Splendour line up is HERE

Splendour line up is HERE

The Wombats at Splendour ’15 – Bianca Holderness OH LORDY HOW HAVE THEY DONE IT. After attending festivals consistently over the last 7 years, it’s getting pretty difficult for a line-up to include headliners that I haven’t seen before.  But here we are, on the happiest of Splendour announcement days, with an AMAZING range of artists to...
Falls Festival 2015-16

Falls Festival 2015-16

Photo via Falls Festival/David Bellamy Another year, another pilgrimage to the more than picturesque Marion Bay for Falls Festival. After four years I still really cannot believe anyone would bother being anywhere else when the clock ticks over. We arrived pretty late on Day One, but not late enough to miss the Mr G sing-a-long. A...

To the River – Eaux Claires 2015

I can honestly say that it had never once occurred to me that maybe one day I would like to visit Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Now, it has occurred to me on an almost daily basis that I most certainly want to go back. Last July, I spent a magical few days realising where some of...

North America Part 1: Governors Ball

Lucky me spent 2 months in North America earlier this year, travelling around more or less to accommodate various music festivals and events which culminated in catching over 100 acts while I was there. This is going to be a 4-part journal of tips and tricks for the major events we attended. If I’m not...

Wrapped: Listen Out 2015

A stellar line up and a new site to explore set the stage for the day at Listen Out in Melbourne this year. Getting through the gate just in time to see Monte and Harvey take the stage to put on a no-holds-barred Client Liaison show, we were pretty proud of ourselves for getting down “early”. A...

Meredith Music Festival 2015

Yes yes, the time is upon us to begin planning the pilgrimage to the Sup for Meredith Music Festival 2015. It’s a big one for Aunty this year, celebrating a whopping 25 years of singing, dancing and memory-making/unmaking in the beautiful amphitheatre full of beautiful people. The line up is out and it’s more eccentric...
Wrapped: Splendour 2015

Wrapped: Splendour 2015

The Wombats – Bianca Holderness Oh my days. I cannot believe Splendour in the Grass has come and gone again in a flash. But it does explain the shin bruises and the glitter in my hair… We caught marvellous sets from Mark Ronson and all of his friends, including GL, Kevin Parker and Theophilus London....

Listen Out 2015

Listen Out are trekking around the nation again this year, kicking off the early start of the festival season with a yet again outstanding line up of both local and international electronic and otherwise acts. Anyone who picked OutKast over Childish Gambino at Splendour in the Grass last year will have the chance to redeem...

Survived: Meredith Music Festival 2014

Photo via Kristoffer Paulsen @ Broadsheet Melbourne Yup. We cannot believe it’s over for another year, let alone that three weeks have passed since we were galavanting in the Sup with all our nearest and dearest. The sun has set on Meredith Music Festival 2014. The eclectic line up this year threw some curve balls...

Listen: Pilerats Records – Rat Pack #2

The western juggernaut that is Pilerats mustn’t sleep. Their second installment of Rat Pack, a compilation series that is linked to their in-house label, is back in a big way. Pilerats Records was launched in March, celebrations culminated in Rat Pack #1, probably one of the best compilations of international and local talent still up...
