Emilie Simon – one of my favourite French artists
The heavens opened once again for the annual So Frenchy So Chic music festival, at Werribee Mansion in Melbourne. I captured the French festivities for the eighth time, a selection of my photography was showcased on Broadsheet
Featuring an all-star Francoise line-up Emilie Simon, The Dø, La Femme and Francois & The Atlas Mountains
on stage, wowing the crowds on the grounds of the glorious Werribee Mansion with a scrumptious selection of food carts, including Cacao Fine Chocolates, Choo La Lah and Aritsan Gelato hitting the sweet spot.
A moment for #JeSuisCharlie
This year’s event was pointedly marked by the recent attacks on Charlie Hebdo, with a minute silence observed by the festival-goers and a ‘Je Suis Charlie’ tribute wall for to write personal messages.
