The James Lavelle and DJ Shadow sets were available to stream online for several years, but have since become unavailable[2]. No known copies exist currently.


The Dazed & Confused website featured the following description of the events from 9th of October:

"DJ Shadow

Mixing seminal hip hop breaks with nu skool tripped out beats, Shadow wooed the crowd in attendance for the last night party with immaculately mixed funky tunes.

Thom and Johnny from Radiohead

They played an excellent six song acoustic set with Johnny on guitar and keyboards for different songs.

The set list included My Iron Lung and Fake Plastic Trees and three new songs previewed from their current studio work for their new album.

It was without doubt the highlight of the week. A real full stop to the all the events that took place. They are the best band in the world. The coolest of people and the most imaginative of mind.

James Lavelle

Complete with rose coloured hair, Lavelle dropped a selection of Mo Wax style beats and pieces culminating in the junglist Fugees 'Ready or Not' bootleg which sent the crowd skidding on the dancefloor on spilt beer before two fire engines arrived following a false fire alarm at the venue."[3]
