Festival Review: Groovin’ The Moo - Prince of Wales Showground, Bendigo (03.05.14)

The cruel upbeat tone of my alarm sounded at 6:00AM on Saturday morning. As I momentarily considered face planting into the pillow and ignoring its sole purpose, I realised it was time to get Groovin'. The train ride in was long and tumultuous; aisles laden with inappropriately dressed festival-goers and a lone local tennis player, seemingly unimpressed by the inane amount of extra bodies that occupied her usually quiet Saturday morning train. Upon arrival the sun was shining, but our future looked bleak. Dark clouds were rolling in. We were surrounded. Luckily enough, the Groovin' gods smiled upon us, keeping us dry (for the most part).

Festival Review: Field Day - The Domain, Sydney (01.01.14)

With a big night before in check, Field Day offered enough dance music to keep the celebrators happy while offering a few more chilled out options for those still recovering from New Year’s Eve. Its size, slightly smaller than a regular festival, meant that it was easier to get around and criss-cross genres throughout the day.
