Festival Review: Rhythm and Vines Day One - Waiohika Estate, Gisborne (29.12.14)

The mountainous Waiohika Estate is the site of New Zealand's biggest music festival Rhythm and Vines (affectionately known as RnV), now in it's 12th year and firmly established as one of the most eagerly anticipated events on New Zealand's calender. With headline slots from big international names like Drum & Bass maestro Netsky, UK pop-rockers Bastille, and EDM giants Chase & Status, plus the debut of the spectacular Arcadia Afterburner stage - imported from super-festival Glastonbury - RnV has managed to put together a music program that is perfectly in line with what people have come to expect each year - big, bold, and diverse.

New Music Video: Prodigy, Killer Mike, Action Bronson, and more "The Rap Monument" (2014)

Single Stream: Action Bronson & Danny Brown "Bad News" (2014)

Action Bronson and Danny Brown are two of the biggest and most distinctive personalities in the 'new gen' of emcees, so it's only right that these two pair up on a track for the next-gen GTA V. "Bad News" is laced with a hard-hitting beat by renowned hip hop DJ-producer The Alchemist, providing the two braggadocios rappers with a palette chaotic enough to complement their slick verses. Listen below.

Festival Review: Splendour In The Grass (Day Three) Ft. Ben Howard + Lily Allen + Phantogram - Sunday (27.07.14)

The final day of Splendour In The Grass 2014 saw some of the weekend's best performances, with each of the main stages capped of in very different ways. The Ampitheatre closed for 2014, sent off with a colourful performance from subversive pop star Lily Allen, and leaving us with the weekend's stand-out performances to reminisce on. Elsewhere the GW McLennan Tent was sent swaying to the warmth of Ben Howard (pictured), and the Mix-Up Stage saw it's first dose of slow-burning, artful electronica – as compared to the usual speaker-assaulting trend tracks – with Darkside, who brought a much more unexpected sound to the tent.

Splendour In The Grass Guide: A Hip-Hop Fan's Timetable

Splendour In The Grass has unofficially already begun, with many punters currently staking their claim in the campgrounds and setting the pace for the next couples of days. Thursday night will see Splendour punters party either in the venue with a slew of DJ's - including the boys from Halfway Crooks, Indian Summer, and Joyride (we hear Raph Dixon from Jackie Onassis might be pulling a surprise set as well)- or heading to town to attend the official pre-party at The Northern headlined by Interpol.

We bring you the second part of our gallery of the St Jerome's Laneway Festival from Adelaide this weekend, featuring the likes of Danny Brown, HAIM and CHVRCHES, the latter of which were only able to treat Adelaide to both an acapella and full delivery of "The Mother We Share". What a performance it was, though!

Live Review: Danny Brown + Earl Sweatshirt + Run The Jewels + Citizen Kay - Enmore Theatre (04.02.14)

Thankfully, hip hop tours are now commonplace in Australia; everyone from Odd Future to Masta Ace has made their way down here recently, putting on crowd-pleasing performances all across the nation. St Jermone's Laneway Festival has taken the rap tour a step further; this year's indie-fest enjoyed their strongest hip-hop line-up to date with Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, and Run The Jewels all proving to be highlights on the tour; so instead of promoters putting on three different headline sideshows, they put on one big concert at the Enmore Theatre, giving us all three acts back to back.

Festival Review: St Jermone's Laneway Festival - Sydney College of Arts (02.02.14)

Floral headpieces and loud button-ups painted the grounds of the Sydney College of Arts in Rozelle for St Jerome's Laneway Festival. It was the type of highly likeable festival atmosphere that it is all too rare nowadays, and even with the event selling out, those who wanted their space could easily seek out a private patch of grass where they could still enjoy the abundance of music on offer.
