Rhythm and Alps
Highlight: Dancing on the stump with Grace to young Tapz and meeting Charlie, Shazza, and his entourage.
Lowlight: The douchebag in the crowd that made me super down buzz
It’s New Year’s Eve!
This time last year I was in Waikawau bay and it was windy, cold and the rain was coming. I feel like the odds of having a fantastic night are much higher this year. I woke up at about 7 am and took the 500m walk to the worlds most disgusting portaloos. I then decided that being up at 7 am was too hard and went back to sleep till 10.
Today was a pretty chill day. We just sat around, ate and drank for the majority of it. Courtenay and I chilled in her campervan just chatting before we decided to get ready. That was probably the best part of the day. We were cranking the beats and just having good banter.
Courtney hooked me up with some dope braids and put in my hair rings for me. I loved my hair rings but it was seriously bloody freezing! I should have worn my damn puffer. Young Tapz was great (except when Courtenay took a can to the face thanks to some douchebag). I loved dancing on the giant tree stump with Grace, probably my highlight of the night.
The next few acts were pretty bad. Six 60 played the most down buzz set and after dealing with douchebags in the crowd, Mike and I bailed out towards the exit for the countdown. Then Six60 messed up the countdown and fireworks began as they were playing. Pretty lame New Year’s Eve. I am now in bed and ready for Dunedin tomorrow.
