Campus A Low Hum Festival Report

Three Days of music and mayhem set in an historical agricultural college outside of Bulls.

It's the fourth A Low Hum Festival, which has supported a legion of musicians who have since gone on to greater recognition- Liam Finn, Lawrence Arabia, and Connan Mockasin are all Camp A Low Hum alumni.

The exciting local line-up was this year expanded by a smattering of Australian bands, and other internationals including The Dodos, Jens Lekman, Polka Dot Dot Dot, Dent May, Dan Deacon and Daedelus.

Kirsten Johnstone enrols for a weekend of music and fun- in the gymnasium, in the barn, in the emptied out swimming pool stage...
