CHRIS CALLAN // CONFESSIONS OF A SOUTHBOUND ADDICT

January 7th, 2011 by Matt

Let me begin with a confession. This was the first year I entered the Southbound festival without a bottle of rum down my dacks. Instead Aaron, John and I were armed with video cameras and microphones ready to capture the talent southbound had on offer.

I have always fantasized about having band play for me while I relaxed in a sauna and finally that fantasy was fulfilled! The Cold War Kids played to Hot Sweaty Kids with Ray Ban tan lines, but thankfully the festival didn’t feel as overcrowded as it has in previous years.

Refreshed by my sauna experience I was ready to take on another challenge from ‘Festival To Do” my list: ‘Have a fight with an old man, whilst wearing only my jocks’. How was I to know that the shower I was using was for yacht club members only? Luckily I was wearing my Captain Reds. Take that Old man and the Sea!

I had a lovely sleep cuddled up with my Cut & Paste crew, and thankfully I hadn’t seen Aaron’s Christmas special yet or I may have stayed with angry shower man.

I enjoyed Tijuana Cartel and Birds of Tokyo made Perth proud on the main stage, The Chemist were all forms of awesome and Split seconds played a heartwarming set.

Burning questions still remain though, like “Why the hell do I have to show you my access all area pass to get OUT of the VIP area? I understand why you need to see it going in but I’m leaving man!” – Thank you security.

See you next year – Look out for the air-conditioned Cut & Paste tent!
