The ten artists you can't miss at The Great Escape

We're about 48 hours from everything kicking off at the annual music festival and conference held in Brighton, England, The Great Escape (TGE), which we're excited to be bringing you live and direct coverage from for the first time since 2012. Like similar events - SXSW, the recent Canadian Music Week or BigSound closer to home, there are too many bands to try and catch. In the case of TGE, we're talking hundreds. Over the past few weeks, we've been pouring through the list and trying to pick out the bands worth your time. Some we've seen before and can vouch for their excellence, and others we'll be planning to experience for the first time at the festival. And whether you're there or not, these are the artists you should listen to, artists you should see and experience for yourself (presented here in no particular order).

Live Review: Angus & Julia Stone - Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne (27.02.15)

Well sweet Jesus, Margaret Court Arena. You make for one fine live music venue, don’t you! When I first heard that MCA was expanding her purpose beyond tennis and hosting an array of concerts and gigs, I had difficulty picturing this concept but only because the last time I was here was well before her renovation, which was debuted at this year’s Australian Open.

the AU review's 15 Australian artists to watch in 2015

It's that time again where we look ahead to the year, rather than backwards, and move through the Australian artists we think will make it big in 2015. Now, our definition of "big" doesn't mean a Gotye size explosion - we just think that by the end of this year, all these artists will be well known around the country... some even internationally. Of course, many are well on their way there already. If you look back at our lists from 2013 and 2012, you'll see that usually we're fairly on the ball here. So pay attention!
