For those of us on the other side of the globe, we can enjoy the ACL live stream from the comfort of home - here are five acts we're keen to see do their thing.

Sir Paul McCartney made his Lollapalooza debut last night, helping kick off the iconic three day event in Chicago with a massive two hour, 15 minute set that saw the legendary artist delve into his catalogue of Wings and Beatles songs that had the tens of thousands of fans singing along from start to finish. He even had Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes singing along, when she joined the Beatle for a rendition of "Get Back" on both vocals and guitar, taking on a verse for herself with a gusto that we're sure would have contradicted the "pinch me, is this actually happening?" feeling anyone would experience in that situation.

Our 20 Favourite Records of 2015...So Far (Part Two: 10-1)

Yesterday, we brought you the first batch of 2015-released albums that AU contributors ranked as the best of the year so far. A great blend of Australian and international releases, the list reflected a wide range of music tastes and killer tunes that obviously have struck a chord with music fans globally. Today, we continue with the countdown, naming the ten records that have stood out above the rest as some of the best albums of 2015. Sure, we're only at the midway point of the year, but no doubt, some of these artists are probably going to be making a few end-of-year wrap ups too. So, from #10 through #1...

The ten artists you can't miss at The Great Escape

We're about 48 hours from everything kicking off at the annual music festival and conference held in Brighton, England, The Great Escape (TGE), which we're excited to be bringing you live and direct coverage from for the first time since 2012. Like similar events - SXSW, the recent Canadian Music Week or BigSound closer to home, there are too many bands to try and catch. In the case of TGE, we're talking hundreds. Over the past few weeks, we've been pouring through the list and trying to pick out the bands worth your time. Some we've seen before and can vouch for their excellence, and others we'll be planning to experience for the first time at the festival. And whether you're there or not, these are the artists you should listen to, artists you should see and experience for yourself (presented here in no particular order).

Album Review: Alabama Shakes - Sound & Color (2015 LP)

As the best thing to come out of Alabama since Forrest Gump, Alabama Shakes have had many expectations placed upon them since their formation in 2009. Tearing stages and festivals apart, while receiving endless praise for their debut album Boys & Girls, the four piece lead by front-woman Brittany Howard return with Sound & Color, a much more coherent and heavier release. While maintaining the honest howling vocals of Howard that were present on their debut, Sound & Color is a much grungier and progressive LP, that is both true to their roots while showcasing the path they are currently heading down.

Tkay Maidza, KLO, Tora, The Cribs, Gaz Coombes and many more join The Great Escape Festival lineup for 2015

Brighton, UK based Festival The Great Escape has completed its 2015 lineup. Adding to the likes of Alabama Shakes, Kate Tempest and Skepta and JME are The Cribs, frontman turned soloist Gaz Coombes, Australian singer/rapper Tkay Maidza, Afrikan Boy, Hyena, Tropics, Hollysiz Australian Electro Pop outfit KLO, Tora and more.

Impressive list of Australian artists including APES & REMi UK-bound for The Great Escape!

For many bands around the world, earning a spot on The Great Escape Festival in the UK means a great deal - you've got a huge load of exposure, the potential to discover new bands and of course, the opportunity to be discovered. In its 10th year in 2015, the Brighton-based festival releases a stellar line up of bands from around the globe, all set to descend on the site in May for what is touted as Europe's leading festival for new music.

Alabama Shakes confirm their only Sydney headline show!

Bluesfest names The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes and more on first artist announcement for 2015!

Bluesfest returns to Byron Bay over the Easter Weekend next year for its 26th year! 26! Worthy of a party, we're sure. As usual, the country's premier blues and roots festival has turned up with their A-Game strong, with their first artist announcement set to excite both the long-time Bluesfest attendees and those still tossing up what they're planning on doing during the April long weekend. Without further ado...

Festival Review: New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2014 - Part Three ft. Alabama Shakes + Arcade Fire + Christina Aguilera & More!

We've already covered some of the smaller stages at the event, as well as our discoveries, but as for the rest, Bruce Springsteen wasn't the only highlight among the main stages during the three days I was at the festival.
