Well hello there. Meet the newest festival on the Australian summer calendar: Tell No Tales. Run by the Hardware crew, the event is “inspired by the European summer” – whatever that means.

So this week has seen a shitload of festivals announce their lineups, and there is some very tasty electronic talent coming our way. My picks?
