ARIA winning Gang of Youths headlined on Friday, living up to their name getting great reviews, and international act Future Islands stole the show.
“They were genuine entertainers, sensational,” festival-goer Alexie Hamilton said.
“Definitely the highlight for me, they danced and talked to the crowd.”
The rain poured down, only adding to the atmosphere of the show – the crowd stayed and danced.
There were no dark clouds to be seen on Saturday, and music lovers sought shade, or brought their own.
A couple, who came from the Gold Coast to their first festival last year – Fairgrounds – returned, and said it was definitely worth the trip.
Sydneysiders Diablo Smith and Steph Patch were enjoying the low key atmosphere of the festival.
“There are no dickheads,” Diablo said.
“Just a really good vibe, kind of family friendly, and not too tweenie.”
The record store was a hit, as people sifted through records to find a gem, kids played on the carnival rides, and local vendors set up food stalls, providing plenty of culinary options.
