Hot Chip, Dirty Three, Courtney Barnett & more announced for Sugar Mountain 2016!

Before the weekend, Le1f was the first name leaked/revealed for Melbourne's Sugar Mountain festival, quickly indicating that the organisers had another vibrant and eclectic line up in store. This morning, they've gone and announced the full line up of artists, musicians and individuals set to take part in the event next January at the VCA and Melbourne Arts Precinct!

Lollapalooza branched out into Europe for the first time over the weekend, taking Berlin's Tempelhof Airport by storm. The sold out event drew huge numbers of music fans down to the defunct airport (one of the coolest festival venues I've been too, I'll add) for some brilliant sets by artists who've been away for a little while, some of the biggest names touring at the moment and some recent festival favourites. Having attended Lollapalooza in Chicago last year, I felt like I was going into this one at least a little prepared, but Berlin's festival game was another beast in itself.

FFS & Deichkind impress, while Macklemore & Ryan Lewis draw 50,000+ to close out Night One of Lolla Berlin!

The first day and night of the inaugural European extension of Lollapalooza came to a close at the Tempelhof Airport on Saturday, with hip-hop, rock and roll and dance music setting up a killer final few hours for punters to power on through to. With perfect weather conditions, an excellent venue and a solid line up of internationally renowned acts performing promptly throughout the Lollapalooza Berlin's first day, festival goers were spoiled for choice when it came not only to the variety of food options on offer, but musical fare too.

The week that is SXSW in Austin; Texas always brings with it its fair share of opportunities to discover new artists. Here were my five discoveries at the festival, all of whom seem destined for greatness. Some may be names you already know, others will probably be ones you've never heard of before. But they're all more than worth your time and attention.

Hot Chip give SXSW a taste of their new record at the final night of the Samsung Milk Music Lounge.

Nestled in what we can only assume was the ground level of a car park on the west side of Austin's downtown, UK electronic outfit Hot Chip tonight played the third and final night of the Samsung Milk Music Lounge as part of the 2015 SXSW Music Festival, following on from sets by Australia's Iggy Azalea and A$AP Rocky on Wednesday and Thursday nights respectively.

Hot Chip are preparing their sixth studio album and they have something for your mind, your body, and you soul, with first single "Huarache Lights", pulsating and beating their way back into our hearts. The mid-tempo banger seems appropriate for almost every mood, with vocalist Alexis Taylor masks his anxiety with an effervescent soundscape drawing upon the best moments of Hot Chip's acclaimed catalogue.

Feature: Splendour 2013 speculation - who will or won't perform?

Will they or won’t they? While we will never be sure who is playing a festival until the promoters actually release a line-up, it’s always fun to speculate and throw around any rumours that come up. The next big festival yet to announce their line-up is Splendour In The Grass. With the line-ups for Primavera, Summersonic and Coachella festivals already out there, it’s time to salivate over who will may (or have already actually confirmed) continue down here fore Australia’s premier winter festival.

Live Review: Hot Chip + World's End Press - The Palace (09.01.13)

Let's face it, the guys from Hot Chip basically look like a collection of the eccentric uncles and cousins most of us try to avoid sitting next to at Christmas lunch. But watching this bunch of bookish Englishmen expertly make everyone in The Palace dance their arses off on Wednesday night was a reminder that looks can be deceiving and those odd-bod relos you see once a year might just be the coolest people you know.
