So, let it be known that I until this day was a Big Day Out virgin and might I say, what a ride! The day started slow and steady and ramped up for one big party at the main stages.
While backstage at the Big Day Out in Sydney, we sat down with Sydney duo Toucan to talk about their new EP, playing the festival and much, much more...

Heading to Jive for the second time this weekend, I was welcomed to a different crowd of people. Tonight the place seemed to be filled with a more carefree vibe. I guess that's the kind of power The Jungle Giants have over most people.
London's Mystery Jets will be returning to Australia in September to perform a series of shows in promotion of their latest record, Radlands. Already having been announced to appear on this year's Fat As Butter Festival, the quartet will also be travelling down the East Coast with their great indie pop sounds.
On the back of the news of Toucan joining forces and touring with The Jungle Giants later this year, Toucan have also released their new single titled 'Mr Television'. Check it out:

Last Dinosaurs returned to a sold out Spectrum on Wednesday night to celebrate their debut album In A Million Years and were joined by Sydney duo Toucan, who were full of energy and put out a truly impressive set.
We caught up with upcoming band Toucan at Peats Ridge Festival to talk about the festival, their EP Brave New World, and much more!
With every new album comes a new touring cycle. There’s few bands that truly please those wonderful, wonderful earholes of mine on both record and on stage, and The Kooks are one of them.
Sydney duo, Toucan are proving to be a force to be reckoned with. Having just released their debut EP Brave New World this month, the band is about to head out on an east coast tour, finishing up by playing alongside Boy & Bear and Manchestra Orchestra at Playground Weekender in March. So to find out what all the fuss is about, we had a listen to their brand new EP and it turns out the fuss is well deserved.
