NYE Shennanigans

January 3, 2015
One of the few photos from NYE and it sums up that night at the festival. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ I only got about five “F^ck Americas” while the rest were all warm and welcoming. Met a lot of Americans living over here abroad and tons and tons (and tons) of Kiwis approached me to see which state I was from and how I enjoyed being in their country. It was one hell of a bass filled night! 🎼

  

Angus & Julia Stone Surprise

December 31, 2015

HAPPY NYE! This morning the festival turned into a mud fest as the rain started to fall. As I inched my way out of my damp tent to get some necessary food I heard a band start playing in the distance. They sounded familiar and it was strange bc it was 12:00pm and music wasn’t due to begin until 2:00pm.. I liked their style and then I heard her voice.. It was Julia from Angus & Julia Stone playing a surprise warm up set for for their headlining spot later on tonight! 🎼 Now, these guys are one of the three CDs that I found myself listening to on repeat these past couple years while traveling and their music means a lot to me. They were my main attraction to coming here in first place. There were about a total of 30 people coming and going through their 45 minute set and afterwards Julia said “Thank you!” where I replied “No, Thank You!” In which she quickly responded with a smile, “No! Thank YOU!!” They showed their appreciation and then walked off the stage. My festival has been made. #thankful. 

HAVE A FUN NEW YEARS EVERYONE. 🍻
