Thank you to Wadawurrung Elders for their powerful Welcome To Country and smoking ceremony, to the Nolan family, and of course Aunty Meredith for having me for this wild and special one-of-a-kind party.
MMF’19 was my eleventh one, and my twentieth time in the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre. I also haven’t been in two years and was very excited to be heading back to the ‘sup despite having completely torn my ACL (knee) a few weeks ago.
Although the skies were grey and Shania Twain’s Man I Feel Like a Woman! was the housekeeping song (I feel so womanly when I clean, don’t you?) – Meredith this year was a very sunny time. If you sold your ticket for an insanely cheap price, be warned, these photos may sting.
Wonderwall was pretty fun, not even ironically, and it was even more fun to watch Liam Gallagher hate the fact that this was the best time everyone had during his set. DJ Koze played Pick Up at the end of his insanely great set, bringing the Amphitheatre down – shout out to the woman who brought an Operator (He Doesn’t Call Me) phone prop. Jesswar was a boss, Julia Jacklin tugged on those heart strings and Logic1000 was a good dance time. Other highlights include Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, River Yarra, Christine Anu and someone bringing a cauliflower thing-on-a-stick.
My limited movement this year meant no treks up the hill for sunset or any campsite adventures, though I really hope you still enjoy this photo review as much as I did my twentieth time in the ‘sup. xox
