Bless the poor, sweet organisers of Falls Festival after what surely must have been one absolutely hellish week.
The amount of scrambling done to secure an extremely last-minute venue change in Victoria, after bushfires ravaged the Lorne region over Christmas, must have been mind-boggling.
And so you can absolutely forgive them if one or two things have fallen through as a result.
So just as a heads up for any of you making the trek down to Mount Dundeed Estate near Geelong either tonight or tomorrow morning – please bring ice.
Y’know, the frozen water. Not the drug.
Punters today have apparently encountered a lack of the sub-zero drink-coolant at the site, more than likely due to losing a supplier thanks to the behemoth efforts involved in shifting an entire 16,000-odd person two-day music festival to an entirely new venue under 2 days before it begins.
And people have been letting Falls know about it via Facebook (some, more understanding and polite than others).
So let this be a warning to all you NYE party-types, unless you’re planning on pulling a ripping impersonation of a Campbell’s Soup ad…
…it might be wise to stop off at the ole’ servo on the way and snag a few bags of the cold stuff.
