Lifestyle Review: EB Games Expo 2012 - Sydney Olympic Park (05.10.12 - 07.10.12)

Have you ever wanted to be a video game hipster and tell all your friends you played Call of Duty: Black Ops II before anyone else? Yeah, me too - EB Games Expo 2012 was your chance.

Live Review: Soundwave Festival - Sydney Showgrounds (26.02.12)

The juggernaut that is Soundwave is here yet again, returning to Sydney's Showgrounds for the second year running. With a year to get themselves ready (you may recall the festival's move from Blacktown to Olympic Park was a rather last minute affair in 2011), the festival provided punters with an inspired new layout, jam packed lineup and a day that seemed to go off without hitch.

Live Review: Big Day Out 2011 - Sydney Olympic Park (26 and 27.01.11)

Finding it a handy way to catch the vast majority of bands who took over Sydney Olympic Park for Big Day Out in 2010, I once again decided to venture out to the festival grounds for the two consecutive days of the 2011 event.

Big Day Out no.100 - Sydney Olympic Park (23.01.10)


The summer heat was at full force as thousands of people arrived to the 100th Big Day Out.  

Kisschasy played their sweet pop songs to an energetic crowd with hits such as ‘Face Without a Name’ and ‘Generation Why’.

Big Day Out no. 99 - Sydney Olympic Park (22.01.10)


They don’t call it Big for nothing. After what seemed a lifetime of waiting since the tickets went on sale (two hours earlier than they should have for some, thanks for the heads up Facebook!), Friday the 22nd of January  was upon us. And boy, was it upon us.
