It was a case of ‘power to the people’ when Mullumbimby was hit by a storm, followed by a power outage, during peak hour at the Mullum Music Festival on Saturday night.

At one point the Magic Bus was the brightest and loudest thing in the town.

But, as usual, Mullum made the most of it with the streets lit up by mobile phones and buskers’ LEDs.

Inside the darkened Civic Hall, Saint Sister led the audience in a chorus of Dancing in the Dark.

Mercifully, not all the town was affected and power was restored quickly to the main venues.

Over at the High School, Osaka Monaurail had everyone dancing so hard they were almost self-illuminating.

Fortunately, the weather held for Sunday’s parade, and yet another successful weekend wrapped last night with a punters spilling out of venues all over town reeling off their own personal ‘best of the fest’ lists.
