Get excited for some huge tours coming up over the next few months.
Portland indie icons The Shins are back for Fairgrounds Festival and Fidelity Festival and are making a few sideshow stops along the way, with Angie McMahon in tow. With their fifth studio album released earlier this year, The Shins haven’t stopped reinventing the bouncy, layered pop-hued indie rock they’ve carved out their reputation on.

TODD TERJE & THE OLSENS
Scandinavian disco lord Todd Terje is coming to Australia and for the first time, bringing his live band, The Olsens, with him. The tour follows the release of his latest single ‘Maskindans’, the first to be taken from his long awaited second album out on Olsen Records in 2018. ‘Maskindans’ is a body moving cover of a Norse Synth spectacular from the dystopian dance floors of ’82 and the live rendition, supported by Roland Tings, promises to be incredible.
