So I heard Perth has shafted the Soundwave and Big Day Out Festivals because of cost, and the fact Perth has too many festivals going on regardless for a place with such a small population - eg Laneway, Southbound, Future Music, Fringe and The Perth Festival
However, removing Soundwave and the Big Day Out in many ways is a step in the wrong direction, not when both those festivals are still going on the east coast, what is left there for young people to do in Perth? It looks all set up for a middle aged persons with kids to grow old in
The only thing left to gawk at is the big giant construction rejoining Northbridge to the city for the first time in several generations, but even that plan is flawed as the other side of the Perth link area has a crosswalk - modern cbds dont have crosswalks or railway crossings! Couple that with unsightly power and rail lines. It just shows Perth takes 2 steps forwards and then 2 steps backs and while its crazy to see all these construction projects on at once, it also showcases the city of Perth's indecision married with the lack of vision for the city. With one area developed and with the other side of the Perth railway cut off by those power and rail lines, it could lead to urban decay in that Pier St/ Mciver station area.
Also McIver Station is a very scary place to go to at night
Having said that, Im not there and its none of my concern, but dont say I told you so when eventual problems arise from the Urban decay that can arise out of the neglect
