As the Splendour on the Grass sideshows roll into town, I covered the Kelis show at the Prince Bandroom in Melbourne. Kelis performed a massive 18 song setlist, including; Milkshake, Trick Me and Millionaire. Her unique blend of soul & electronica was perfectly complimented by support act Jones Jnr, a soul/beats duo from Sydney (awesome discovery). Don’t miss these two acts if you have Splendour tickets!

In contrast, Nouvelle Vague fronted by Phoebe Kildeer and former Miss France, Mareva Galanter, put on a high energy show with their pop renditions of punk classics, such as Too Drunk To F*ck and God Save The Queen.
