If I had to pick my favourite thing about summer, it would be summer music festivals and the amazing bands that tour. Over the past couple of weekends, I attended Big Day Out and St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, and I had an absolute blast. Seeing Röyksopp live was an absolute dream come true for me as I had been waiting six years for this. When I first discovered them when I was 17, they completely changed my life and are the reason why I love, live and breathe music. They put on such a mind blowing performance and I want to go back to that moment in my life so much. Foster The People put on such a fun show too, everyone really got into it. I was looking forward to seeing Best Coast too, but they started at 11:40am, which was way too early and The Jezabels and Architecture In Helsinki clashed with Röyksopp. It's okay though because I've already seen them live before.
Laneway once again proved to be the best festival Australia has to offer. Every year, the lineups are literally perfect. I saw Yuck, Cults, The Drums, Toro y Moi, The Horrors, M83, Active Child, Washed Out and SBTRKT live, all of who were so incredible. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to see so many talented musicians with my lovely friends over the past two weekends. Music is something that really means a lot to me.
Bring on Future Music Festival, Neon Indian, Bombay Bicycle Club and Florence + The Machine!
