This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
Big Day Out fans were given something to get excited about when the festival released timetables, local band line ups and more for the 2013 installment!

British India have worked hard to gain their reputation of one as the most hard-hitting live acts in the Australian indie music scene. The Melbourne boys have sold out hundreds of shows and played at nearly all major Australian music festivals. British India released their hit single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’ earlier this year, one of their only releases since 2010 album Avalanche, but it’s seems to be enough as The Gov was mobbed people dying to catch them.
Diafrix (not Die-af-rix don't let them hear you say that) have just been added onto the bill at the Queenscliff Music Festival. The Melbourne based and African born dancehall and hip hop duo who are famous for their high energy performances will be adding their swag to the already insane line-up.
