Escape to the Park 2008 was held on Saturday 29 November in King’s Park. Performing were Abbe May & The Rockin Pneumonia, Kate Miller-Heidke, Bob Evans, Ben Lee and The Cruel Sea.

It was a lovely day for a picnic, and that’s what most did, as it’s not the kind of festival where there’s a lot of dancing, as there’s only a small area at the side of the stage suitable for that.

And read a review at Fasterlouder.

The festival season has begun, though the summer festival weather hasn’t!

But it didn’t stop the fun last Sunday, 23 November, with Vroom Festival on the Oak Lawn at UWA, and Global Gathering on the Esplanade.

Vroom 2008! was the end of year Student Summer break party, but students and non students of all ages were welcome. Bands that played were John and the Inverarities, Harlequin League, Red Jezebel, The Panda Band, Bluejuice, Dukes of Windsor and British India. It was promoted as ‘good food, good times, good toons’. It was a good time, good music, but I definitely didn’t consider pies, sausage rolls, hot dogs and simple sandwiches worth a mention as ‘good food’(wasn’t bad though)!

A review of the music elsewhere online by Fasterlouder and PerthMusic.


Global Gathering hit Perth for the first time this year, and featured acts like Kraftwerk, Mark Ronson, Gorillaz Sound System, Sasha, The Orb, Felix Da Housecat and many more.

John FogertyThe 5th West Coast Blues n Roots Festival has been and gone.
A lot of good music, good vibes and sunshine, and a lack of rubbish thanks to all the green initiatives! Unfortunately some issues again with sound like at Southbound and certain ticket holders having trouble getting in, but all in all I think it’s one of the more well organised and relaxed festivals of the summer.

Good Vibes!Good Vibrations 2008 was held on Sunday, and the vibes were mostly good!

Heirisson Island was used as a venue for the first time, but I’m not sure it was such a good idea. It was dust bowl, and there were long walks to get in and out. It is a nice central location though, and I thought the organisation of things like toilets, food and layout was ok, considering it’s a big festival.

It was a hot and humid day in Perth…. but the music made it worth it, in my humble opinion…

These photos are by me, and there’s a heap more on Flickr, but I’m an amateur with a simple camera, so be prepared for some pretty bad photos! 😀

I’ll add more to this post if I come across anything.

I’m not one for writing reviews (as you may have noticed), but I did want to find some time to round up some photos, videos and thoughts about the 2007 West Coasts Blues and Roots Festival held this weekend in Fremantle. We had a great time; enjoying good music, friends, a great atmosphere and the sun, every now and then! What did you think? Leave a comment below!

You can find a few of my photos here on flickr and videos here on youtube. Please be aware that I just take photos for fun, and the videos I’ve kept short on purpose!
