A perfect day for a birthday bash, it was a lovely sunshine-y day, smiling faces everywhere as I entered the Riverstage venue.
Lovely green grassy slopes leading to the stage area and I was happy and excited for it all to start.
It was a case of grabbing some drinks and food and finding a green grass spot to settle down for the event.
The music line up was fantastic and each act seemed to have its own vibe and fan base.
Confidence Man had everyone dancing with their high energy music and Cub Sport fans just enjoyed the vocal perfection of the performance.
But for me, the absolute highlight of the day was DJ Tom Loud’s “dance through the decades’ audio-visual party.
From the moment the “Hot Dub Time Machine” started, all the crowd were motivated to just get up, join in the party and dance.
Considering the first year of music was from 1956, it pretty much ensured that every age group was catered for.
DJ Tom was so much fun, had so much energy that it was impossible to ignore his call for us all to “PARTY”.
There was a brass band of three guys who provided extra “oomph”.
When his act started, I was so cold that I was wrapped in a blanket but then I was powerless to resist his call to “get up and party”.
I was there with my husband and teenage daughter and the three of us danced all night to the very end.
To be able to dance in the open air with so many happy faces was just so much fun.
Next year for sure I will be there.
