Festival Review: Lollapalooza (Day Two) ft. The Temper Trap + Grouplove + Foster the People + Outkast - Grant Park, Chicago (02.08.14)

Day Two of Lolla started later for a lot of people, I gathered, with Friday night's aftershow/party antics continuing well on into the early hours of Saturday morning. Nursing a Red Bull, I arrived back at Grant Park on Saturday afternoon to a party which was already well cranked.

Album Review: Various Artists - Spirit of Akasha: Celebrating Morning of the Earth (2014 LP)

Spirit of Akasha is the compilation soundtrack for the Australian film of the same name. This two-disc insight into surf vibes, psychedelics and folk rock provided by names such as Pond, Matt Corby, Atoms for Peace and Grouplove - to name a few - is an excellent piece of music, but I realised that if I wanted to review this compilation, I had to understand what it was trying to achieve. Every good album has its own story, like a mission statement and to do that I had to discover the story of the original film - Morning of the Earth.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Arena Joondalup, Perth (02.02.14)

Big Day Out and Perth have had a pretty strained relationship in recent years, with venue changes, reduced line-ups and poor ticket sales. This year was no different, with Blur dropping out, and continued tensions between organisers and local councils prompting a last minute change in venues and the announcement by AJ Maddah that it would be the last time the event would come to Perth.

Bo Ningen

The Big Day Out rolled in to Adelaide on its traditional last Friday in January on another scorching 40 degree day. With the decision to move away from the Royal Adelaide Showgrounds, many people were longing for the shade of the grandstand, but the new location proved easy to move around and a good size for the crowd on the day. The bands put on some fantastics sets, despite the heat and the crowd did a great job taking care of themselves and those around them, making it another fantastic Big Day Out in Adelaide. Hopefully there will be many more!

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Bonython Park, Adelaide (31.01.14)

You know you're in for a hard time when you check the weather as you leave your house at 10am and it's already heading towards the 30 degree mark. No city does a summer heatwave quite like Adelaide, but if 2014 was going to be the last year the Big Day Out stopped by this area of the country, I didn't want to reflect on it sitting at home.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Sydney Showground (26.01.14)

Hiccups leading up to something as grand as Big Day Out is nothing surprising in this market nowadays; our flagship music festival has suffered, as of late, from a growing counter-culture that loves nothing more than to criticise in an area they feel they have enough knowledge to do so; among other things of course. Despite that, it still remains that the Big Day Out – super-charged by the relatively recent restructuring of its management – excels at balancing commercial appeal with credibility, giving as much diversity as is needed to ensure people of all different tastes are given all the necessary ingredients to make for a great day out.

Big Day Out Sideshows: Grouplove and CSS to party at The HiFi in Melbourne and The Metro in Sydney.

This is going to be a fun run of shows and especially being in the heat of the Australian summer, we've got no doubt that Grouplove and CSS will be providing Melbourne and Sydney audiences will some awesome pop-fuelled party times for sure. The Californians and the Brazilians are vibrant acts in their own right, so I can only imagine the type of shenanigans they're going to get up to when they combine forces for these two club shows.

The Festival Diaries: Austin City Limits (ACL) 2013 Day Three ft. Atoms For Peace + Lionel Richie - Zilker Park, Austin (06.10.13)

And in the blink of an eye, Austin City Limits came to an end for yours truly for another year. But not before one more day of some incredible music, with Atoms for Peace (pictured) and Lionel Richie closing out the festival.
