Music of the Month

Words by Caitlin Trindall.

With so many tours and such little time, it can be overwhelming keeping on top of everything. It can often feel in these winter months like there’s not much happening here in Australia as all our favourite artists take off on European and US summer tours. Not to fear though, we’ve got a list here of some of the artists heading around our country for the rest of this month and into July to keep you ready to go.


Power chick extraordinaire continues her mid year tour this week, including a set at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Women In Electronic Music Showcase, a free event on top the MCA Rooftop going down this weekend alongside Rainbow Chan, GL, HABITS, BUOY & Mirã Bõru. Catch her across the country on her ‘I’m Not Sorry’ tour at the following:
