POSTCODE 3333

26 years of collective know-how married with wild ambition means that sweet little parcel of land is now maturing into Everything We Hoped She Would Be.

HAPPY MEREDITH

All praise to Uncle Doug and the Supernatural Custodians, who have spent years refining The Sup’ into a purpose-built Underground Wonderland where needs are fully met so the focus can stay on all kinds of fun.

THE MORE THINGS STAY THE SAME

Meredith started in 1991 as a one-off blow out for a coupla hundred free-wheelin’ friends. So much fun was had that she just kept on keeping on.

LET’S ROLL

The supreme enjoyables that made that first one are still in abundance in 2017: One stage, BYO, free range camping under the stars, the No D!ckhe@ds Policy, a complete absence of commercial sponsorship, and the magical mix of music, nature and weird and wonderful humanity at its finest. Antennae tuned fine to the freakwency.

Speaking of which…

ALDOUS HARDING

Here is your princess
And here is the horizon

A new sort of magnetic. Beyond mere performance (https://youtu.be/PqnUL7HGvZ0) .

All my life (hey!) I’ve had to fight to stay
You were right, love takes time, hey, hey

The depth and breadth of Aldous Harding’s brave new world is astonishing.

Her first record, brimful with sublime folk and gothic tales, hinted at star potential. But this new one, Party, well… this could be anything. She is going for it, in every way. We’re right with her.

Intensely personal, universal, emotive, funny, dark, shape shifting. Every song a different planet, Aldous inhabiting each completely, pushing deeper and further into new realms, to the point where you wonder why more artists simply don’t go this far. It is frankly thrilling, absolutely committed and realised with the panache of a great. Different in each song, each video. Chameleon-like, yet always undeniably her.

The real rewards lie beyond first impressions. Her songs are… well… what to say? Sublime, beautiful, catchy, meditative…I’m throwing my hands up here. Sometimes cat-hair soft, embroidered minimal clarion calls, sometimes pulsing plaintive…ah gee there’s no point. My lord, it’s beautiful. I recommend you just watch her videos, listen to her songs, see her perform, and feel alive to the wild possibilities offered up by creative expression.

She has pushed us all further out into it, and made us float.

I broke my neck
Dancing to the edge of the world, babe

A new natural resource for a depleted planet.

IT’S IN THE SPACE BETWEEN THE NOTES THAT THE MAGIC HAPPENS

Attractions, not distractions. The Meredith Gift, Red Tree, Sunset Strip, Arch of Love, The Boot all just happened and kept happening. Not programmed or curated.

No arts application required. Start your own religion. Celebrated or private. Come as you are.
