Laneway and Splore City Highlights

Written by: 13 February 2011 2 Comments

My highlights from the two festivals below.

I didn’t get to go to a festival in the refurbished Aotea Square – Auckland Laneway, while having some kiwi bands who would have been good to see, didn’t have Bear in Heaven or Les Savy Fav and i was hanging out to see them both so I crossed the ditch to stay and go to the festival with my brother.

It was super cool. Split over 4 stages at an Arts University Campus in Central-West Sydney. The bands who stood out were the two i’d most wanted to see.

Someone got this video of Les Savy Fav singer Tim Harrington dry raping a VIP member at the side of the audience.

Splore City ended up moving to the town hall, which suited the acts i wanted to see, Caribou and Four Tet far better than a mid day concert could, whether in the square with grass and trees or not. Luckily security were very relaxed and i wasn’t strip searched for chewing gum and could drink a beer where ever i pleased.

The venue worked perfectly.

    Did you meet a friendly caribou?
    I hope Splore city can come back again, sounds like it was good 🙂

    close. he was the Jagermeister Stag. You could smell his getup before you saw him. He was a stinky stag.

    I don’t know if they’ll try this again, but we’ll see in a few years i guess.
