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!

New Found Glory - Soundwave 2011

So what do you do when you have your first festival off from shooting in years? You run amok with your friends that’s what!

It took a little getting used to, not lugging my gear around and not having to be somewhere 10 minutes ago, but a quick jump around to Millencolin and Sum 41 settles things down for me to camp out pretty much all day at stage 3 for a plethora of punk and ska.

Highlights of that stage were New Found Glory (complete with their own team apparel), Pennywise and Less than Jake. Unfortunately, due to those inconsiderate bastards Social Distortion, deciding to overrun their mid afternoon set by 15min meant all subsequent acts were cut short to meet the 10pm curfew. Not too bad if they had hour long sets but they were all already at a very “punk” 40 minutes.

Even though it was my day off, I still managed a couple happy days through out the day. Check out the Soundwave Festival 2011 Brisbane photos here

What a day of nostalgic fun! The 90s was definitely the best decade for music and the headlining acts proved they still had it!
