i don't really have much to say about the Big Day Out other than I was FRONT ROW at Bjork.

She was completely gorgeous and amazing. and very crazy. when you first see her all you want to do is pat her head and saw 'awwww', but then you look into her eyes and realize that she is one crazy mofo who will probably bite your hand off. her setlist was a mix of old and new - surprisingly a lot of favorites such as All is Full of Love, I Miss You, Unravel, 5 Years, Hyper-Ballad, Hunter, Bachelorette, Earth Intruders, Pagan Poetry, The Anchor Song and she finished with Declare Independence. oh lord it was fucking fantastic...

to be really honest, i didnt pay much attention to the bands that were playing at the first half of the day. the only acts that i saw and paid attention to started after 5 - mainly The Arcade Fire, Silverchair, Bjork and Rage Against the Machine. oh yeah, Rage were pretty awesome, their setlist was a mix of old and new which pleased me immensely.

i woke up this morning looking like someone had airbrushed a pair of sunglasses onto my face and bad back sunburn. i didnt realise it was going to be so fucking hot! the bom said 25 degrees which...well for someone from Dubai, is nothing...but it felt like 30+ degrees yesterday. awful.

anyways, here are two i took yesterday when i got close enough to the stage and when there was decent lighting.

Hey Linah, thought you might like these photos I spotted on Flickr.


I think because this was a recent event, give it some more time and i'm sure more photos will appear soon.
