December is just around the corner and it’s starting to feel a little bit more like summer (minus the occasional storm which has been popping up here and there in a couple of States!) and many of us will be starting to get excited for those activities which make the season so amazing. Beaches and barbeques are among these but summer is also the time when the festival season really kicks into full gear and our Australian shores are inundated with the best global acts who join local musos to entertain sun-loving crowds across the country.

Motorola DEFY™ + One of the best and brightest stars of the festival calendar is without a doubt is the Big Day Out, eagerly awaited by crowds across the country in late January.
