Bad Friday Made for a Good Friday


Photos and words by Dougal Gorman

Kicking off the Easter long weekend in true inner-west style, the tenth annual Bad Friday Festival returned to Marrickville with their best lineup yet.

Bucket hats, shitty party shirts and speed dealer sunnies were out in full force. Speaking of full force, with the Nanny State’s new live music restrictions now in place, the police presence was certainly felt throughout the day.

In-between the madness onstage, we managed to catch some of the artists for portraits. Shout out to Crocodylus, Holiday Sidewinder, Scabz, Yibby, Lime Cordiale, Haiku Hands, Nina Las Vegas and Johnny Hunter for taking the time to hang out, and of course to Bad Friday Festival for having us. All in all, Good Friday was a good Friday and Bad Friday wasn’t bad at all. Confused? Me too.

Here are the photos.
