Harvest Festival Review

To say the shit hit the fan in the leadup to the Melbourne Harvest Festival would be an understatement. We witnessed timetabling problems, the promoter pissing off his headline act, transport dilemmas, sideshow inconsistencies, you name it.

Splendour In The Grass Day Three Review

And perhaps this is part of the reason why, looking back on my day, I am ever so slightly disappointed. However it’s probably only natural that the festival didn’t meet my lofty expectations after the absurdly good day I had last year, and all in all I still had a great day that was well worth the money, albeit scattered with a few let-downs.

Splendour In The Grass Day Three Review

The first two days of Splendour In The Grass left the final day with a lot to live up to. Thankfully there were some simply massive names on the bill, including a particularly nasty clash between three great acts towards the end of the day and a ton of local acts starting the day, which […]
