November Gig Guide

November 2, 2018

November is a great time – it’s AusMusic Month, summer is just around the corner, and there’s a bunch of awesome gigs happening. AusMusic month is the time to get around local artists and celebrate the tunes are 100% made in Australia. To celebrate, we’ve pulled together some of the top Aussie artists you can catch this month, along with a couple of international acts who are gracing our shores. Check ‘em out below and let us know who you’re keen to see.

Sam Smith
For all the voices there are in the world, there are none quite like the soulful sounds of Sam Smith. The British crooner is back following the release of his sophomore album, The Thrill of It All. Released exactly a year ago, the album has gone onto critical acclaim, topping the Billboard 200 as well as spawning a top 10 single with ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’. Check out all the tour details at the jump!
