Live Review: Summadayze - Rymill Park, Adelaide (31.12.12)

A brigade of bum shorts and nipple singlets greet you at the gate. Hoards of face-chewers are cheering and dancing to Jay-Z tracks playing between sets, completely oblivious to the big names about to grace the stage. As the sun goes down and the chilly night air hits, the punters begin to further undress; tying their singlets around their waists, imitating a bizarre 90s trend. The portaloos fill with girls re-applying their heavy eye makeup and excessive bronzer, sharing obscene tales about their day and duck-facing to document the adventure. Meanwhile, international guests perform to shallow crowds, urging them to applaud. No, you have not accidentally entered some eerie alternate universe music festival, this is Summadayze.
