Splendour in the Grass: Best Bits

I fulfilled a somewhat lifelong dream of attending Splendour in the Grass recently, and needless to say, I had the time of my life.
Warning: she’s a long read.

Making the long 17 hour road trip up to Byron Bay from Melbourne may have been tedious, but it was well worth every $1.49 per litre we spent on petrol (way to break the bank).

I could spend years talking about the ~vibe~,  how cold it was at night, and how steep the hill to the ampitheatre was, but instead I’ll kick it straight to the music.

Inspired by dreams, African rhythms and the abstract concepts of geography, Tombolo’s music will transport you to wherever you want to go. Dolphin Skis is the perfect vehicle to take you on a tropical journey to escape this cold Melbourne winter.

If you haven’t heard Childish Gambino’s new song, or at least heard something ABOUT it then I don’t know where you’ve been, but it’s damn important.

Me geeking out about Jamie xx music videos

If you know me, you’ll know that I have a deep obsession with the English producer/musician, Jamie xx.

I recently watched the music video to his track ‘Gosh’ and, holy moly, it’s one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen. Basically, you just need to watch it for yourself and you’ll understand. Keep in mind that there is no CGI or green screen or anything used in the making of it…
