2014 CARBON Festival

by

Kicking off at the end of the month on 29-30 March is one of my favourite annual events, hosted by the awesome team over at Melbourne’s ACCLAIM magazine.

CARBON Festival explores the landscape of style, culture and creativity. With forums and panel discussions from leaders in these fields, the two-day event is one of Australia’s premier contemporary festivals.

This year’s CARBON festival will take place at the Storey Hall Auditorium at RMIT University.

Kaytranada: Australian Tour 2013

by

If you’ve been looking for a new artist or some new music to listen to, you’ve come to the right place.

And that new raw talent comes in the form of Montreal-based Kevin Celestin aka Kaytranada.

With firm roots in hip-hop and heavy electronic influences, he delivers melodic rap and dance grooves that anyone can get down to.

The influential producer is making his way down under for some exclusive shows with fellow Canadian beatmaker Ryan Hemsworth in August.

Can’t wait.

Event Review: CARBON Day Two (Part Two)

by

The breakdown of CARBON Festival has concluded with the final review now up online.

Covering the closure of the Festival with prolific photographers presenting in Forum D, as well as a visual feed of my time in Burn City, the cessation of the weekend was something I was not looking forward to, as it also meant that my time in Melbourne had concluded.

It was truly a bittersweet feeling.

Event Review: CARBON Day Two (Part One)

by

Last day of the CARBON Festival brought on a bittersweet feeling.

You knew that the end was near but you didn’t necessarily want the weekend to be over. Saturday brought so much to the table. You could only hope that Sunday would bring the same.

Expectations were set, but were they met?

Event Review: CARBON Day One (Part One)

by

I’ve been transcribing my notes from the CARBON week that I experienced in Melbourne and I didn’t realise how much i had written down! Whilst I initially thought I could break down the CARBON weekend in two parts, I have a feeling that my review this year will be broken down into four parts!

So here is Part One of Day One.

Happy Reading! 🙂

I’m so excited!!

Why? Because I am making my way back down to Melbourne for this year’s CARBON Festival!

Dubbed the ‘Style and Culture’ festival, CARBON has been going strong entering its third year, and providing Australian audiences with invaluable insider tips from the creatives that live inside the industry we all want to be apart of.
