Hong Kong's annual music and arts festival Clockenflap have just announced their final lineup additions for the 2012 event. Included in the final announcement are Klaxons, !!!, Bastille, Luke Sital Singh, Ryan Hui, The Lee's and Australian own The Rubens. They join a huge line-up alongside big names such as Primal Scream, De La Soul, Alt-J and Australia's own Sneaky Sound System, Chet Faker and Monsieur Graz.
Australian dance duo Sneaky Sound System and rockers Wolfmother are amongst the latest crop of bands that have been announced to appear at the 2012 EXIT Festival in Serbia. Already on the line up are bands including Guns n Roses, Duran Duran and New Order and with these two acts representing Australia, the line up is sure to be something special!
It’s not often that you could see a handful of big-name Australian acts for free; it’s even more infrequent that you could see these acts whilst burying your feet in the sand of Manly Beach. The event was the Australian Open of Surfing. For something entirely different from what concert goers are used to - it was an excellent, wallet-friendly day.
How do Australians celebrate Summer? Enjoying the sun? A day at the beach perhaps? A good music festival? Well, Hurley and Billabong have combined all of these into a two day event seeing some of Australia's largest acts play Manly Beach in February with a last "monster act" to be announced later this week!
On Saturday afternoon we had the pleasure of joining the "beautiful people" for the second annual Take 40 Stars of Summer party, presented by the new Toyota Yaris. Featuring high energy performances from Sneaky Sound System and Havana Brown, it would be hard to compare the event to last years (in which Jamiroquai headlined), but the popular beats got everyone dancing all the same.
After being bombarded with dance music that has little or no brains - take most of LMFAO catalogue for example - it’s nice to know that there are still decent dance tracks being released. The latest record from Sneaky Sound System, From Here to Anywhere, is a breath of fresh air and brings some integrity back to the genre.
The Take 40 Stars Of Summer party, presented by the new Toyota Yaris, returns this year to launch the summer party season in seriously glamorous style. Set against a stunning harbour backdrop, this uber- exclusive, decadent summer soiree will feature intimate live performances from dance music powerhouse Sneaky Sound System and ARIA Award nominee Havana Brown.
Sneaky Sound System will be heading out from this weekend to celebrate the release of their new album From Here To Anywhere.
Black Angus and Miss Connie will be doing a few surprise "pop up" gigs showcasing tunes from the album which, in keeping with the theme, could be From Here To Anywhere.
The wait is finally over! Following the announcement of Australian dance powerhouse, Sneaky Sound System, as the first act on the Mission To Launch Festival this New Year’s Eve in Canberra, the party organisers are beaming with excitement to reveal the full line-up:
THE LIVING END
SNEAKY SOUND SYSTEM

THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS
With word quickly spreading about Canberra’s inaugural New Year’s Eve Celebration, MISSION TO LAUNCH, organisers are excited to announce the first act to be raising the roof at this year’s party in Weston Park. It is none other than Australian dance powerhouse, Sneaky Sound System!
It was about time that one of Australia’s most prominent electro/dance pop bands Sneaky Sound System hit the Aussie road again on their June/July National Tour in NSW, VIC and WA after going M.I.A touring Europe, successfully.
The gig opened with DJs Jonny Pow and Beni which helped prepped up the audience. However, it was evident that the audience made it to see Sneaky Sound System.
