Well you’ve made it easy for me to choose my holiday dates this year as my family doesn’t want to be Byron Bay while the Belongil Fields drugfest known as Splendour is on. But I’ll tell you what: you can have my house in town for the duration as long as you promise to clean up the graffiti, broken bottles, rubbish and human waste left behind by your patrons all around the vicinity, and you won’t have to worry about losing any sleep due to the all-night noise as you’ll be too busy counting the money, which is what it’s all about really, isn’t it?
