The weekend and days that follow signal the start of the summer music festival season with Blondie beginning to play around the country, Simple Minds, Devo and the church starting their tour together, Reece Mastin embarking on his massive national tour Russell Brand getting around the cities, and Rick Astley maintaining his promise of never givin’ you up, or letting you down. Over the weekend, get some Art In the Park in Newcastle, dance the day away at Harbourlife in Sydney, see one of the final La Soirée in Melbourne, or while away the days watching the cricket at the Third Test Match in Perth. Queensland has a Pinball Final, Husky are playing in Darwin, and South Australia get Stereosonic and A Day On the Green. Huge!
