Supertop was rockin'

IT APPEARED many were struck down with a case of Splendour in the Grass fatigue with a noticeable shortage of midday revellers on day two of the three-day festival.

Another glorious day was promised for Saturday and this time delivered, with nothing but blue skies and hip tunes to keep the sold out crowd in good spirits.

Gold Coast bad boys Bleeding Knees Club opened on the Supertop.

Their surf pop antics enticed three young girls on stage to sing the chorus of Girls Can Do Anything.

Indie boy bands continued to be a running theme.

Dublin charmers The Cast of Cheers and energetic Brisbane four-piece Last Dinosaurs played to swelling crowds at the Supertop.

The GW McLennan tent kicked off with local lads Lifeline followed by a set of thoughtful indie pop from Mosman Alder.

Here We Go Magic were a tad gloomy, looking every inch the uber-cool New York outfit.

The Mix Up tent was again party central with Tijuana Cartel carving it up with their global dance beats.

New-to-the-scene hipsters Friends injected an R'n'B vibe to their set of sexy tunes.

Sultry lead singer Samantha Urbani flaunted a Smashing Pumpkins T-shirt given to her by a fan. Tame Impala's psychedelic jams wowed the Supertop with numbers such as Lucidity.

Many could be forgiven for thinking new sensation Lana Del Rey and her Hollywood sad-core tunes were a flop as people were exiting the GW McLennan tent en masse.

Of course, a very large portion of the 17,000 attendees were there to see English band Bloc Party. Full to the brim, the Supertop heaved with ecstatic fans screaming along to dance-pop singles Banquet and One More Chance.
