Sweltering conditions at yesterday's Breath of Life festival had afternoon headline act Dizzee Rascal seeking a reprieve from the heat - and while the temperature later cooled, Birds of Tokyo kept the heat on.
More than 10,000 festival-goers partied all day long to an international line-up of acts at Launceston's Inveresk showgrounds.
Water bottles were the weapon of choice for mosh-pit warriors, who sprayed, squirted and doused each other amid the heat of the mass during his set.
''I tell you wha' man, it's hot up here innit?'' Rascal said, looking down on the crowd.
Although the crowd was bouncing, Rascal littered breaks between songs with safety requests, and eventually cut a song short after a fight broke out.
''Calm down man, I know everyone's having a good time, but you've proved your point,'' he said.
''Get him out of there - there's blood all over him.''
But it wasn't all bad behaviour, with a sea of smiles and energy washing through the Inveresk grounds.
Techno tent morph suits, matching hat clans and animal-styled ``onesie'' groups happily grooved their way through the crowd.
Despite the mix of hot weather and alcohol, Tasmania Police Sergeant Scott McKinnell said only a moderate police presence was require.
''There's a presence sufficient enough to deal with anything that may occur,'' Sergeant McKinnell said late in the afternoon.
''There's been no significant issues, except for a few minor cases with underage drinkers, but overall we're happy with the crowd's behaviour.''
Bands to hit the main stage After Dizzee Rascal included Flume and Birds of Tokyo, which some fans rated as brilliant, and 360 and Bliss N Eso finished what many believed was a top-class festival.
The event was held in support of Lung Foundation Australia.
