FasterLouder is heading to Splendour 2012!

Once again FL is heading north to bring you all the Splendour in the Grass action you could possibly handle. If it happens on stage, back stage or in a toilet at The Great Northern Hotel we will make sure you hear all about it. Across the course of three days team FL will recreate the full festival experience with live photos, daily reviews and lots of gossipy tweets from backstage.

Speaking of backstage, for the third year running acclaimed music photographer Daniel Boud will be inviting dozens of Splendour bands to pout, prance and look fierce in the FL Photo Studio.

To celebrate the festival’s return to its hometown this year’s studio theme will celebrate all things Byron: beaches, surfing, skating, hippies and Hawaiian shirts. We’ll be asking Bloc Party to zinc up, Kimbra to spark up and (if we get the guts up) Jack White to squeeze into some vintage budgie smugglers.

The photos will be exclusively posted on FL next week, but if you can’t wait that long then make sure you are following FL on Twitter and Facebook, because as well as keeping you up-to-date with all the weekend’s music action we will be posting sneak peeks of all the backstage antics.

Follow FL on Twitter here and on Facebook here.

And if you are lucky enough to be venturing North don’t forget that on Saturday night we are also throwing a FREE afterparty with Dune Rats and Drake The Fake at the Great Northern in Byron – all the details here.
