The lineup for Laneway 2014's pretty damn good, which was why I was so eagerly counting down to Jan 25th. The highlights for me were definitely Haim, Chvrches and Daughter. And plus, they were scheduled to play right after one another so that makes 3-hours of intense fangirling for me hahaha.
I was all ready for the festival until I realised I had a make-up class for my linguistic module on the same day (!) because of CNY. My class ends at 11.30am (which is also the time the gates open I think) and Vance Joy is opening the festival at 12.50pm, which I didn't want to miss at all because I like his music. So I was seriously considering skipping the class, I mean c'mon, it starts at 8.30am and I live in the east! But everyone told me to be a good student so yeap, I went in the end. *self-pat on the back* Managed to make it right on time, well almost, he started playing when I was at the gate/entrance. BUT, the merchandise for Haim got sold out already and I really liked the tank top. :(
Anyway, after Vance Joy's set ended, Butty (my BFF) and I went to put some grub in our bellies first before exploring the grounds.
Got ourselves temporary tattoos from the H&M booth cos the kid in me wants candy floss lol. I freakin' love candy floss! But hey, the tattoos were cheap thrills for the both of us cos we both wanna get tattoos but our parents are not entirely cool with that so....yeah, these would suffice, for now.
And plus, check out this one! Lyrics from one of my favourite Daughter songs - Youth. Love it! I still have in on my arm hehehe.
Happy me with my fluffy, pink cloud of saccharine sweet goodness hahahaha.
And of course we got ourselves popsicles! These over ice-cream/gelato anytime!
And they were followed by Haim and Chvrches, which I gave up trying to take photos of cos the crowd was quite immovable! And people were moving and swaying (of course), so all the pictures turned out blur so I gave up haha.
Ending the night with a group shot.
One thing I like about gigs is that you meet new people and you make new friends. They can be either a friend's friend or a complete stranger who was just standing beside you. It's nice really.
Now, I have Empire of The Sun, Lucy Rose and Jamie Cullum to look forward to in February and March! *happy dance*
