The Festy is all about music certainly, but defintely some of the best microbrews from around the area!
You seldom see her in front of the camera, but NCL Photographer, Hayley Osborne, wanted this moment captured! Her brother Scott snapped this picture right after Hayley scaled to the top of DBBC's roof to get the shots down below. Little did we know Hayley had to overcome a little fear of climbing up on buildings! Yikes!
Hayley's brother Scott, checks out the view from the roof while Hayley snaps away at pictures down below.

In addition to music, this youngster took a stab at the rock climbing wall.
Part of The Festy Experience is being able to camp on site for two nights. Over 1000 campers pitched a tent or RV for the weekend.
