The Man and new kids on the block Givers was a brilliant combination albeit a bit of an odd one, and chuck in opening act Guineafowl and you really do have an incredible gig for a Thursday night.

It certainly wasn’t a bad thing, as it allowed for time to fully explore the festival grounds and really take in the atmosphere.

But to me, the real strength of the festival lies in the quality of the smaller bands, both Australian and international.
