Mr Padoof and I looked forward to Foreshore, the lineup offered some great acts, but I was so disappointed by the antics of the crowd and would never do it again.
I really hope that the youth of today is not represented by the majority who attended; they were mostly obnoxious and rude and seemed intent on getting as drunk as they possibly could. There was no respect for the venue with litter being thrown down without a care for the surroundings – we were right in front of Old Parliament House and other cultural institutions Canberra is proud to have on offer, it was really upsetting to see the little regard that was displayed to being in such a lovely location. Perhaps the ACT Government should consider EPIC as a more suitable location in future?
I don’t know…maybe I’m just out of touch (don’t tell my teenage children!) and should stick to buying cd’s.
[Ed – It should be noted the Foreshore organisers go to considerable effort to clean up after their patrons]
