I live in a cosy cabin deep in in the hills of Palmwoods, surrounded by unbroken silence but last weekend or shall I call it Splendour weekend, I was shocked out of my idyllic existence to hear a party in my front yard.
Once I had phoned neighbours to check they weren’t having a party, I was informed by them that it was Splendour and that if I wanted to I could listen to it live on jjj to which I replied with expletives removed ‘why would I want to listen to it on the radio when it is in my bedroom loud and clear?’
It amazes me that Splendour can be heard all the way from Yelgun to Main Arm, I mean how loud must it be down there?
Oh and by the way, I have considered going to Splendour and I am 30ish so I am not an old grumbler, I just don’t appreciate my peaceful existence disturbed by an auditory assault at my bedtime.
By all means I hope all my friends enjoyed the music at Splendour but I ask the organisers: is it necessary that it is so loud that it can be heard all the way from Main Arm?
Oh and my internet connection didn’t even crawl, it simply failed to load, coincidence? I think not.
I guess I may as well buy a ticket next year and just not go to bed, at least there will be full internet coverage at Splendour.
