SUBSONIC 2017

December 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It's always a pleasure to head up to north and experience some lush greenery, choice tunes and amazing performances up at Subsonic. 

Chillin out in the river is the best way to escape the heat.

If your not one for sitting still, balancing river stones is a favourite past time.

The light funneling down the river displays a strong blue, perfect for isolating subjects.

 

The river is long and windy, undulating between deep pools and rocky shallows.
The greenery in the area is a nice change of pace for a city dweller such as myself. 

The main river bank has the vibe more of a public beach. Groups of friends hanging out, all having a good time. 

The river stage (above) sits about thirty meters form the rocky section of the river, which is nice if you want to listen to some tunes while you relax.

By night, the river stage is gorgeous. Super vivid colour combinations light up the surrounding trees. 

I had my Tarot read and it was surprisingly accuratley. IT drew the portrait of a figure trying to balance positive and negative aspects. Despair on one hand, swiftness on the other. The way forward? Victory.

The stompo stage typically offers something a little heavier if you really want to get your stomp on.

Heres a shot of the opening ceremony. Welcome to country is always an important part of any good party. This mob were gracious in sharing their culture and allowing everyone to all join in to kick things off.

A.B Original performing on the main stage. Gotta say, I thought I was pretty clever with the colour cast representing the indiginous flag in this shot.

The lifestyle village was always a mix of activity and relaxation. I just caught the end of Yoke. I wish I had made it down sooner, all those who participated looked totally blissed by the time I arrived. 

Another way to escape the heat. The Ramen Run was a fun way to get wet. 

Just before a talk on indigenous values and culture.  Lots of live music on the main stage. There really is something for everyone at this party.

Slacklining and juggling are always entertaining.

A new look takes over from last year. A shift toward illustration and away from traditional graf.

Big shout out to world UV body painting champion Andra, who goes by Inner Colour, on this masterpiece. 

Big village showcase, repping some ozzie hip hop.

Found a unicorn. It's hard to go past a good horn section.

The main stage just before a torrential downpour.

This poor guy trying to save his controller. I think it might be a little too late.

The Paradiso stage. Amazing always.

DUBFX on the mainstage

Fire performances nightly showcased some skills and techniques I hadnt seen before.
