Scored a late ticket to the first day of Falls in Fremantle. Went for Vampire Weekend, who were great, Pnau and Peking Duck were fun, Holy Holy and Montaigne both good as well.

I’ve found festivals these days severely lacking in international artists that make the cost worthwhile. It’s like two headliners and the rest are Aussie.

If I had paid for the tickets, I would have agreed with you. They could have combined the two days into one for more perceived value but it was pretty sold out on day 1, so clearly they don’t need to.

I also think the fracturing of music tastes means there’s less acts that have big name status and broad appeal.

fu** me it was loud yesterday. I could hear it clear as a bell in the backyard. Was way louder than Chisel on nye yet was further away.
The sound was superb. I haven’t been a regular festival goer for about 10 years (been to a couple when someone I wanted to see was on) but it seemed much better and the time between acts was a minute or two at most.

Did it seem ******* loud? I was wondering how loud it must have been at the ground considering how loud it was at my place.

Caught Brandon Allen at the Duke of George last Saturday night. Amazing saxophonist from Perth but London based for the last 20 years. Bought both his cds I was so impressed and even got to chat with him a bit before and after the show. Lovely bloke. Very down to earth considering his bio.
