Blessed with fabulous weather, the Teneriffe Festival proved hugely successful again yesterday with people packing the peninsula for food, drink, market stalls, displays, heritage tours, kids activities, entertainment and live music throughout the day. The musical performances across four stages were great with the likes of Sahara Beck, Babaganouj and Mosman Alder proving particularly popular with punters. Other musical highlights included Creature Kind, Wayward Smith, Cheap Fakes and Moses Gunn Collective, while The Jensens entertained in more ways than one with a bass player who is absolutely hilarious and a collection of moustaches so inelegant that they must surely be ironic.
Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day, even if moving from stage to stage proved problematic at times due to the sheer crowd numbers in what is a somewhat confined space. Even Olympic gold medal-winning sisters Cate and Bronte Campbell were spotted amongst the throngs.
Unfortunately, enjoyment of what is one of my favourite annual Brisbane events was dampened somewhat by the theft of a camera late in the day that has prevented Mr C Media from providing any photographic coverage of the festivities.
