Byron Bay treated Splendour in the Grass punters to three days of immaculate sunshine, but the storms came nevertheless.
Wolfmother performed an early afternoon amphitheatre set with a comfortable energy that suggested they simply left their amps on stage in 2008 and just plugged right back in, saying, “Yup, this is us.” They knew what people were there to see, blasting through a hit-filled set with grins affixed to their faces throughout. Thankfully, Andrew Stockdale has kept faithful to the afro of his youth; I feel Splendour audiences weren’t quite ready for the short-back-and-sides look from a guy who sings about white unicorns and implores them to “see the mind’s eye”.
Fidlar were youthful and punkish, clearing the moshpit of dudes for a “girls to the front” moment that was only slightly cheapened by the fact they chose the shortest, most toothless song in their set to apply this rule to.
