Football, music, and beer – is there a greater holy trinity? That is, of course, a rhetorical question. Obviously the answer is no. That’s why we’re so bloody stoked about the Reclink Community Cup. The class live music lineup is more than worth it, throw in a game of footy and you’ve got yourself a ripper day. We chatted with players from either team to get all the inside dirt. Have a read, and pick your side.

Now that you’ve got your footy fix, it’s right back into the music. Sven Ratzke walks us through his reimagining of David Bowie’s classics, Middle Kids take us behind their gorgeous debut album Lost Friends, we start celebrating The B.East’s sixth birthday early and get another ace Melbourne producer to dig through some crates to produce a tune for us.

Thanks to the Queen for celebrating a fake birthday and giving us a longer weekend. Cheers to that. Hope you spent it wisely.
