PICTURE GALLERY: Rain doesn’t stop crowds smiling on first day of Airbourne

Although rain stopped any flights from taking off on the first day of Airbourne 2015, crowds still turned up with smiles on their faces.

Visitors headed to the Western Lawns to enjoy the many attractions taking place on the ground, and while the grass may have been soggy, spirits were not dampened by the treacherous weather.
