The team behind Psych Night debuted the first Endless Daze festival at the Silwerstroom Resort up the west coast back in November. The venue was lovely and the small size of the festival meant great facilities (camping right next to the festival area, ablution blocks with toilets, showers and even baths, and the beach a short walk from the main area) for everyone.
The fact that there was also only one stage (well, one and a half if you count the small acoustic stage on Saturday morning) put the focus back on the music in a way that other festivals just aren’t able to do. In this way Endless Daze felt a lot more like one big gig than a festival to me.
Here are some shots from the Friday.
Probably my favourite moment from the festival was heading over to the beach to watch the sunset. There were a few small groups on the hill watching the sea and it was all quite nice but nothing particularly special. While I had my eye to the viewfinder I heard an unexpected sound, applause…the hippies on the hill were clapping. For the sunset. I really expected someone to call for an encore but sadly they didn’t.
That little scene pretty much summed up the festival crowd for me…
