So the St Kilda Festival was on again.

Arriving just before dusk gave way to beautiful lighting to set the tone for some breathtaking shots, captured in the midst of enjoying all the best bits that the festival had to offer.

We loved the gigantic sculpture of the headphones made out of some 40,000 Big M cartons! Made by production company, Otto Empire, the project, entitled ‘Mphones’, was fully functional, playing all of Melbourne’s favourite tracks for the duration of the festival. At the launch of this marketing campaign, visitors could also watch a video showcasing how the project came to be.

But as always, the mood was high in the midst of the crowds of people and the energy was strong as adrenaline pumped through everyone. And as the evening wore, and the sun dipped, people started to mellow out, relax, chill, and unwind.

And as the sun set over St Kilda’s horizon, it cast a happy glow outlining the silhouettes of festival goers; and we called it a day on yet another success.

And you thought that was it?

C’mon, let’s get real.

With the St Kilda Festival, the sun’s absence doesn’t necessarily mean the party’s over. After all, it ain’t over til the fat lady sings, right? And while no fat lady was belting tunes, the night was still young, and beatboxers got the adrenaline pumping again. No one could not resist the beat! So up on our feet for one more dance before we finally called it a wrap; and that’s St Kilda Festival done and dusted!
