Muddy good time at Gibbston

A little mud didn't get in the way of people having a good time at this year’s Gibbston Valley Winery Summer Concert and video has emerged of a few people making the most of it.

A large crowd donned their plastic ponchos and umbrella hats to brave the wet weather at the ninth annual event, held at Gibbston a alley near Queenstown.

The crowd’s turned out to see headliners Toni Childs, James Reyne (Australian Crawl) (Plus Band) & Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), and Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson.

Video posted on social media showed at least a few concertgoers made the most of the mud by sliding past other concertgoers as they cheered on.

The guy who slid down the bank then crashed and ended up with his ankle and foot poking sideways probably will have trouble watching that video.
