Festival Review: The Farmer and the Owl - University of Wollongong, Wollongong (14.03.2015)

Going down to Wollongong University to attend Farmer and The Owl is an absolute joy. The trip which is only a touch over an hour’s drive from Sydney is an ease and the festival is filled with laid-back easy-going coastal vibes. That is despite the healthy helping of raucous rock that filled out the line-up.

Bass Drum of Death, The Mess Hall, DZ Deathrays, Bad//Dreems and more to play the Farmer & The Owl Festival in Wollongong!

The Farmer & The Owl Festival returns wot Wollongong this March and for 2015, organisers have brought together a great line up of Australian and international guests set to ensure the punters are well taken care of. The inaugural event in 2013 sold out and has now become somewhat of an institution, regardless of its short history. Returning to the University of Wollongong in a few months, The Farmer & The Owl Festival will be playing host to the following line up of bands for you!

Festival Review: The Blurst of Times - The Factory Theatre, Sydney (25.10.14)

Guitars and subverted Simpsons t-shirts ruled Blurst of Times' Sydney debut. Its debut went off without a major hitch, even with some last minute timetable shuffling to adjust to. With The Factory Theatre proving to be a perfect space for the event, triumphing over the aural assault that marred OutsideIn last year. This was accomplished without actually putting the Factory Theatre stage to use, utilizing the smaller Fusebox and Factory Floor stages, and the smart move of setting up a main stage outside. Pushing revelries out in to the open air and giving itself a true festival atmosphere.

Live Review: Yacht Club DJs + Step-Panther - Rocket Bar, Adelaide (05.04.13)

Last night I turned 23. Sure, it wasn’t a milestone year to be celebrated, but all the same, I felt the need to be partying and party hard I did.
