Went to Sydney Festival First Night at the weekend. Was lame for anyone under 25 or "looking for penis/vag".
Hyde Park was packed. The Domain was at capacity. Everyone was out to see world music. But it wasn't actually world music, it was music from different parts of the world no one understood.
I was bummed with the lineup at first, but i'm glad there was no crossover between this and any of the major festivals - unlike last year. A-Trak, DJ Mehdi, Busy P et al. were already in town in early 09 so were invited to First Night. This made 15-year-old ping-heads turn out in (w)hordes.
Sweet laser show in Hyde Park though. Looked like something from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
A series of these lasers beamed up into the trees and their green rays became spliced between leaves and branches. Accompanied by smoke machines and a tribal soundtrack, this presentation really took me to another place (wanting to pee so bad).
