Festival Review: Stereosonic Day Two - Sydney Showground (30.11.14)

Stereosonic has grown into a phenomenally large festival to rival the biggest calender events in Australia's music scene. With big music festivals dropping like flies left, right and centre as of a few years ago, this super-scaled dance epic has managed to outweigh virtually everything that can be mentioned in the same breathe, and it has done so off the back of stellar production and flawless organisation. You can forget the fact that the biggest names in the EDM (and it's billion off-shoots) world were here to purvey the party, from Calvin Harris and Skrillex to Tiësto and Carl Cox, that was all simply an added bonus (albeit a very great one). What really worked here was how Stereosonic have filtered acts between stages so that each were consistent in both atmosphere and sound.
