Okay enough complaints about the people. or the weather. Armoured with raybans, brollie (the impossibly big one J was holding...), and of cos the 3litre water bag (the beer queue was just insane)...we were well prepared. Plus seats in front of the food booth...and behind the (insanely crowded) drinks booth...what more can we ask for?
but great music, of cos.
Mixture of the good and the bad, with a booming surprisingly good sound system. We liked Girls (who started with an emotional rendition of And I will always love you.. and they are not girls!!) Laura Marling (folksy), Feist (++..great performer) and M 83. Too bad we missed Cults..came in just in time for Yuck. Though Chairlift was reviewed to be disappointing in Life, I liked Bruises lots...heard it from such a long time ago. Horror's Still Life had a really awesome sound on youtube, but as one of the three closing acts, was overshadowed by Feist and M83.
Did I say we sat right in front of Prive's booth?? the smallish unfilling Turkey/cheese wrap and Sundried tomatoes spinach salad.
Walked all the way to the exit end to check out the other food stall which turned out to be a repeat Shiraz stall that was next to Prive...
We had BBQ chips x 4 portions (bloody hell, $2.50 each, and tasted like NTUC chilli chips...)
Though Shiraz's chicken kebab sandwich was quite filling...and almost had seconds cos they didnt keep the coupons...messy messy (even the sandwich itself was messy...)
