The War on Raves (Australia Edition)
The New South Wales government, hellbent on banning electronic music festivals in the region with onerous regulations may now lose all their flagship music festivals. A statement put on this week from Australian Festival Association suggests that Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Laneway, Groovin the Moo and Listen Out are searching out more friendly-festival areas.
