Despite being a leap year and having an extra day, February made sure to make the most out of it’s special trait in 2012 by making sure it wasn’t to be forgotten.
After the Red Horse Beer Grand Finals, I was preparing to fly to Singapore for Kasabian (you probably read that before) and to work on this year’s Laneway Festival. I was supposed to shoot during the first one, but last minute I couldn’t fly because it was only two months since the demise of NU107 and our grieving wasn’t complete. Our brains we’re all over the place and I passed on the chance to experience a mini-Glastonbury with heavy rain and so much mud!
I came prepared this year, but it rained for like 2 minutes…. It would have been a really stressful but memorable experience (trying to protect our equipment haha)
To be in the crew side of renowned festivals like this isn’t an easy task. A lot of friends whom I bumped into at the festival said, “Oh you’re so lucky!” Really, it’s a lot of hard work.
Good thing I was part of a really really awesome team headed by Aloysius Lim together with Glenn Yong (or as he’d like to be called by his stage name Glenn Taubenfeld), the admirable artist Dawn Chua and the shy but slick Ryan Chang.
While everyone had their booklets signed by the artists, I had it signed by my teammates like a year book!
