Wine and watermelons, fireworks and funk … our readers recommend festivals that are about more than big names on big stages
A cool little arts festival set in the lovely Alpine town of Lake Wanaka on the south island of New Zealand. It takes place every second April in the southern hemisphere’s autumn when the colours are spectacular. The whole town gets behind the festival which brings the best of visual and performing arts to the town. There’s such a mix of performances and all well attended by the local community. Great vibe, heaps going on and a really warm welcome. This picture was taken of sculptures of eels, part of the opening night Ahi Kaa – fire project, where rafts and driftwood sculptures were set on fire on the lake – it was very atmospheric.
• Ticket prices vary for each event, next festival 4-9 April 2017, festivalofcolour.co.nz

We’ve been fans of Telafonica since their debut LP back in 2001, so if we seem a little excited about the release of their latest album, Tales of Loss in the Stereo Field, you’ll have to forgive us. It was between 2012 and 2014 that Telafonica slowly carved away at their new album. It took a […]

While listening to your favourite beats is enjoyable, trying to work and concentrate at the same with those beats is pretty much impossible.
