Festival Photos: Womadelaide (Day 4) - Adelaide Botanic Gardens (09.03.15)

To cap off a perfect weekend of World music and craft, participants in Womadelaide were treated to acts such as Sinead O'Connor, Neneh Cherry and Rocketnumbernine as well as Korean punk/pop act Jambinai. The Colour of Time parade bought people together in mutual dust and the Spanish hairdressers, Osadia were creating magnificent hairpieces. Our photographer John Goodridge brings you these photos.

Sydney Festival Live Review: ATOMIC BOMB! ft Gotye + Pat Mahoney + Sinkane + More - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (16.01.15)

Few things on Sydney Festival's music program excited as much as the prospect of this ambitious performance jetting to our country, coated with acclaim from sold-out performances in cities like New York and London. Atomic Bomb! is a huge taskforce of musicians - the majority well-known and highly regarded - put together by label Luaka Bop and David Byrne to tackle one of the most intriguing musical discoveries of the past few years: William Onyeabor.

Sydney Festival Photo Gallery: ATOMIC BOMB! Media Call - Enmore Theatre

At an intimate media call, few witnessed a supergroup of world renowned musicians taking over Sydney's Enmore Theatre to prepare for an ambitious performance, titled ATOMIC BOMB!, and put together by U.S label Luaka Bop. ATOMIC BOMB! is concerned with the recently re-discovered works of Nigerian synth-funk pioneer William Onyeabor and pays tribute through him by drawing upon his fascinating electronic music and having it recreated by a band which includes Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem/Museum of Love), Sinkane, Money Mark (Beastie Boys, Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Gotye, and more. Check out our photo gallery from the exclusive media call. Photos by Johnny Au.

Sydney Festival Photo Gallery: Beat The Drum - The Domain (16.01.14)

It was a party to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Triple J and what a party it was. With stellar performances from Hilltop Hoods, Ball Park Music, The Presets, You Am I and a slew of special guests, Johnny Au gives you but a taste of what went down last night in this gallery:

The Best of AU Photography: St Jerome's Laneway Festival Singapore (January 2013)

We're just weeks away from the St Jerome's Laneway Festival tour and things kick off in Singapore before the bands arrive here in Australia, at the beautiful The Meadow at Gardens The Bay in downtown Singapore (pictured above). We've been proud to bring you exclusive coverage of the event over the last two years, and as we get excited for the 2014 event, we want to take a look back at some of our favourite photos from the 2013 festival, by Johnny Au.

New Music Video: Spender ft. Gotye "Hotel Home" (2013)

Spender and Gotye have come together in making some cool music in "Hotel Home". Wally de Backer's signature vocals are of course, wonderful, while the Spender-penned and produced number is a lovely standout itself. The clip is simple, yet effective; taken from Spender's acclaimed Modern Pest EP, we think "Hotel Home" is a winner for both artists involved.

Event Review: BIGSOUND Day Three (12.09.13)

The mood at BIGSOUND early this morning was notably more sombre in comparison with the exciting flurry of activity of the previous day. More than a few people were nursing the aftermath of a big night with the help of coffees, energy drinks and sneaky naps in the foyer. Thankfully for those who managed to get there in time, the morning began with a Q&A with Amanda Palmer, an event that has certainly been one of the highlights of the conference. In an interview with Mikey Cahill, Palmer talked extensively about Kickstarter, her poem about the Boston bomber, feminism, her new band, record and touring.
