By Robert Armstrong The White Album (has anyone ever called it by its official title of 'The Beatles'?) has been remixed and repackaged to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Is it the best Beatles album? Probably not ; other contenders such as Revolver and Rubber Soul are certainly stronger song for song. Is it their most thematically coherent album? Definitely not.

The Farmer & The Owl Festival debuts this March, at its new home among the steel lined laneways and lush urban parklands of McCabe Park in the heart of Wollongong, lined with spacious lots and secluded post-industrial alcoves for music consumption and discovery!
This years lineup for Yours and Owls Festival is absolutely stacked from top to bottom, providing just about everything you could ask for in a music festival. Everything from metal to hip hop, punk to pop, edm to math rock, there’s truly something for everyone. With massive acts like Angus and Julia Stone, Peking Duk, Ocean Alley and Hockey Dad taking most of the spotlight, there’s plenty of amazing bands and artists that are flying under the radar. So here’s 10 of the hidden gems of the line up.
The final day for me at Primavera has rolled around, and it's probably the most stacked day of the week featuring Slowdive, Beach House, Arctic Monkeys, The Oblivians, Grizzly Bear, Deerhunter and plenty more.
