Pictured: WAAX

The Brisbane based music festival and BIGSOUND has come and gone for another year, but the amazing performances we saw have stuck with us for the days since. We've spend the weekend reflecting on all the incredible showcases we saw, and now we're bringing you our list of the 15 best... in no particular order they are:

BIGSOUND Live: Highlights of Night Two - Part Three (10.09.15)


Tired Lion at BIGSOUND Live

My second night of BIGSOUND brought just as much variety as the first. With so many artists to see it’s always a matter of ‘trade-offs,’ but here are just a few highlights from the night!

Gang of Youths, Holy Holy, Timberwolf & more featured on first official BIGSOUND artist announcement!

BIGSOUND has named the first 50 artists for the 2015 live program and for another year, Brisbane looks to become a buzzing hive of excellent live music in September! BIGSOUND Live sees 14 music venues through the Valley taken over by some impressive line ups of bands from around Australia and abroad over two nights for what has become Australia's biggest gathering of industry and music fans. Last year's BIGSOUND program was hectic, showcasing some diverse and brilliant talent - both emerging and established - and this year is going to be no different.

The Grates, Sheppard, DZ Deathrays, Airling and more announced as Queensland Music Awards finalists!

The Queensland Music Awards are coming around again for another year, with QMusic announcing the list of finalists selected for the 2015 awards. Over 40 judges from Australia and abroad have been listening to a whole range of music from Queensland artists and as the final list dictates, the diversity within the music community in this part of the country is well represented.

the AU review sees Brisbane musician Jeremy Neale interview Ross from The John Steel Singers to talk about their upcoming co-headline tour, "The Boys Gone Wild" (the dates are below).

Single Stream: The John Steel Singers "MJ's On Fire" (2014)

The John Steel Singers are back with new single "MJ's On Fire Again". Taken from sophomore album Everything's A Thread. The track lands just ahead of the bands' co-headlined Boys Gone Wild Tour with fellow Brisbane-based reveler Jeremy Neale Check out the single here:

More Australian artists added to the SXSW 2014 lineup!

SXSW is right around the corner and still, the exciting announcements continue to roll out. If you missed it yesterday, a third round of musicians were announced to be headed to Austin for a week of showcase performances, seminars and general music good times, including a bunch of Aussies.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival (Day Three) - Byron Bay, NSW (02.01.14)

The final day’s bill was ostensibly much more low key than its predecessor, yet there were plenty of acts - both well known and not - vying for our eyes and ears. Triple J Unearthed alumni Oliver Tank got through the main stage nerves to play his familiar set to the early birds, while former Unearthed High winner Asta continued to thank the crowd for making her dreams come true. She performed with the charisma of a much more experienced artist, but until her songwriting improves, she simply won’t make a genuine connection with her audience - who in this case were largely unmoved.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Day Three & Four - Lorne, Victoria (30.12.13 - 31.12.13)

It was day three of Falls 2013, and the only thing thicker in the air than the smell of overflowing long drops was the feeling of excitement for the incredible acts that were soon to grace the stages.

Photo Gallery: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Lorne Victoria - Day Three (30.12.13)

As the sun rises over the bleary eyed campers at Erskine Falls, the music begins from both the Valley Stage and the Grand Theatre. Violent Soho, Pond and The Wombats were some of the standout acts, while Neil Finn had the crowd participating in a good old-fashioned singalong. Vydamo is pictured above.

Festival Review: The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Day Three - Marion Bay, Tasmania (31.12.13)

New Years Eve is a time for celebration and, unless you’re headed to some exotic overseas location, there are few better ways to celebrate than with your closest friends, 12 000 neighbours and some of the biggest artists the world over. True, The Wombats may have missed the official countdown in Marion Bay, but then there’s nothing like a bit of confusion and chaos to kick off the new year with a bang.
