caloundra music festival

 His highlights were the bouncy castle in the Funky Forest (he seriously could not get enough of this thing), rolling around on our picnic rug (and on any unattended rugs near ours), and Xavier Rudd's show. Yep! He has requested that we play Xavier's albums each evening since. He mainly wants to hear the didgeridoo and 'kookaburra'. 

I enjoyed the festival sooo much! It was just so easy and comfortable. You find and claim a spot on the hill with a view of the main stage, leave the picnic rugs (and pram, and whatever else) there for the day, and wander over to other stages/spaces, knowing that you still have your spot and your stuff when you return. It's not too crowded, the music is great, the line-ups for the food are short, the atmosphere is perfect. And there's a bouncy castle. All that was missing was a petting zoo.

We woke up in the morning and headed straight up to the coast for a gorgeous beach morning with friends. It's always super fun playing with them. We thought that, by waking him early and tiring him out at the beach, he'd easily have an early nap at Auntie's place before we headed to the festival for the afternoon/evening. Of course these plans never work... He was awake from 6 am until 9 pm. The little party animal. We saw The Basics, Bobby Alu, Bustamento, Xavier Rudd, Donavon Frankenreiter, The Baseballs...
