Splendour In The Grass

This year Mr Simple marks it's third year at the annual event and we couldn't be happier.

We are again located in the heart of the retail district - the super cool Very Small Mall sharing the stage with Dr Martens, Levis as well as The Iconic who are presenting Hunter gumboots.

There are local acts Spell Design for the girls as well as a couple of other fun pop ups.

For the third year, we wanted to go beyond previous, so we bought a shipping container, decked out the inside, ripped off a wall and replaced it with glass and gave it a new lick of paint. Here are some rolling shots throughout the process.

If you are going to the festival, make sure that you pop in and say g'day!

Here is the transformation of the container all the way to the festival.
