Music festivals are massive in Aus, there's heaps.

I found a guide at http://www.news.com.au/entertainment...013883,00.html

What kind of music are you into? Let me know if you need a rundown on any Australian bands.

ah, thady went to my school. I think he was in my brother's year. you probably know a few of my friends by now! how weird. I guess you could have fun going out for a night to the workies and dingos, they're ok in moderation. It's just sad when you go there and know everyone and realise they're still going out to the same place every weekend and haven't really changed at all since we all finished school. and now all my friends' little brothers and sisters are starting to turn 18 so seeing them out is weird.
