining and the tickets should have been sent out special delivery - damn posties!! Apart from that loved it - come back soon.

Absolutely fantastic weekend. I felt fortunate to win tickets to both days and I haven't had as good a weekend in a long time. Especially sunday. Hot Chip! We Are Scientsts! Yeah Yeah Yeah! The Kook! Too many exclamation marks! Proper loving it.Yasss

Sunday was absolutely fantastic - Franz Ferdinand and The Editors were awesome, the Dance Party was out of this world! What a line up! Loved every drunken second! Come back again soon all of you!!

Claire Louise McDougall

david lennon
Once again Muse played everyone off the stage, for a 3 piece band they have some serious stage presence adn created an awsome atmosphere. Easily the best live british band around just now few could argue. Really looking forward ot thier new album out soon. Razorlight and bloc party were also gd. Snow patrol are a little bland In my opinon not that different.

Gillian Stewart
I just wanna say on behalf of me and my Mate(Jenny) What a FANTASTIC day we had today (Sun)Could not have asked for anything better... The weather was great, Sun was shinning and the acts were fantasic franz ferdinand what a shocker BRILLANT, and got to meet the wonderful Vernon Kay haha... Just wanna say overall FANTASTIC!!! and hopefully get you all back in a couple of Years as this has really placed Dundee on the Map and Camperdown is def the place to hold it CHEERS RADIO 1..

Richard+Claire (Dundee)
Great Karaoke Night on Friday, great banter today. Keane, Kooks, Franz, Pink and the Zutons all class today. Cheers Radio 1, also a big thanks to Dr Mark!

alan connor
A fantastic day.Feeder rocked the tent.Fab surprise with Franz Ferdinand,Keane took control.Sugababes sucked,they went through a routine,and seemed bored!Quite simply,a day to remember.Dundee is a place more bands should come to.

Feeder and Editors were amazing - whole crowd just went for it. Personal highlight has to be Moyles coming out to take a pic of Franz Ferdinand and chatting with us lowly crowd. The man is a legend!

Nia James
Sunday was amazing with a great set from 'We Are Scientists' then the mystery guests of Franz were amazing and the crowd was fantastic too. Keane did a great job of finishing up although i did get soaked from people throwing stuff about.

Congratulations Radio 1!!! I have been sat at home watching and listening to a fantastic weekend of music and entertainment! No ticket for me this time, and I am SO jealous of all of you who got tickets to Camperdown Park, just wish I could have been there........

Saf Akram
Saturday was excellent!!! Watched some of my favourite bands, rubbed shoulders with the stars, enjoyed every minute. Only wish I'd got tickets for Sunday too. Can't wait until next year. Great work all at Radio 1!!!

David, Cumbernauld
Really good atmosphere- even the toilet queues were a good laff. And nice wine is always a bonus. The bands were amazing and there was always something to do between bands. First class. Please come back to scotland, as we love it!

Trevor Clark
Saturday was excellent. Snow Patrol did not fail to dissapoint with a blindin set and they whipped the crowd into a frenzy, and it was great hearing new material from my favourite bands, "America" by Razorlight is a future anthem, cannot wait for their new album to get released, and "Ivy Parker" by Boy Kill Boy is a monster of a tune. Also, was not a massive fan of the Streets, but watched their set and thought it was fantastic, the atmosphere was amazing and when they played "Never Went To Church" and "Dry Your Eyes" at the end it was very special. What an absolutely amazing day, I will never forget it, Cheers Radio 1.

Pam & Greg (Dundee)
We managed to go to both days, and it was brilliant. I loved Bloc Party and Muse, Pam loved Sugababies & we both loved the best suprise ..... FRANZ FERDINAND!!!!

Rhian Vickers
OH MY GOD! What an awesome saturday! Snow patrol rocked & Razorlight were amazing. Didn't want it to end although my legs were struggling holding me up by the end (not sure if that was cos of all the jumping around or the cider....)Thanks Radio 1 xxx

Hels Bels
Muse: just so special and an out-of-this-world performance. I expected better of Snow Patrol, but Razorlight were on top form. But no-one could touch Muse for their sheer bravado and artistic genius ... they are exalted.

Paula (Dundee)
WOW!! Thanks radio 1 for putting on an amazing Sunday show!! It was great to see massive bands in Dundee for a change!! Franz Ferdinand turning up was the icing on the cake!! Had an excellent time - until the next big weekend!!!!

Saturday was amazing! Muse, Razorlight (Even though I got squashed at the front by everyone behind) & Snow Patrol really got the crowd going wild. Can't believe I passed Jo Whiley & Annie Mac within inches without even realising! lol

fiona williamson

Saturday was a great day! Best act for me was the first I saw...the Fratellis. Excellent show and though I didn't know a few of the songs they got me dancing and singing along...pure quality. Loved the set, loved them. Thanks Radio 1 for an awsome day!

Scott Kinnear
An 11th hour chance to go and to see Snow Patrol amongst many, it was absolutely brilliant, Thanks to Radio1 for everything, bringing the entertainment to dundee, for the organisation, and everyone who did their part, You fear getting crushed at these things but everything ran smoothly. please come again. thanks to everyone.

Nick James
Some great performances, from Razorlight and Bloc Party but Muse stole it for me with an awesome performance and some great now songs

Oh my Gawd!! Saturday was awesome!! best day ever the bands were fantastic and the atmosphere was outta this world!!

maria reynolds
Great weekend. The best thing EVER to happen in Dundee. Djs and acts were all briliant,snow patrol were superb! Thanks for a great day! Please come back soon. Just distribute the tickets more fairly instead of all us dundonians having to buy tickets. But was well worth it.X

Was there for Saturday. Asolutely brilliant. Main reason I was there, was for Snow Patrol, who blew the roof of the tent, but Razorlight, The Streets, Muse were superb. Thanks Radio 1 for bringing the event to Dundee!! Come back soon..

sam jackson
the best day of my life brought my love of music to another high. snow patrol amzing live so r muse and razorlight best day ever thanxs to radio 1

Lauren Shearer
Saturday was amazin!! The streets were definatley the best they really got the crowd going .. shame we had to go before snow patrol though! but they were excellent (watched the whole thing on tv when i got home!)

Muse and Razorlight were both awesome yesterday, with good crowd participation (you may have seen me jumping about like an idiot, I was the 6ft 6 guy). The only complaint I would have is that Muse didnt play for very long. All in all though, the whole of saturday was awesome.
