SPLENDOUR SPLENDOUR SPLENDOUR.

The whole Bolster team went up to Splendour for our annual team retreat in Byron Bay last week. Three days at the festival. Four days of relaxing/trying to do work/getting frustrated by the total lack of internet in coastal New South Wales.

Here’s a li’l wrap of my #blstrretreat highlights:

  1. Chilling with the Bolster team in beautiful Ocean Shores (evidence: above photo)
  2. Booking (and paying) for a massage ten minutes into the future, and somehow getting distracted by Peking Duk within those ten minutes and completely missing my massage
  3. Really enjoying Peking Duk’s ridiculous DJ/live/DJ set (much talent, what babes, etc. etc.)
  4. Re-booking my massage for the next day and missing it again
  5. Making up for it by getting a free massage at the Moshtix Splendour party
  6. Having the same taste in food as Sigur Ros
  7. Trying to act cool meeting Father John Misty (while internally not being so cool)
  8. Getting the one room in our Airbnb that looked like a brothel (hint: purple everything plus a very stained couch)
  9. Being blown away by The xx
  10. Being even more blown away by Josh Homme and friends
  11. Finding a kitchenette on the site and treating myself to peanut butter toast all festival-long
  12. Getting to watch LCD Soundsystem side of stage with a cup of Lempsip
  13. Taking some really creepy portraits of my co-workers at the airport.

On a more serious note, it was also really awesome working on the Splendour advertising campaign from start to finish this year, and being able to see the whole festival in action. Until 2018, Splendour <3
