well what a great way to bring in the summer of 2009/2010. such an awesome line up was assembled for a cracker of a day out at the show grounds. although the weather didnt put on its best show, it still turned out to be a great day for all.
my thoughts on the music:
well the layout was a great start. to find your fav dj was not to hard at all.
but i headed straight for the outrage arena. o what a line up!
inside, tucked away under the big top. there where 4 main reasons i went there... and they go by the names of.... drop the lime, bloodybeetroots, acid jacks.... and crookers.
to start off.. drop the lime killed it.. such a catchy set wich got eveyrone up and moving. it was a great start to what would be a killer display of awesomeness!
after that, what i really was keen to see, bloody beetroots.... O MY! now if there banger set did not get u moving and tapping your feet... well i dont no what would... there dirrty electro sound is like no other...
then to some melbourne heros! acid jacks... now these 2 guys play anything they want... and it works.. and it always has the crowd wanting more... there blend of elctroey hip hoppy stuff really works the crowd and is absolutley cherry topped ice cream to my ears! for a melbourne duo i love them. and would pay almost any amount of money to see them. there shows are killer and i cant get enough of them...
then to the epic ending... crookers... i saw this duo last year... and was left wanting more... but this year topped it all... to go off with a bang from the crookers was amazing.. and i just had to go home and chuck on some of their music... or you could have followed to prince to catch more of them.. :) they smashed it... non stop bliss till the end... there catchy thumping bass just gets u hooked and u dont want to let go.
i am megga happy that i chose crookers as my send off over deadmau5... i caught a few mins of deadmau5... and i think it was a let down.. down temp... not as hard and dirrty as i like it.. and left the crowd feeling kind of let down... it was a meh kind of set...
as for the whole day... well it was amazing.. easily one of the best venues going around right now... with the combination of inside and outside arenas... mass loads of seating.. and amusements and food stores easily accesable..
2 thumbs up from me... bring on next year 2010!
