I hate this negative stigma people have towards Stereosonic and electronic dance music festivals in general in Australia. Not everyone that goes to these festivals are brain dead brusses jacked up on roids out to find a root and to fail at dancing cause theyre quads r too big There is a large group of people who are very intelligent and go there for the love of that music and how it makes them feel, i Think if anyone was gonna understand this it’d be people in the Tumblr rave community haha, i only saw one person with Kandi at stereo and one person gloving where all da ravers at?
Highlights of day 1 were Zedd’s speakers fucking up and him singing clarity terribly along with the crowd and the non stop 138 at Aly and Fila Vs John o Callaghan was crazy good.
Today was a good day, something really bad happened but we didn’t let it ruin our day and we ended up having more fun Day 2 then Day 1. Above and Beyond’s whole set was amazing as usual and finally got to hear them play sun in your eyes live. Bingo players and Axwell were surprisingly good and Armin was amazing to finish on. Kinda Ironic tho that Armin was like “are you ready for a state of trance”, then straight-up drops Adagio, not complaining tho i LOVE that shit :D.
Things i’ve learnt about Sydney people- most of them aren’t very friendly, nobody shuffles, nobody smokes, everybody wears hoodies…That is all.
“One of the more sobering realizations I’ve had as an adult is that there are two sides to the saying, “practice makes perfect.” You get better at everything you do, whether you like it or not. Playing piano? Sure. Rollerblading? Yup. But also lying, stealing, smoking, cheating on your partner, drinking, and all that crap that people do and regret. The more you do it, the more ingrained it becomes. The older you get, the harder it is to change.”—Robert Kieffer, 25 Habits to Break by Age 25 (via thekatediary)
