This weekend is dedicated to everyone who loves to party. From international superstars to local heroes, there’s so much going on, you might need to get a good long nap in the morning just to get through.
For those of you looking to have a more mellow weekend (and avoid some blinding hangovers/comedowns), there are a few chilled live music nights you can enjoy too. So here we go!
