Over the past weekend Ja and I were lucky enough to land some complimentary tickets to Big Day out (BDO) on the Gold Coast. Ja wrangled the afternoon off work and we headed down to catch some live music on a hot Sunday afternoon! As soon as we arrived, we headed to grab a quick bite to eat and then saw Childish Gambino. We've been big fans of Donald Glover's work both in the TV show Community and as Childish Gambino, so it was great to see him live. He killed it! After that we wandered and sat for a bit, saw some of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs before heading to see Foals. Without a doubt my highlight of the day. Back in 2011 I used to drive across the Story Bridge to go and visit Ja whilst listening to Spanish Sahara with the windows down, it turned into something that we did quite a bit and even do sometimes still now when driving places. The song just epitomised freedom for me and to finally hear it live was amazing and made my heart soar. After that we grabbed some drinks and headed to see Kaskade, Animal Collective and the Bloody Beetroots (live). On our way to see Kaskade we managed to grab the end of the 360 set hearing "Run Alone" which was actually amazing. Above are the pictures we snapped during the afternoon/evening. Nothing better than a Summer festival!
