Muddy marvels at showground

GUMBOOTS were a must have fashion accessory as fans flocked to the Coffs Harbour Showground last night for the Across the Great Divide show.

The much-awaited event, featuring two Aussie supergroups Powderfinger and Silverchair was still rocking well into the night, despite the pools of water and mud all over the grounds.

Organisers had mput down woodchips in an attempt to soak up the huge puddles of Coffs' persistent wet weather.

But music fans from all over the north coast still rocked at the muddy marvels on stage.

It was without the doubt the wettest event of the two group's tour so far, but organisers and the thousands of party-goers were still calling it a great success.
