Issue 1715

It’s February and St Kilda Festival is back with a bumper weekend-long program, all for free. Saturday February 17 is all about First Peoples First, so headliner Mo’Ju is our epic cover star.

This month we also check out the new Northcote Rise festival and Bunjil Place’s Summer Stage program. Plus, we chat to Wednesday before they headline Brunswick Music Festival, Billiam before he rocks Brunswick Ballroom, and Abe Dunovits about his brilliantly experimental new album.

We venture to Melbourne’s new live music venue Wax Music Lounge and local favourite Brunswick Artists’ Bar. Finally, we also check out the latest records from Jessica Mauboy, Big Scary, Kirin J Callanan, Tom Snowdon and Vacations. Enjoy!
