SUMMADAYZE ft The Chemical Brothers/ M.I.A/ Mark Ronson/ Fedde Le Grand and morePaterson StadiumSunday, January 6, 2013
Given the baking hot day that was last Sunday, it was a blessing in disguise that crowd numbers weren’t huge at Summadayze as the last thing a sweaty body needed was rubbing up against another sweaty body. It also meant the chances of dehydration were kept to a minimum as bar queues... well, they didn’t really exist. It took a while to understand the layout of the festival given the movement of the event from Claremont Showground to Paterson Stadium in Subiaco and there was a sense of organised chaos as party revellers shuffled about inside the stadium trying to make sense of where each stage was located. The main stage, located on the stadium ground itself, drew the biggest crowd all day.

Accompanied by partner-in-crime producer and instrumentalist James Mangohig, Sietta were the perfect support act for Aussie party-starters, Melbourne hip hop act TZU.
