The Top 5 Performances from the 2014 Meredith Music Festival!

Tell you what, it was a bloody good feeling returning to the ‘Sup for my second Meredith Music Festival.

This year was no exception, particularly with such a stellar line up boasting the likes of The War On Drugs, De La Soul and Factory Floor but for me, there were 5 standout acts that made my Meredith experience THAT much better.
