Canadians Yukon Blonde will be making their Australian return for BIGSOUND this year and today have confirmed two exclusive headline shows for Melbourne and Sydney to boot! Last catching up with them at SXSW, Jeff Innes had told us of their desire to make it back to Australia, a country they've shared a solid bond with over the years.

James Bay set for massive Australian return next January and February!

James Bay's star is one that has continued to rise within the Australian music loving community through 2015, especially with the release of his debut album Chaos and the Calm, hitting #3 on the Australian charts. With "Let It Go" and of course, "Hold Back the River", propelling Bay onto commercial radio stations around the country, it makes sense for the songwriter to come to Australia guns blazin' and next January and February will see the British troubadour do just that. Taking on his largest shows in Australia and his first ever show in New Zealand, Bay will build upon his brief visit earlier this year, showcasing Chaos and the Calm in full.

While here as part of both Melbourne Festival and Brisbane Festival, Iceland's experimental techno wizards Kiasmos - the duo of Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen - will be taking their live show around Australia, and for once, Sydney is strangely missing out.

Sydney boys RÜFÜS have announced a huge two-week run of tour dates that will take them around the country and then back to North America, all in support of their killer tune, "You Were Right".

Jhene Aiko to perform intimate Soulfest sideshow in Sydney

For a second year, Soulfest is set to bring down a who's who of the soul, R&B, and hip hop industry to Australia and perhaps one of the most exciting, relatively new artists on the line up is the increasingly popular Jhené Aiko. Having come so far in such a short time, with her 2014 debut album Souled Out still making waves in the industry, it makes sense that demand push for Aiko to have her very own headline sideshow in addition to her appearance as part of Soulfest. Sydney is the lucky city to get this, with the opportunity to see Aiko do her thing at the Metro Theatre the perfect opportunity to see why she has been compared to the late, great Aaliyah in a live environment.
