Local act Royston Vasie put on a killer live performance that exceeded expectations; their sound is replete with jangly guitar, psychedelia and some laid back vocals to boot. “You Want It Now” is performed with gusto and primes the punters for headlining seminal 90’s act The Afghan Whigs .
Another year, another Splendour in the Grass - though this year we seem to have gone back in time, with the festival returning to its Byron Bay home for the first time since 2009. This brief trip down memory lane will forever be remembered as a muddy affair, with today's 30 minute downpour - hail, brimstone and all - destroying the festival site and making those who brought gumboots truly thankful - none more so than the ones selling them on site for $50+ a pop!
