    We've got tickets and looking forward to it. Unfortunatley, we've been left kombiless for the weekend but we'll be there none the less (in a tent or panel van). We'll probably be the ones spinning fire or juggling with LED equipment etc. at night. Generally, its hard to miss.

    I will try to stop by to say hello.

    As for food... let's hope that trippy taco will be there!

    Cheers

    See you there. We'll be in a panel van this time.
    A fun recommendation is the band ME. They are kindof a glam rock theatrical band. Seen them a few times including at FRL 09. Not everyday listening but great entertainment with a fantastic light show.

    You forgot to mention that today they had one of the highest rainfall in victoria....that means it may be muddy.

    The festival was held inside a small volcanic crater, a beautiful location.... the mud dried out in the sun, and the festival eventually started hours behind ... but it ended up a success, despite the incredibly cold nights (apparently, several unprepared punters were treated for hypothermia after the first night!). Good bands, positive environment .... and this festival definitely had the best food of any that I'd been to!

    I did a walk around on the first day and chatted to the owners of the four kombis I found (and snapped pics) .... another two arrived later but I never got time to revisit.
