December 10th 2017 – Your Paradise 2017: Plantation Resort, Fiji.
up at 4:30am in Adelaide to depart for fiji with Hot Dub Time Machine to play at Your Paradise Festival in FIJI, I could think of worse things to have to set my alarm for.
We roll into fiji at 5:00pm local time and are greeted by a dude with our names on a piece of paper, he leads us into a van and then directly onto a heli pad where our transfer awaits, Touch Sensitive is also on the same transfer. The rains roll past but the weather is warm and sweaty, perfect tropical weather.
We pull our luggage off the heli and make a small walk to our accommodation, everyone is in the pool drinking beers, they’ve been partying all day on a boat with the OWSLA all stars, people are ready to party!
Touch sensitive is warming up the main stage followed by Mija then Carmada. The OWSLA all stars (Jauz, What So Not, Justin Martin and Carmada) get the crowd pumping right before HOt Dub Time Machine takes to the stage.
The set is intimate but full of energy, the crowd are hugely receptive to hear some throwback tunes and it’s the perfect way to close out the main stage at the festival.
we head to the kick ons after the set where Mija is slaying the tunes to a late night audience, we have the Cloud 9 floating party the next day so I call it a night, rest is needed for a big day..
