Live Review: Secret Garden Festival - Cobbitty (28.02.15)

A magical, wild and completely creative festival of music and art, Secret Garden Festival 2015 once again proved itself to be an event well worth experiencing. A camping festival that spans from Friday 27th to Saturday 28th February, Secret Garden is on a beautiful farm out in Cobbitty NSW, just an hour’s drive from Sydney yet well and truly removed from the city scene.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Killer Be Killed - Soundwave Festival, Brisbane (28.02.15)

Despite being a massive fan of the sum of the parts in Killer Be Killed (aka The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and The Mars Volta's Dave Elitch) it was one of those things that kind of passed me by - thinking that it would be the standard side project-slash-supergroup that always tends to be more of a ego-boost than anything really resulting in anything worth listening to.
