Big Day Out 2010 (part ii)

And so we continue the epic saga that is Big Day Out #100.

The dapper young fellas who are the Horrors, impeccably clad in St Augustine Academy threads played a flawlessly effortless set. I did a shoot with the mastermind behind St Augustine last year for Academy for Men, you can check it out here.

And then the rain came. I would have liked to have been shooting Dizzy Rascal at this moment, but, what with $15000 worth of gear on me, I was stuck under shelter, photographing the wet punters.

Kasabian brought all the kids to the mosh pit, with less head banging, more screaming and swooning.

Mars Volta were on fire. You can tell these boys have had many years practice.

Powderfinger were up next. I shot their press shots a couple of months ago, you can check them out here. (I got a wave from a couple of the boys onstage; it made my day).



Muse were as epic as one would expect, if I closed my eyes, it was like playing Guitar Hero really really loudly. Damn fine musicians.

And lastly, Peaches. My Gosh Peaches, you are truly amazing. You are all good things Berliner, with a New York accent. You were the perfect way to end the 100th Big Day Out. You never cease to amaze.
