Spring has sprung, and with it, a splendid smorgasbord of gigs for the month of September. There’s something for everyone, from funky bands to electronic dance, and everything in between. Check out our top picks below and let us know who you’re keen to catch.

Vance Joy
Australia’s favourite guitar crooner, Vance Joy, is back on the road in support of his sophomore album, Nation of Two.
