The vibe was chilled yesterday at the North Byron Parklands as punters relaxed into Falls Festival on day two of the three day music and arts event.
Relaxing was the key and the ki and the chi and food outlets did a roaring trade as patrons tended their hangovers and explored all that Falls has to offer after a long day and night of anticipation of 2017’s dawn.
The ‘look-at-me’ gen were all sparkles and sprinkles and boho glitter-glam and the open spaces of the parklands gave everyone room to rest and work their festival groove.
Highlights of the musical day were Illy who had a packed Forest Stage venue throbbing to Australian Hip-Hop and Violent Soho who had fans pressing ever forward for more of their good stuff in the Valley Amphitheatre.
The Avalanches gave the crowd what they came for and fill-in band Pond expressed their gratitude to punters who stayed and listened though they weren’t on the bill.
The day’s ‘ahhh’ award went to heartthrob Matt Corby who as well as being totally gorgeous, is a talented multi-instrumentalist, modern day crooner who held everyone in the palm of his hand, then gave a little squeeze of new year’s day love for good measure.
