This Park Acoustics was geared up to be a large event. The line-up was jam-packed with favourites like Jack Parow, ShortStraw and FreshlyGround. I was particularly looking forward to performances by John Wizards and FreshlyGround but as fate would have it I missed both. A late attendance meant that I missed John Wizards but also escaped the searing heat which had many people passed out in any shade that they could find. I got to watch people play at the watering station and might have had to dodge a few errant jets of water. My sidestepping was all in vain as the hot day created a great storm which interrupted FreshlyGround’s set. There were the only group I would have put my afro and camera’s so-called waterproof abilities on the line for but they had to abandon the stage two songs in. It was still such a fun day and a fitting end to Park Acoustics for 2014. I believe that the party carried on with the storm and people left satisfied.
Deji and Lebogang assisted with some of these portraits on the day, so I really hope that you enjoy this photo series. It was fun to make and fun to experience. I tried to find a different Park Acoustics narrative for you to see.
