The first big rock-biased festival of the summer kicks off today over five stages with Blur, Stereophonics and Beautiful South being safe choices to headline the main stage. Highlight of the day, however, is either Gomez on the second stage or Basement Jaxx for danceheads. Sunday's top billings are the Manic Street Preachers and Massive Attack, but the day's two essential experiences, Fatboy Slim and The Roots, can be found in the Slam Tent. Weekend tickets pounds 58, day passes pounds 32.50. Balado, near Kinross, Scotland (bookings: 0141-339 8383; info: 07000 113114) today and tomorrow.
