In my last post I mentioned going to Future Music Festival over the weekend. Like always, I took a film camera along for the ride. It’s not a festival I would usually go to and I wasn’t really interested until the second lineup was realeased with New Order and Friendly Fires on it. Luckily, I managed to score tickets through a Sportsgirl competition. Highlights of the festival were definitely Friendly Fires and New Order, as well as the free Cornetto ice creams that were being handed out (ice cream will always save the day). I also got to see a bit of Hercules & Love Affair, Die Antwoord, The Rapture, and The Wombats. Lowlights mainly had to do with the un-chill vibe of the crowds and the shocking traffic situation afterwards. My friend and I eventually managed to hail a taxi away from the festival site but others weren’t so lucky. I probably wouldn’t attend this festival again, but am so happy that I had the chance to finally see Friendly Fires (lots of missed connections in the past) and witness a seminal band like New Order perform.
1. Saw Hercules & Love Affair at the DFA stage. The Smirnoff sign kind of kills this photo for me.
2. Friendly Fires. Every time I listen to their songs now I have the urge to dance like Ed.
3. Lights at New Order. I really like how this turned out even though it’s not of anything in particular.
4. NEW ORDER.

I posted more photos to Flickr but to be honest, I didn’t get many good shots.
