SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2016
Yeh look after Thursday nights antics involving way too much indulging, Friday morning couldnt be much worse. Waking up in a sweaty van basically steaming myself was tough but knowing it was day 1 of my adventure photographing the live music for SITG kept me alive, or maybe it was the 5 litres of water, nurofen, hydralytes, banana bread etc that kept me sane.
Either way I was up and about to begin my photographic journey into Australia's biggest weekend since Pokemon Go was released onto the app store.
Check out some of Fridays snaps featuring the following artists in order including some onstage love from Violent Soho.
Sampa The Great > Total Giovanni > Hayden James > The 1975 > Violent Soho > Illy > Hermitude > The Strokes
The morning of day 2 in Northern NSW went a bit smoother, I could actually lift my head off the pillow without feelings of regret.
Speaking of regrets, there was none when seeing King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and At The Drive In. Punk was out in force for Saturday at Splendour In The Grass as well as some of the worlds biggest DJs in Snakehips, What So Not and LDRU.
A special tribute with In Loving Memory of Szymon was definitely a highlight with Sam from Ball Park Music, David from Gang of Youths and Little May joining the brothers on stage.

Sunday was an electronic kind of day.
Starting with Jess Kent and UNFD legend Remi before the sun set, ending with Slumberjack and Flume, I knew Sunday was going to be a big one.
There was something about the crowds on the last day of the festival that made it obvious that the common motto of the day was to finish off everything you own and go as hard as possible.
