Holy fcukballs - just got home from the Artifact/Colour of Sounds HQ and was privy to a sneak peak to some of the amazing treats lined up for this event. Wow. Unbelievable.

The site is a picturesque gem that looks like it was built for doofing. The production is going to be some next level shiz.

Excited is an understatement - LET ME AT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also grabbed a bunch more tickets for people in need - PM me

The day has finally arrived!!

Site details and directions have been mailed out with the newsletter and can be accessed via the FB event page.

The site has not been hit by any of this storm that we are experiencing in Melbourne so it is looking like a GREAT weekend.

Remember to drive safe, take care of yourself and your mates AND of course, leave no trace by taking home all of your rubbish.

This is an amazing site that we are lucky enough to be using so let's make sure it's left in the pristine state in which we find it

There are still some tickets available on the door. Gates open 2pm.

Ditto. Better to be safe than be these guys:

But yeh, all word from the site is that it has been dry up there in recent weeks and the site is in tip top condition!

Just a reminder guys there is no BYO so to avoid it being confiscated, please leave it at home.

The site has received very little rain so is in great condition.

Drive safe and we'll see you soon.

Unfortunately Dickster Live and his Dick Trevor set where at reduced volume, which was a little disappointing. I was chatting to him at the back of the dancefloor prior to him doing his Green Nuns set and he said it had been difficult playing with the volume so subdued. Then to cap it off, they cut the sound/festival while we were talking. The good thing with Dick was he was like "c'est la vie", "this kind of stuff happens sometimes".

I have to say this weekend had it's ups and downs (the volume mainly). But I had a ball, caught up with old friends and made some new. All in all a good result. Now time to get these weary old bones into recovery mode

The volume issue was extremely unfortunate and disappointing but when faced with the prospect of the festival being shut down (even though there were permits for the music to run as per the set times) it was the best compromise that could be reached.

We were extremely lucky to get in two awesome days of music in such an amazing location and were blessed by great weather.

Awesome friendly crowd and quality music

Good thing I didnt go then, I wouldn't have been nice to be around if my Green Nuns set was binned.

That's a shame, heard the rest of the gig was grouse

Indeed my man, I would rather have a stomp to Mr Trevor turned down than not to hear him at all, but I would have been ecstatic to hear him at full volume

It is quite unfortunate that the local residents (I heard up to 9km away) who complained have no concept of people enjoying a weekend away listening to amazing tunes.

The gig was definitely grouse, the spirit of the crowd was awesome and I am glad I went. I have great memories of the weekend that I will treasure.

I am sure the next one will be even better.
