There were pints flying, brollies up, City fans trying to outmosh the moshers and even pink cowboy hats. It was a free for all but you can't deny the music - it was awesome.
From hearing The Enemy with Away From Here along the riverside, to Kasabian holding their own with Club Foot and Processed Beats, the lesser bands worked the crowd with ease - but that's easy when you have such crowd pleasers.
Nothing was more crowd pleasing than the four belted out by Oasis as they came on. Rock n Roll Star, Layla, Cigarettes and Alcohol and Roll With It sent the crowd into, dare I say it, a frenzy.
It sounded like the band were never going to make it to the stadium - apparently they got stuck on the Severn Bridge - but everyone was glad they finally did.
Who knows what would have happened otherwise.
Forget Liam, Masterplan and Half a World Away blows any rock 'n' roll bravado out of the water. They were beautifully amazing. There is nothing to make men sing whilst gazing into each other's eyes like an Oasis ballad.
The Importance of Being Idle is my favourite of the recent hits and it would have benefited from support acts Rhys Ifans from The Peth crashing on to the stage.
I don't care if they are cocky crowd pleasers or have produced the same type of stuff for the last 15 years, you can't deny that Noel Gallagher is one of the top singer songwriters of his generation.

GENERATOR problems and power cuts may have marred the opening nights of this tour, but Oasis last night had no problem electrifying thousands of fans on their only night in Wales.
Liam and Noel Gallagher put on a united front at the Millennium Stadium.
The pair have had their public differences over the years, never more so, it seemed, than earlier this year, when Noel publicly derided his brother as “rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy”.
Certainly last night the atmosphere between the siblings was noticeably tense, even if there was no evidence of the civil war that threatened to break out following Noel’s outburst in April.
Nonetheless, the growing difference between the pair was evident from the moment they strode confidently out in front the rabid crowd of around 70,000.
Liam’s trademark green parka – part of his new Pretty Green clothing range – looked positively scruffy next to his brother’s immaculate white blazer, paired with a striped pale pink scarf.
But both outfits fitted the bill adequately as they launched into set opener Rock’n’roll Star.
Bravely following the Definitely Maybe classic with two new songs, the Manchester Britpop veterans capitalised on the teeming enthusiasm among the crowd with a sequence that might have lost the attention of a less involved audience.
Liam’s chance to shine came shortly afterwards, with early song Slide Away showcasing his distinctive vocals, and his own composition Songbird. The budding songwriter grasped it with both hands.
Kicking the evening into gear in style, the band rolled out the anthem Morning Glory, before cheekily dedicating My Big Mouth to Charlotte Church.
From there on in, there was nothing but adoration for a band fans had travelled from miles around to see, as hit after hit was blended stylishly with tracks from latest album Dig Out Your Soul.
Early support sets had come from The Peth, complete with a hobbling Rhys Ifans, and The Enemy, who were followed by a barnstorming outing from Kasabian – very much from the Oasis school of macho-posturing – which threatened to steal the show.
But a vivacious performance from the Manchester favourites put paid to any argument they should disappear quietly into the sunset.
