April 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment


So I have compiled my little shopping list of musical goodness for the day...I know exactly who I wanna see and where and when. Ate the big bowl of noodles with chicken and spinach Nico made me and he has packed me a lunch for later, so the body is all fuelled up...let's go!


Was determined to get out into the crowd a little more today and soak up the would seem everyone is enjoying the festival. Lots of smiling faces and grooving bods moving to the music...yay!


Highlight for day two, was Buddy Guy, one talented entertainer. He had the crowd captured and I'm sure they would have loved it even if he sat there eating a sandwich, cos he would have made it great!


First up, the sublime pluckings and strummings of Harry Manx.

The energy was then amped up for guitar mad man Joe Satriani.

Bit of a guitar theme happening it would seem...the Backsliders!

The crowds enjoying Lachlan Bryan.

Then Rome arrived to do a set with Sublime, below, and ripped the place apart.
















Then to lighten things up it was time for young hearts to run free with Candi Staton...


Loved him so much the day before, I went back for a second helping of Trombone Shorty. Got out into the crowd this time and they were loving him as much as I was.
















Just when you thought it couldn't get any better...Buddy highlight for day two and man did he have fun!

















Then it was back to the fast and furious energy of the Specials to relive some of my teenage years...



Time for a sweet, chocolatey snack...the smooth voice of Keb Mo.Earth Wind and Fire then took us on a wild trip to Boogie Wonderland...disco is so much fun!
















And to finish the night in classic style...Crosby, Stills and Nash...amazing harmonies still! 


Huge day!
