Bluesfest announces the reunion of Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, plus more on their second artist announcement!

Well, this is pretty large, as far as additional line up announcements go. Bluesfest has always been known for bringing the artist announcements strongly, but their second round of acts revealed for the 2015 festival has gone and confirmed that once again, Bluesfest is set to be one of the festivals you're going to want to be at. Leading the charge is the first global performance of the reunited Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, with their Bluesfest show being their only Australian gig for 2015.

Festival Review: WOMADelaide (Days 2 & 3) - Botanic Gardens, Adelaide (09.03.13-10.03.13)

I love the vibe of WOMADELAIDE; anyone you talk to who’s attended as a punter or as a part of the line-up will have the same opinion – it’s one of the only music festivals where there is no pretension, no restriction and most of all, it celebrates diversity to the utmost of its potential. I was only able to attend two out of the four days this year but in all honesty, but it didn’t deter me from having a great experience once again.

Sounds on Screen - Sydney Film Festival 2012 Review: Marley (M)

The Boss kicks some "Tex-Ass" with a star-studded SXSW performance.

When Bruce Springsteen was announced as the keynote speaker for the 2012 SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas, the addition of a one off, intimate show was inevitable. Not only was this added, but tonight, in front of two thousand or so lucky fans at ACL Live, he brought his sixteen piece E-Street Band along for the ride, in the group's second show in support of new album Wrecking Ball, released March 5th.
