Australia & NZ

Those fortunate enough to be living in (or have visited) Australasia have lots to be grateful for beyond gum trees, kangaroos and kiwis. The musical flora and fauna are unique and fabulously diverse too. This section includes both the most popular downunder artists and some suggestions to explore. Of course you’ll find major acts like Cold Chisel, AC/DC and Crowded House (we’re never shy about claiming NZ artists as Aussies!) but also newer chums like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Lorde.

Naturally the styles of music are as broad as the land itself, so you’ll find the blues of CW Stoneking nestled next to folky indie-pop siblings Angus and Julia Stone. You’ll also find classic albums rubbing shoulders with hot new acts.
