Hundreds at backyard festival

Oleh (Oli Cameron) performs at Feastock 2011 in Fea St, Pine Hill, on Saturday.

About 300 people attended the backyard music festival to listen to a line-up of 10 Dunedin bands, including Mountaineater, Idiot Prayer, Fea St Hustle and Ash and the Matadors.

Organiser Steve Marshall said there was no lack of bands keen to play and the rain had not deterred spectators, with many turning up in gumboots prepared for wet and muddy conditions.

Israeli backpacker Eden Nuriel (21) extended her visit to Dunedin to attend the music festival.

"It's pretty awesome." Mr Marshall said it was the third year the flat had hosted the festival.
