Not sure how the kids at the festival site coped last night but we FROZE! Aside from trying to tune our Rowan’s snoring we are both well rested and looking forward to day 1.
Only the Village stage is open today and from 1.20 to 10.30 we will not budge from our vantage. Last Dinosaurs, Sally Seltmann, Tim and Jean, Mr Boulet, Marina and the Diamonds, The Cool Kids, Dan Sultan followed by Ladyhawke – all essentials on my list. After that we can finally chill during The Living End (meh) before gearing up again for Peaches DJ Set. Despite being average at Berlin Festival we are still keen to give the Canadian Lass another crack.
My top three picks for the day:
Last Dinosaurs – not a massive act but I have been in love with this Brisbane four piece since hearing the blissful sounds of Honolulu earlier this year
Marina & the Diamonds – Marina’s vocal ability is simply stunning and word on the street is she puts on one hella performance
Dan Sultan - What can I say, he really is a black Elvis
Ra’s top three picks for the day
Tim and Jean – have been curious about the these Perth youngsters since the blogging world went in to a frenzy and sparked this hype
Ladyhawke – I just like her music, it’s a no brainer!
Sally Seltmann – Apparently she is incredible live
Aside from the line up we are going to be checking out the shenanigans occurring in the village. We are mostly curious about ‘Y front decorating’ – where exactly is the Y? Can we enter ‘the gherkin games’? Will this involve an actual gherkin? (I forgot to bring mine); who is Gerard and why is he giving haircuts at the village?
