Me vs Splendour In The Grass


I’m confirmed to photograph at this year’s Splendour In The Grass festival down at Byron Bay at the start of August.

The lineup so far is:

Sigur Ros
The Living End
The Presets
Vampire Weekend
Ben Lee
Cold War Kids
The Fratellis
The Wombats
Laura Marling
The Vines
The Grates
Operator Please
Band Of Horses
Van She
The Panics
Lightspeed Champion
The Brown Birds From Windy Hill
The Music
The Gin Club

Hopefully the second announcement will have some more non-Australian acts as it’s a bit lightweight so far, especially for the money that they’re charging (AU$199 (+ booking fee) excluding accommodation – and Byron Bay really knows how to rip of people staying in the town for events, with prices tripling (and more) over the weekend. The Breeders should be playing as they’re on tour in Australia either side of Splendour so that’s one more plus point.

I’m wondering if I work like a dog and live on a diet of coffee and Red Bull for a couple of days whether it’s possible to do a live photo blog from a festival… I guess you don’t know until you try…
