Festival Review: Future Music Festival - Flemmington Racecourse, Melbourne (08.03.15)

Image captured by Perrie Cassie

In the wake of a year that should best be remembered as the festival killer, the management at Future Music must have at least been a bit anxious. Big Day Out was forced to skip the year due to losses, Soundwave Fest were forced to cut out not one but two whole cities from their line–up, and death was swift for the likes of Pyramid Rock, Harvest Fest and even Future Music Asia. Combine that with the fact that they had banked most of their money on one [non-recycled] major headliner who, despite having the draw of this being their first Australian tour, hadn’t released a full length album since mid–2013. So when Drake released his newest mixtape If You’re Reading this it’s Too Late, the festival probably saw it as much of a godsend as his fans did. But can a festival survive with one single [non-recycled] headliner?

When Drake was announced as the headliner for this year's Future Music Festival we all knew that there just had to be some sideshows. It's his first time down in Australia, and demand for Drake is only getting higher. The length we waited for him to perform in Australia was rewarded with extra effort on everyone's behalf, and a set list that is far better (and longer) than the recent ones he has been performing. But first, let's start at the beginning.

Sydney hip hop crew One Day (DJs) announced as support for Drake's Australian tour

As a collective, Sydney's One Day have already had a massive year in 2014, and now things are picking up even faster as the crew have been announced, in DJ mode, as support for Canadian emcee Drake on his Future Music Festival sideshows. In addition to the inner-west mob - three of the seven members - Drake will also be bringing along fellow Canadian hip-hop artist P Reign and already-announced 2 Chainz.

Album Review: A$AP Rocky - Long.Live.A$AP (2012 LP)

Armed with screwed up hooks, a trendy flow, and enough bravado to go toe-to-toe with the likes of T.I and Jay-Z, the 24 year old Harlem representer A$AP Rocky has been set for stardom ever since his 2011 mixtape LoveLoveA$AP was met with acclaim. With a highly-publicised multi-million dollar record deal backing him, Rocky’s overdue debut LP LongLiveA$AP surpasses anything I could have expected from the young emcee, placing A$AP at the top of the new generation with fellow young guns J Cole and Kendrick Lamar.
