Long Weekend In The Whitsundays.
A fan’s perspective.
Featuring The Living End And Phil Jamieson, May 21 to 25, 2022.
After months of rain on the East Coast of Australia, this amazing double bill proved to be the perfect winter escape to the tropical, peaceful surrounds of Daydream Island in the Whitsundays.
TLE on fire
The undeniable energy of a Living End performance was demonstrated second after their gig started. Suddenly those beanbags in the VIP area were no longer seats but more like beachballs as the crowd jumped to their feet to dance and sing up close to the stage. A nod from the boys on stage towards concerned security said it all, don’t worry – we got this!
Phil in full flight
Phil Jamieson lent his own special energy to his performances, sharing the full selection of classic tunes from Grinspoon as well as his more recent solo tracks.
Of course with so much talent and energy on the same island in the tropics – it was no surprise that stages were shared with Phil and the Living end combining for some mahem and tunes as the sun set behind the islands.
The Living End and Phil Jamieson both played 2 highly energetic sets over 3 magical evenings.
Every single fan who attended left mind blown and vowing to do everything they can to get over to the Maldives next year for the the next Music In Paradise event with The Living End.
Amazing experience & holiday!
What a great vibe & out of this world music experience with amazing performances from Phil & TLE. Met some wonderful people & enjoyed the beautiful peaceful resort surroundings. A must do to enjoy your favourite music in up close & personal performances with lasting memories.
From the location to the always helpful “Music in Paradise” staff we had the best time! Met some great people & a lot of laughs!
Love to do it again one day soon!
An unforgettable experience!
We had a wonderful time at the Phil Jamieson/The Living End ‘Surf Music In Paradise’ event at Daydream Island. The location was spectacular, the resort lovely and the concerts were fantastic. We met lots of great, like-minded people and now have new concert buddies both in our city and interstate!
