It took 91 group emails to arrange a marquee because the weather was threatening to be horrible. It took 1 weekend to make the flag. It was another great year with all the great and amazing friends and brothers. We had fun, lots of fun. Not least because the rain was perfectly timed: when we were dancing and sweating to Cut Copy. Grinderman were amazing, we made sure we went up the front for Mr Nick Cave and Co. What a band, what an atmosphere.
We go every year, this is the first one in 8 that my sister hasn't been there (she's overseas, so pretty good excuse) and every year they add a little something to the festival without taking anything away and I think that's what I love the most. I remember the year they put in the first compost loos in, it doesn't sound like a big deal but now, years later they are the only type of loos they have. This year they had a new bar Eric's where you could sit and see the stage, I hope they keep it because it was really nice to have somewhere to chill and meet people. They always have great food, a weird and ecclectic line up, no advertising, BYO, secret-not-so-secret parties in the bush camp, places to chill, places to party and most importantly it feels like everyone is on the same level. Thanks Aunty Meredith for another awesome festival.
(I didn't take that many photos, still getting used to carrying the camera around. I love to take photos by sometimes feel a bit, I dunno, wanky? I know it's just something I have to get over!)
Meredith, will be seeing you next year.
