The biggest festival fuck up of all time in Australia without a doubt. Two guys under the age of 25, now owing debts of over $500,000 due to what they hoped would be the festival of their lifetimes. They promised the ultimate – no lines, a beer tent, cheap food etc. Unfortunately, their dream proved too big and too expensive.
Not only did the day not run accordingly, many bands didn't show up on stages due to a lack of communication and the beer supplies ran out on the first day, but the expenses for such a big event were clearly underestimated. The Gray Brothers, 20 and 23 years of age have since had their cars repossessed, both have claimed bankruptcy and immediately following the epic festival failure, they had no home to live in.
The boys have bailed to Queensland (who can blame them) where they are still hunted like rabbits, but honestly, who would allow two young lads to pull off such an stint when they claimed numerous times that “Don’t worry, Mum’s backing us.” If Tristan and Aaron are out there, we hope you’re slowly regaining your dignity!
