Big Day Out 2013 @ Gold Coast Parklands, 20.01.2013 – The Very Belated Quick Round-Up

A couple of years ago I got back from a trip to the UK and a few hours later was out photographing a festival in the Botanic Gardens.  Unfortunately I had been en route and had missed the far superior line-up of the first day of Sunset Sounds but getting out of the house to […]

Soundwave 2013 on Film

I can remember saying when I got my first digital camera that I saw no reason to stop using my film camera and expected to keep using both cameras side-by-side.  For a while I did keep photographing gigs in film and digital but it didn’t last too long.  Since that time I’ve had rolls of random […]

Harvest 2012 @ The Botanic Gardens, Brisbane, 18.11.2012: Part 2

Looking back over 2012’s music festivals, it was definitely the year of disappointing festivals.  Whether a case of average line-ups or on-the-day issues, none really delivered as an overall package, even though there were obvious pockets of quality bands and quality sets at each festival.

The Presets were Parklife’s main stage headliners, a somewhat risky proposition given that when the lineup was announced and the tickets went on sale, they had yet to release their third album.  They get a reasonable crowd but The Riverstage is nowhere near as busy as it had been during the afternoon for the likes […]

Parklife 2013 @ Brisbane Botanic Gardens, 29.09.2012: Part 1

When it came around to writing something about Parklife 2012, I realised that, months after the event, I had no notes and most of what had already been written in the quick round-up post applied when thinking back to that Saturday at the end of September When it came around to looking to select the […]
