Local act The Naked & Famous opened my Big Day Out and they hit the stage just as the rain and shitty weather cleared, which had everyone celebrating to Hearts Like Ours, Young Blood and Punching In A Dream.


I’m still not sold that Tame Impala make a good festival band. They feature too many long acid guitar solos and the open acoustics of a festival makes it sound like you...

One of the biggest sensations in electronic dance music over the last few years, party starting DJ and producer Dillon Francis, is headed to our shores this week. In 2011 the LA native came to attention of dance music demi-god Diplo, who released Francis’ breakthrough single Masta Blasta on his Mad Decent label.

Last seen on our shores as part of the 2013 Soundwave Festival, Ghost bring their heavy metal Ritual Down Under for this year’s Big Day Out Festival, at Flemington Racecourse on Friday January 24. On the face of it, most people might imagine Ghost to be proponents of blood curdlingly extreme metal, rather than the Blue Oyster Cult-meets-The Doors band they actually are. A skeletally face-...

Channelling a smorgasbord of musical influences into one of the most unique brands of rock in recent times, UK four-piece The 1975 caught the attention of the world’s ear with the breakthrough tracks such as Chocolateand Ghosts. Their rise was consolidated with the release of the long-gestating self-titled LP in 2013, a year that saw the band engage in a relentless touring schedule across the...
