Big Day Out

Last weekend I’ve attended my first festival down here. Yeah! The ‘Big Day Out‘ in the north of the city. I’ve the seen performances of

  • Cut Copy
  • Mudvayne
  • Soulwax
  • Henry Rolins (spoken word)
  • Franz Ferdinand
  • The Mars Volta
  • The White Stripes

But it felt really different than the festivals in Europe. Of course I missed my usual festival buddies but this also was the first festival that I have been to (ever!) where all guys actually went to the slasher! Which of course has the nice side effect that not every corner stinks like a toilet. One thing that was really annoying though: you were only allowed to drink alcohol in dedicated areas. I WANT MY BEER! No matter where! Sorry, I will never understand this “it’s in a paper bag! …no one knows!” thing that is happening here as well as in the US.

  • Hm... Bier nur in bestimmten Ecken? Pissegeruch nur an bestimmten Pltzen? Sonne und kein Nebel? Ich glaub, ich bin am falschen Ort... :) Aber ich kann wenigstens noch pandora.com enjoyen, whrend du nach Bierecken suchen musst... muahahaha :)
    Rock on, dude!
