Gold Canary.

Laneway Festival was incredible, and most importantly, we got to see Cloud Control! (please excuse the poor quality of the above snap. It was taken mid-jump and mid-crowd) Now, indulge in a little of their musical prowess here.
i got to wear my new high-waisted cutoff overalls, which was a definate plus, while also stalking out the many festival outfits. I think Izzy from Views of Now perfectly captures the vibe:


One thing that hits you at an indie music festival is that one person's seemingly individual expression of clothing can look alot like someone elses' . Which leads me to:

Hipster Bingo
The most fun you'll have at a festival (apart from the music)
What you need: a festival, and relatively comprehensive counting skills
What to do: make a note of hipster things to look out for, and count those you see. (We lost count of the number of hipster tattoos at Laneway.) Possible bingo list includes:
  • Laceup boots
  • Quirky tattoos
  • Hair braids
  • High waisted cutoffs
  • Lace singlets
  • 70s print shirts
  • Felt hats
and the list goes on.
