It was a massive day at Flemington in scorching 40 degree heat yesterday. But the kids were resilient ( I say kids because I realised it had been 17 years since I last went to a Big Day Out so I felt a bit of a grandma) and marched through the gates in their thousands.
I developed a few new band crushes seeing the likes of Operator Please for the first time and rekindled some old flames in the form of the ever energetic Iggy Pop. I managed to escape comedy sunburn and dehydration, but a bunch of the punters will be walking lobster zombies today.
Grinderman – Mr Nick Cave
Angus and Julia Stone, but you know, the other way around
Washington – not sure if thats the set list written on her arm…
Operator Please – I want to be them :)
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes – so very chirpy
Sia – all stripy!
