Datarock, Jamie T, Hilltop Hoods, and Moby. Some of my photos from Day One of Sunset Sounds. It was a bit overcast plus most of the festival took place in the evening, so my photos are a bit dark. More photos after the jump.
Datarock. Dodgy photo, I know. But you can kind of see them. In their tracksuits. Which would have been BOILING. I only got to see the last couple of songs. But their energy on stage is brilliant and they definitely had the crowd going.
People who will probably hate me for putting these up.
Jamie T & The Pacemakers. It was a bit of an agonising decision between them and Emiliana Torrini. Damn those timetable clashes. In the end, my gut instinct won out and I stayed at the main stage for Jamie T. These kids always put on a frenetic show and I couldn’t deny myself the pleasure of being part of that again.
(Photos of Hilltop Hoods would go here, but I didn’t take any because to be honest I’m not a fan. I just stayed at that stage to secure a spot for Moby.)
Blurry Moby. I took this photo using the “B” setting. Obviously my hand wasn’t steady enough. His set was amazing. The best way to top off a fantastic afternoon of festival madness. Although the constant “thank you, thank you, thank you” came across as both irritating and insincere (probably a you-had-to-be-there kind of thing). Despite this, his set was the unexpected highlight of my evening. Listening to We Are All Made of Stars in an open air setting, underneath a blanket of stars, is almost a spiritual experience.
Day Two photos coming up soon.
