Festival Review: Listen Out - Centennial Park, Sydney (03.10.15)

Trimming the fat of a large scale dance festival, Fuzzy's Listen Out has gotten the boutique angle exactly right for the past few years. The music starts around 2pm - when most would rock up to a festival anyway - and rolls out some of the best international and local party-starters across three stages. It's simple and quite perfect, leaving the success of the day purely in the hands of the acts performing, most of whom did an excellent job at keeping the energy up right until a show-stopping set from headliner Childish Gambino, and a show-stealing set from ODESZA.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Centennial Park, Sydney (27.09.14)

After a successful first year, Fuzzy's Listen Out continues to put forth the case for festival down-sizing, standing with just three stages and a cleverly curated line up to ensure that we got just as much variety as a more excessive festival. A bit more niche and thoughtful in it's structure, the day played out with very few hiccups and once again focused on quality over quantity, exposing the direction of the summer festival season and the styles which are getting the most shine this year.

Festival Review: Lost Picnic - Centennial Park, Sydney (23.03.14)

A small-scale boutique festival in the most perfect of Sydney weather; it doesn't get any better for local music lovers. Unless maybe you throw in gourmet food as well! Lost Picnic was a slice of sun-kissed heaven for both foodies and musos alike, bringing two of Sydney's finest restaurants into the fold to make for one of the most pleasant festival atmospheres Sydney has seen.

Eating with the AU: Taste of Sydney 2014 - Centennial Park (Sydney)

The vibe was very relaxed at the sixth annual Taste of Sydney, held in the gorgeous fields of Centennial Park. One expects chaos and long queues as people run around sampling as much as they can in their chosen four-hour session; I mean, we are talking about some of the finest restaurants in and around Sydney setting up stalls side-by-side with exhibitions and pop-up bars. Instead of the frustrating queues, lack of seating, and hurried atmosphere, there was a feel-good vibe, a smooth layout, and a whole heap of distinctive stalls to cater to your every foodie and alcoholic desire - as long as you had enough crowns.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Centennial Park, Sydney (28.09.13)

Fuzzy’s annual Parklife festival seems to be no more; this year it has been replaced by a new brand and new image – Listen Out. The most striking difference is that the new national tour has down-sized and went for a more contained festival rather than an all-out international star-studded event. The market is over-flooded, and Fuzzy have recognised this; they have given us a simple, straight-forward day of trendy tunes and everything we’ve come to love (or hate) about dance festivals.

Live Review: Parklife - Centennial Park, Sydney (30.09.12)

I had to trash my mental map for this year’s always-anticipated Parklife, as the Sydney leg of the established yearly dance festival came with a not-to-distant venue change. The familiar Kippax Lake was left alone as brightly-lit kids marched into Centennial Park for a day filled with gorgeous weather and trendy tunes.
