Yesterday was one fine day for raving. As usual, it was me and Simon.
Unlike Two Tribes last year, there wasn’t a definite act that we wanted to catch. Instead, our aim going in was to get tipsy and let the crowd and music take us away on a magical ride.
The event was once again split into three main areas with lots of shade and resting areas in between. Throw in the several bars, cold drink stores, ice cream stands and hot food stalls (only 2 btw!) and the atmosphere was absolutely carnival-like.
Simon and I wandered around all these areas throughout the day with several stints of sitting under the shades. Jumping around with wild abandon is usually enough to tire oneself out, but inside the tents it was hot and humid which was quite draining on us. I think we drank at least 4 litres of water each, on top of the alcohol.
Walking amongst the crowd were uniformed and plain clothes police who made their presence felt quite early on. Drugs are bad, mmkay? 😉
And of course, my neck and eyes got a good workout. Hot chicks galore! My paparazzi skills are definitely improving.
And for the ladies in the house. I didn’t forget you. 😉
Here are pictures of random strangers – Mooiness™, no?
I call this picture “The Sleeping Beauties”, except there’s really only one beauty in the photo and it ain’t me. And Simon agrees.
More photos and larger versions of the ones you see here are on my Summadayze Perth 2007 Flickr set.
I danced longer than Two Tribes last year but I think I had more fun at that than Summadayze. A couple of strangers I bumped into at the bus station after agreed. But if I had to pick one act as the best on the day, it would have to be Bob Sinclair. He came on towards the end of the night which you can see in the highlight clip (9:22).
Speaking of which … turn it up!
