Parklife 2010

So I recently went to the Parklife festival, which was incredibly enjoyable. There were four stages situated in Adelaide's Botanic Gardens, each stage showcasing a variety of different artists. The festival's website says this, "PARKLIFE is Australia's most forward‐looking music festival, bringing you a lineup of artists who completely define the moment in music." I suppose that is a fairly accurate description of the talent they had lined up. There was something like over 40 acts there, including Groove Armada, Missy Elliot, Mix Master Mike, etc, however Rhiannon and I only saw the following:

- Stubanga
- Wolf Gang
- Darwin Deez
- The Wombats
- Kele
- Holy Ghost!
- Cut Copy
- The Dandy Warhols

All in all, it was a good day. The wait for the port-o-potties was never painfully long and I was only asked if I was willing to trade drugs for a lawn chair once. The $9.50 beers were a bit of a downer though.

Wolf Gang - Back to Back
Darwin Deez - Radar Detector
The Wombats - Kill the Director
Kele - Tenderoni
Cut Copy - Out There On The Ice
