The Bellarine Peninsula seems to be the place to be this November, with the Queenscliff Music Festival dropping one tasty as hell artist announcement today! The first artist announcement features some of the country's best and indeed favourite live acts and as the festival gears up to celebrate its 19th year in 2015, we can only imagine what goodies the crew behind the QMF still have to offer.

Live Review: Paul Dempsey + Alexander Gow - Factory Theatre, Sydney (07.11.14)

2014 has been a collective pat on the back for Paul Dempsey. Celebrating 20 years of Something For Kate has brought his legacy as a songwriter to the forefront and not that it ever may have been a concern, but no longer must he be concerned with relevancy or industry trends. His work is now settled collectively into our cultural background, his music regarded as classic Australian cannon.

Festival Review: Follow the Sun Festival - Wigley Reserve, Glenelg (05.10.14)

Dave Elmes, the founder of the new Follow the Sun Festival in Glenelg, needs to be commended. The new kid on the festival circuit in South Australia had its first run over the Labour Day long weekend and brought about the perfect excuse to spend a Sunday down by the beach, enjoying some great live music and general excellent vibes.

With a line up of quality Australian acts including Paul Dempsey, Bonjah and Dallas Frasca, it was a glorious day out for all the family. Our photographer John Goodridge was there and brings you these pics.

the AU interview: Paul Dempsey on Adelaide's Follow the Sun Festival, Support Act's 'Bandwagon' campaign and more!

This Sunday, Adelaide will be hosting the first edition of the Follow the Sun Festival. Situated down by the beach at Glenelg, punters will be able to enjoy their long weekend with some talented live performers, both from Adelaide and interstate. We caught up with festival headliner, Paul Dempsey, as he (and we) came down from the high that was the huge Something For Kate 20th anniversary tour, to chat about the new kid on the festival block, focusing on more solo material and his involvement in Support Act's 'Bandwagon' campaign.

Live Review: Something For Kate - The Forum, Melbourne (18.07.14)

Twenty years on and they’re still selling out shows right around the country. Something For Kate’s 20 year anniversary tour was the culmination of all they’d learned on the road, putting on a truly spectacular performance- not that we would expect any less from the band that helped shape Australia’s ‘90s alternative scene.
