Festival Review: Listen Out - Centennial Park, Sydney (03.10.15)

Trimming the fat of a large scale dance festival, Fuzzy's Listen Out has gotten the boutique angle exactly right for the past few years. The music starts around 2pm - when most would rock up to a festival anyway - and rolls out some of the best international and local party-starters across three stages. It's simple and quite perfect, leaving the success of the day purely in the hands of the acts performing, most of whom did an excellent job at keeping the energy up right until a show-stopping set from headliner Childish Gambino, and a show-stealing set from ODESZA.

Festival Review: Listen Out - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (04.10.15)

Listen Out has come back doing the rounds, the lineup having some fan favourites as well as the Red Bull Music Academy stage coming back to bring young talent. This year the festival was simplified to two stages; this idea of festivals becoming smaller and more manageable continues to prove popular amongst music fans. It seems making it easier and thus cheaper encourages fans to come along. Gone are the days of big extravagant festivals with five or six different stages. In this case, Listen Out offered two stages, Atari and the 909 stage; Atari was outdoors under the huge big top tent while 909 remained indoors providing some awesome pyrotechnics.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Ozone Reserve, Perth (27.09.15)

The sun was out for the Perth leg of EDM boutique festival Listen Out this weekend, and with a long weekend on and a lineup that made it the first city to sell out it seemed as if everything had aligned.

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!

Live Review: SBTRKT + Movement - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (08.01.15)

Opening the night was current everywhere band Movement, who’s downtempo vibes got the crowd into the mood, without overhyping them. The band will continue to rise through this year, and with a strong live show it’s no wonder.

Festival Review: Field Day - The Domain, Sydney (01.01.15)

The concept of a music festival the day after the biggest global celebration, New Years Eve, seems flawed from the get go. But the crowd and energy tell a very different story. Festival boys are wearing deep, deep v-neck singlets matched with beards and bucket hats, every other girl is either in a black trilby hat or a bra-less midriff, and everyone is there for a good time.

The third day of the Falls Festival hits and everyone is on great spirits helped by an amazing line up of local and international acts. The Black Lips tore it up in the Grand Theatre while George Ezra had everyone singing along with hit song "Budapest". The closing acts of the main stage were more like production numbers; La Roux, Empire of the Sun and SBTRKT all putting on amazing shows. The Village was also a hive of late night cabaret and performances. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to capture the action.

Live Review: Falls Music & Arts Festival Day Four - North Byron Parklands (02.01.15)

The crowd was looking just a little tired and dusty as the fourth and final day at Falls kicked into gear. It was the coolest day thus far, breezy and cloud covered, but it was nonetheless still baking when Sydney’s Sticky Fingers wandered on to the Valley Stage.

By Day Three, everyone's hitting their stride; it's the first day of Falls where both the Grand Theatre and Valley Stage are in operation, more international visitors are in the joint and punters stand to bear witness to some more world class festival sets. And we've still got one full day and night to go.
