This was the first music festival I ever went to and I would have to say it was the best! It was a last minute thing as I didn't think I would want to go but once all my friends were going I thought I would give it a go. The whole thing was so much fun, from trying to pack the car with our camping gear, clothes, drinks, food and going through our music collection to find the best CD's to get us in the mood, to the 40 min drive and 40 min wait in the line just to get in, I was having a ball and that was before I'd even got in the gates!
As we drove over the paddock all you could see was thousands of tents in a row and the excitement in the car could hardly be contained as we found the rest of our group and set up camp.
The best night was the first night for sure, my friend and I had all our stuff in her car and in our excitement we ran off to find everyone else not realising we had locked the keys in the car with everything we needed! We had to run all the way over the other side of the property to find the RACT to come and unlock our car which he couldn't do because it was European and he didn't have the equipment! Luckily we found the keys sitting under the tent and not in the car so the night was saved! We were determined to have fun after missing out on some of the acts... it wasn't hard.
I remember getting up on my friends shoulders and dancing away to SPIDERBAIT and once of their best songs buy me a pony! It was so surreal looking back and seeing the whole hill just packed with people having the time of their lives. Then came a good old fav De La Soul and the new and upcoming superstars (at the time) Hill Top Hoods! There was something for everyone, whether you liked rock, hip hop, dance, folk, it was all there with acts like Missy Higgins, Pete Murray, Ben Harper, Cat Empire, Xavier Rudd and the list goes on.
I could go on and on and on and write a novel with how much fun I had but I think the best thing is to experience it for yourself, so get a good group of people, some camping gear and a ticket and get yourself to the next falls festival and I promise you will not regret it!
