Monday March 9th saw Adelaide welcome mad-march including The Adelaide Fringe, Womad and now Future Music. Most of the older crowd enjoyed their public holiday day off with a day at the races, while the younger crowds formed at Adelaide Showgrounds for 'The Future Music Festival'. The tour making its final stop off in Adelaide where eager fans waited at the opening gates till 12pm, when the festival kicked off. When the gates opened fans made their way to either The Supanova, Future Live or Future Dome stages to watch the first set featuring Throttle, Bollocks and Senor Roar. Some fans waited for the crowds to clear before heading down, knowing the big name stars come on later in the day.
Adelaide was the only stage to welcome 15 year olds into their festival; other states had an 18 or older rule and making the event 15 and older only increased ticket sales for Adelaide. The first big name star to wow the audience was 'Robin Schulz,' whose gig ran from 2pm till 3pm and was crossed over with 'Darude' from 2:40pm till 3:40pm; a lot of fans moved between the two. Both had their crowds pumping and jumping to the beat.
At 3pm 'Timmy Trumpet' wowed the Supernova stage with his hits 'Freaks' and 'Infinity'.The crowd sang along as Trumpet turned up the beats. The Future Live stage filled up between 5pm-7pm when 'Hilltop Hoods' and 'Example' took to the stage while at the same time 'Martin Garrix' and 'Afrojack' were partying on The Supanova stage. Martin Garrix was great live, he tore up the stage with 'Animals', 'Wizard' and 'Tremors' and from what I heard, the 'Hilltop Hoods' were great. 'Afrojack' finished the tour with Adelaide and he finished big, playing fans favourites 'Turn Up the Speakers', 'Take Over Control' and 'Cant Stop Me'.
As the day continued, the lines at the bars grew, the lines at the toilets grew and the heat of the sunlight grew. By the end of the day anyone who wasn't wearing sunscreen was dancing to 'Avicii', 'Drake', 'The Prodigy', 'Steve Hart' or 'Gem Lang' with a terrible sunburn. I finished the night with a dose of 'Avicii' and was pleased to hear his older hits 'Hey Brother', 'Levels' and 'Wake me up' as well as some new ones too. Overall a great day out and a great end to The Future Music tour.
