Well if there was ever a time to call an “Australia Day 2″ on a music festival this would be it! Its no real secret that FMF is plagued with some of the worse weather Queensland can dish out each year but the music gods severely lost out this year with constant rain all day and atrocious ground conditions – to the point one of the main stages was closed early in the day, but apart from that it was non stop music and pyrotechnics!

We’ve lost count of how many years Future has been under water, or mud as it were so when the previous day’s forecast said it was going to be partly cloudy we were skeptical but were really hoping for a good day. The day started with a bout of moderately heavy rain which laid a soggy foundation but thankfully held out for the better part of the day with only a few patches of light drizzle. Unfortunately it was too good to be true and as the headliners were beginning to take to the stage the weather man in the sky remembered what day it was and bucketed it down, but that didn’t stop us from getting some shots even with the thought of a dead flash courtesy of Soundwave Festival last week still fresh in my mind :-\
The sets however were nicely varied and LMFAO wasn’t heard -too- many times (though once is usually more than enough!) and dubstep seemed to be kept to its respective DJ’s. Highlights were definitely Aphex Twin with a lesson in how to play a broken beat set and Chase and Status with a mid afternoon stormer. PvD’s trance stage also provided a few sparks of interest to a genre I haven’t paid much attention to in a long time.
Check out the first batch of photos, more to come!
It seems what Mother Nature spared on Good Vibes this year, she lashed it on Future. Showers and rain the week prior as well as on the day left the venue more a boggy mess than anything that resembled a racecourse! Thankfully the music and production on display surpassed previous years (and festivals) with highlights of the day coming from industry forefathers like Leftfield, Chemical Brothers and Plastikman.
Keep an eye out for a bumper issue and full festival recap and our exclusive photos in this week’s 3D World Magazine.

Whoa! what a messy (of the dirty kind!) day that was! Contender for worse festival weather since Good Vibes 2009 but just as fun all the same.
Complete gallery coming soon.
