It was September 8 and Arno Faraji was the first to step onto the greenery clad stage, filled with potted plants and hanging vines.
The 2017 dux of Triple J’s Unearthed High, the vibes guy pulled in the crowd with hits like ‘130 Ego Jump’ and the new joint ‘Bless (What It’s Like)’.
After his sophomore EP Endless Conversations, released in March, Kwame followed and took the energy up a notch.
With the staples and new tunes, the set saw the crowd come together through the creative’s journey of life and relationships, almost an ode to Kanye and his 2008-2010 projects.
People climbed tables, shoulders and at one point, stage lights, to get a better view of the pocket rocket in red, Tkay Maidza.
From her debut singles such as ‘Switch Lanes’ and ‘M.O.B.’ to her night-owl ballad to being ‘prolly awake’, which saw her flip during her stage dive, her home crowd welcomed her into their clutches.
The set finished with ‘Flexin’.
The feature of Duckwrth (U.S) was exchanged with her support crew, the best send-off to the lively show.
She will now tour Australia for the rest of September and December will see her play The Falls Music and Arts Festival.
