Behind The Scenes: Phillip Island

Well, wasn’t Phillip Island a treat? Drama, controversy and more drama… Not exactly the island paradise we thought we were in for but hey, at least some people enjoyed themselves!

We’re lucky to have a resident photographer on hand to capture all of the exciting (and tense) moments behind the scenes, here we go:

They might look like pit crew, but they’re actually the back-up dancers for J-Dub and SVG’s first live show.

Die-hard fan Tom Hollywood said he couldn’t be more excited to finally see J-Van And The Pit Crew live in concert: “I’ve been queuing up since 5:42am yesterday morning. To see them in the flesh is a dream come true.”
