Photo Gallery: Thredbo Opening Weekend feat. Crooked Colours and The Preatures - Thredbo (06.06.15)

The ski town of Threadbo enjoyed their Opening Weekend featuring headline performances from The Preatures and Crooked Colours. Performing as part of the free Corona Village Concert Series, The Preatures, took to the stage on Saturday night in the Village Square and delivered an exhilarating combination of rock and soul. Performing to a packed out crowd, the powerful stage presence of front woman Isabella Manfredi remained a highlight of the show alongside crowd favourites ‘Is This How You Feel?’ and ‘Two Tone Melody’.

Photo Gallery: Groovin The Moo Part 2 - Maitland Showgrounds (09.05.15)

Part 2 of our Groovin The Moo Maitland Festival photo coverage includes artists such as Peaches, Hermitude, Hot Dub Time Machine, Charli XCX (pictured above), Broods, Wolfmother, RL Grime, Hilltop Hoods and Flight Facilites (ft. Owl Eyes). Photos by Johnny Au.

Photo Gallery: Groovin The Moo Part 1 - Maitland Showgrounds (09.05.15)

The annual Groovin The Moo Festival returned to Maitland last weekend to a sold out crowd. Part 1 of our photo gallery on Groovin The Moo Maitland features acts such as Sticky Fingers, ASAP Ferg, The Preatures, San Cisco, You Me At Six, Carmada and Ball Park Music. Photos by Johnny Au.

Photo Gallery: Groovin' The Moo - Bendigo Showgrounds (02.05.15)

Groovin' The Moo came to Bendigo for another year, bringing with it a brilliant array of talent both from Australia and abroad. From Northlane to Tkay Maidza, through to the Pierce Brothers and the Hilltop Hoods, there was enough music at the showgrounds to keep the party going well into the night. Kimberley Salmond was there for the AU and brings us these shots!

Festival Review: Groovin' The Moo - Bendigo Showgrounds (02.05.15)

On the third leg of the tour, Groovin' The Moo sprung into action at the Prince Of Wales Showground in Bendigo. The weather looked ominous at the start but fortunately, the clouds cleared for a beautiful warm sunny day that was ripe for good music vibes all day long.

Theatre Review: The Book of Mormon - Prince of Wales Theatre, London, England (Opens January 2017 in Melbourne, Australia)

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are better known as the creators of a satirical, blasphemous and overall hilarious television cartoon South Park. It is not for the feint of heart, with insults flying at everything from songs cashing in on 9/11 trauma, to AIDS, even to Jesus Christ himself – who in the world of Colorado’s most famous town has his own talk show. It could be said they are unafraid of any subject which they feel needs a right satirising at that moment.

Photo Gallery: Supanova Pop Culture Expo - Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre (17.04.15-19.04.15)

Over the weekend, Gold Coast was invaded by superheroes, villains, pop culture icons and gamers for the annual Supanova Pop Culture Expo. Krista Melsom was there for the AU Review to catch all the action.

Eating with the AU: Kiyomi - Jupiter's Hotel & Casino (Gold Coast)


Highlight: Wagyu 7+ Tenderloin with Wasabi Butter

Gold Coast's Jupiter's Hotel & Casino is in the midst of a $345 million dollar refurbishment, aimed at completely revitalising the impressive building from the endearingly simple pool area to the in-house dining scene. I was kindly flown up there to check out the two starry restaurants that have opened due to the transformation, the first of which was Kiyomi, a modern Japanese restaurant opened by celebrated chef Chase Kojima of Sydney's Sokyo fame.

Photo Gallery: Peninsula Picnic - Mornington Peninsula (29.03.15)

The Peninsula Picnic provided foodies and wine enthusiasts with an array of delicious lunch options and drink choices that celebrated the fresh produce of the Mornington Peninsula, while sitting back in armchairs with close friends and family and enjoying the pretty sounds of Paul Dempsey, The Waifs and many others. Kimberley Salmond was there to capture the day.

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.

Festival Review: Falls Festival Day Four ft. Vance Joy + Bluejuice + The Presets - Lorne, Victoria (31.12.14)

It was as if the gods suddenly looked down on the Lorne site of the 2014 Falls Festival and told each other, 'You know what? They've suffered enough with the rain.' - the clouds disappeared for our New Year's Eve in the forest and the temperature rose considerably, a perfect atmosphere for our final day at the festival. Moods were high (weed was probably helping in that regard, too) and the music was totally fitting as one's soundtrack to the end of the year.

Festival Review: Festival of the Sun Day Two ft. the Jezabels - Port Macquarie, NSW (13.12.14)

It was a dusty start for punters on the second day of Festival of the Sun, as the weather shined on us once again. Most were slow to hit the stage as they tried to wash their hangovers away - some quite literally with the ocean just metres away. A little late to enter ourselves, Tropical Zombie had already the stage by the time I made it in, delivering a some appropriate tropical vibes to get us all in the mood to groove.

Festival Review: Festival of the Sun Day One ft. Violent Soho - Port Macquarie, NSW (12.12.14)

Against all odds, expectations and forecasts, Festival of the Sun lived up to its name this weekend in the coastal NSW town of Port Macquarie, delivering two days of great music, excellent vibes and, indeed... a great deal of Sun.
