Five Things From Mountain Sounds Festival 2018

Posted 19 February 2018 by Blog Author

Mountain Sounds Festival returned to the Central Coast this past weekend and it did not disappoint. With a two day line up stacked with fresh talent and not a cloud in the sky, it was peak conditions for non-stop partying.

With so many good vibes to get around it’s hard to pick one single top moment. After a lot of debate and trawling through our fuzzy memories, we managed to settle on five.

The early bird parties hardest

MSF is a two day festival but seasoned punters know to get there one night early if you want to maximise your partying. The GP DJs kicked off the festival mood with a set of huge grooves under the night air, while the Silent Disco offered a subtle opportunity to shake your ass.

Glitter bomb

Whilst the guys might have been rockin’ the twin set prints and the girls were all wrapped in boho styles, one trend ran supreme – glitter.

Love it or hate it, the sticky, sparkly stuff has become THE true trend of the festival season. It’s gonna be weeks now until you’re truly rid of it.

Hot Dub lay down the gauntlet

Closing out the first night, Hot Dub Time Machine proved just why a party DJ might be the best live act in the entire country. Armed with a set that traversed across decades of bangers and a stage show featuring confetti cannons and an insane light show, there’s no better way to close out Day one.

Day two was not to be outdone. The Preatures and Kirin J. Callinan brought slick guitar riffs and cowboy boots a plenty and they amped up the crowd. Surprise headliners Peking Duk proved the wait was worth it, absolutely crushing it with a display of pounding bass, candy crisp synths and freakin’ flamethrowers!

Stars on the ground

This year it seemed like there was as much to see on the festival grounds as there was on stage – the Central Coast was turning it on in style.

I.AM.GIA’s bold prints stood out amongst the traditional rock n’ roll black, whilst Neon Hart’s vintage prints added an air of classic to any outfit.

For the guys, they were doubling down. Double prints, double denim and (a lot of the time) double parked.

The Gang continue to rule

2017 wasn’t a one off thing for Gang of Youths, they’ve rolled into 2018 with the same momentum. With songs from their smash record Go Farther In Lightness at the ready they served up a feast of indie rock gold. Every note, every crash of drums and every hushed vocal sung back in full voice showed that Gang of Youths are still the kings of Aus rock.
