The 2015 Listen Out festival line up has dropped today and it's looking to be a sweet fusion of hip-hop, dance and electronic music at the events scheduled for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth this September and October. Leading the charge this year is Childish Gambino, who'll be making his Australian return off the back of a popularly received Splendour in the Grass appearance last year. Most recently, Gambino's debuted a new track at Bonnaroo in the States, so we're keen to see what new music stands to come out between now and his next lot of Aussie dates. Falls Festival alumni SBTRKT, Joey Bada$$, Alison Wonderland and Client Liaison also feature on the 2015 bill, with more announcements still to drop!

A mix of mellow tones and synth-laden flow conducted the night, settling the wide-eyed crowd deep into their seats and cementing upright feet to the wood-covered floor. Sold out wall-to-wall, Thebarton Theatre witnessed the beckoning influence of Chet Faker firsthand. Top-knots galore and full-faced beards dominated the male crowd, complemented by an overwhelming mist of affection from the ladies.

Melbourne native Chet Faker has announced his largest Australian tour dates yet for February next year, in a move that is wholly representative of the huge year the musician has had in 2014. With his debut album Built on Glass earning a wide amount of acclaim, Faker (aka Nicholas Murphy) has been travelling the world, performing to what has become a huge fan base. This homecoming Australian tour will see Faker performing with other musicians as a three piece band, supported by Roland Tings and GL.

DZ Deathrays, Ernest Ellis, Awesome Tapes From Africa and more round out the Secret Garden Festival's lineup!

The sold-out Secret Garden Festival has dropped a second artist announcement that is sure to make people either ecstatic that they snagged tickets or devastated they missed out, one of the two. There's just under a fortnight to go until these bands come together for one hell of a party and considering the initial lineup was already ridiculously good, it's no surprise that the event organisers have gone and upped the ante with this second lot as well.
