#6 Soundwave Sydney
SOIA didn’t arrive until lunchtime, so after meeting Lou and having a catch up we’d missed Gallows.
It was so great to see Shai Hulud after missing them in LA. They started with For The World, and ended with Misanthropy Pure, which couldn’t have been a better beginning and end for me!
Madball RULED. The sun came out, and then it rained, but I couldn’t be happier and it reminded me why I love this band so much. I was so stoked they played Look My Way!
We then ran to see Cancer Bats quickly, and then back to stage 6 for Sick Of It All. They were so much fun as always, and it was nice to see them with Stace.
My legs at this point were feeling like jelly, but we made it back to see the end of Polar Bear Club. It wasn’t super packed for them, and there was a gap where a giant mud puddle was, which meant I could see! They ended with The Redder The Better which was a REALLY nice surprise.
We also watched Fucked Up, while stuffing our faces. The site felt really deserted, and as we got to the main stages, I realised where all the people were! We watched Blink 182 from the seats, but felt disconnected as we were so far away, and I had just spent the last 3/4 hours having the time of my life and dancing about, I was pretty tired.
I thought to myself so many times, I fucking love this band. Really great day.
