041 | SxROCKING THE DAISIES 2016, PT. I

Thursday at Rocking the Daisies is an anomaly. There isn't really that much to do but also you're finding yourself the best spot in the campsite. The wind doesn't help but there is an undeniable gees among the hammering of tent pegs and the sound of laughter that hangs on the trees. The energy in the campsite is palpable, there are people already on their ear. It's only as sun sets that the stages open and the sound of music livens up the hills. It's a bag of brown paper kittens with string or something...

Friday (all tragedy aside) was a beautiful day. This weather actually suits me. The beach bar grew in a matter of minutes and the tangled mass of humans just kept gyrating and writhing in the sun. The empty plein that was the campsite yesterday now sprawled out as far as you could see through squinted eyes. The highlight of the day was seeing Ang fill the dome - something that she set out to do as soon as she knew her set-time. Shooting portraits with Ang and Moonchild takes a close second-place for highlight of the day because they're both very bright (their hair literally) and bubbly, big personalities! As soon as the sun started to dip the wind went with it and that marked the beginning of my romance with the Two's Up stage. There's something about this 'other' stage that held my interest captive and kept my eyes entertained. The electro dome was nothing short of gratuitous! Just a massive sea of people, thrashing and flailing against each other like waves on rocks.
