St Kilda Festival: Too Dry?

By  |  0 Comments

Though I am well aware of the myriad ills associated with alcohol use/abuse, I find equally unsavoury the poe-faced, puritanical, holier-than-thou smugness behind the Festival’s recent billboard boasts/threats about its ”dryness”.

Maybe a dry festival is essential, I don’t know. Perhaps in this day and age when everyone is so crushed and depressed that they can’t face life except through an alcoholic haze. But don’t make it your main claim to fame, unless you want to include bland, boring and anodyne in your USPs as well. They would be equally accurate!
