Photo Gallery: OutsideIn Festival - Manning Bar, Sydney (26.09.15)

The OutsideIn Festival returned to Sydney on Saturday, filling the Manning bar with a diverse range of local and international artists from electronica to hip hop. Some of the highlights included Sable, Cosmo's Midnight, Devin The Dude, Pender Street Steppers, Africa HiTech and headlining the main stage - Big K.R.I.T. It was an incredible day. Check out photos from the event here:

Big Daddy Kane, Ratatat, Julia Holter, Briggs & more confirmed for the 25th Meredith Music Festival!

You know how you have that family member who generally stands out as being the coolest? The Aunty who sneaks you alcohol at parties when you're underage or the one who lets you stay up late? Either way, she's the one whose house you always looked forward to going to because no matter what, you knew good times were ahead. Well, when it comes to the Meredith Music Festival, Aunty has delivered again, with a line up that has people around the country getting keen to head to the 'Sup once more this December. Party on.

Live Review: Chet Faker + Roland Tings + GL - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (28.02.15)

A mix of mellow tones and synth-laden flow conducted the night, settling the wide-eyed crowd deep into their seats and cementing upright feet to the wood-covered floor. Sold out wall-to-wall, Thebarton Theatre witnessed the beckoning influence of Chet Faker firsthand. Top-knots galore and full-faced beards dominated the male crowd, complemented by an overwhelming mist of affection from the ladies.

the AU review's 15 Australian artists to watch in 2015

It's that time again where we look ahead to the year, rather than backwards, and move through the Australian artists we think will make it big in 2015. Now, our definition of "big" doesn't mean a Gotye size explosion - we just think that by the end of this year, all these artists will be well known around the country... some even internationally. Of course, many are well on their way there already. If you look back at our lists from 2013 and 2012, you'll see that usually we're fairly on the ball here. So pay attention! And now, in no particular order:

Festival Review: Falls Festival Day Four ft. Vance Joy + Bluejuice + The Presets - Lorne, Victoria (31.12.14)

It was as if the gods suddenly looked down on the Lorne site of the 2014 Falls Festival and told each other, 'You know what? They've suffered enough with the rain.' - the clouds disappeared for our New Year's Eve in the forest and the temperature rose considerably, a perfect atmosphere for our final day at the festival. Moods were high (weed was probably helping in that regard, too) and the music was totally fitting as one's soundtrack to the end of the year.

Melbourne native Chet Faker has announced his largest Australian tour dates yet for February next year, in a move that is wholly representative of the huge year the musician has had in 2014. With his debut album Built on Glass earning a wide amount of acclaim, Faker (aka Nicholas Murphy) has been travelling the world, performing to what has become a huge fan base. This homecoming Australian tour will see Faker performing with other musicians as a three piece band, supported by Roland Tings and GL.
