“I think there’s a lot of value in being subliminal in a world that is the opposite, where everything is out there for us to see.”
Even if you had no idea what Justin Vernon’s soaring falsetto was on about, you knew exactly where he was coming from.

SPLENDOUR TICKET GRAB: EPIC FAIL
Every year, the panic to secure tickets to Splendour in the Grass is almost as incredible as the line-up itself. This year was no different but thousands of punters who tried to score tix with their Westpac (and Westpac affiliate) credit/debit cards were left high and dry thanks to a technical glitch at their bank. That’s gotta suck.
The promoters have decided to suspend all sales overnight to give those poor bastards a chance to get a ticket tomorrow. What a debacle. Guess we’d be pretty pissed off too if we missed out on seeing Coldplay Kanye, the Hives and more.
