Sydney Festival time is upon us once again and this year the festival passed on its usual “Festival First Night” branding and introduced us to “Day One: An Opening in Three Acts”, which was a rather artistic way of telling us there would be three events happening in the Sydney CBD on the first day of Sydney Festival 2013. Though a much more downscaled approach to things (with the exception of rubber ducks), especially from the music point of view, the event felt just as big as ever, culminating in a huge party in the Domain.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers dominated day three of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on a day that boasted skilful sets from the likes of Alice Cooper, Australia's own The Temper Trap, The Roots and the long-awaited return of D’Angelo.

Barrio, the new club put in place by the Adelaide Festival this year, has generated a massive amount of publicity and an equally as massive amount of people down to Hajek Plaza each weekend since the beginning of this year’s festival season. It’s my first time at Barrio tonight, and I think that even if I wasn’t here to review, the atmosphere of the venue alone was enjoyable enough.
