Fat Freddy’s Drop @ Boomtown Fair, Aug. 14th, 2016


The Lion’s Den is possibly the stage with the largest capacity at Boomtown, easily fitting 20,000 people in a natural bowl which affords everyone there a view of the bands.  Fat Freddy’s Drop played there in the early evening on Sunday night, opening up with “Midnight Marauders”.  I enjoyed their show, partly because their tendency towards longer tracks means a 3-song limit on a shoot lasts half-an-hour; partly because it seemed like a perfectly trippy way to round off a weekend of glorious weather, music and performances; and partly because I missed them when they played in Tokyo last year, so it was the perfect opportunity to catch this New Zealand band in action.
