HiResI did a fun post on Australia back in November, but today I stumbled upon the fact that it’s Australia Day. So here we go again! For this week I thought I would feature some of the artists who will be/are performing around the country in celebration of the festivities.

A Little bit of history:

The 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788 (you can read a comprehensive history of the evolution of Australia Day here).*


Incredible – Timomatic


This song is an awesome throwback to the ’80’s music I loved! Part Adam Ant, Part Devo, this is Down Down Down by The Presents


Guy Sebastian with I Like it Like That


Let’s wrap it up with Jimmy Barnes with INXS – Good Time!


Happy Australia Day everyone!


If your country has a national holiday coming up, let us know! We would love to feature the music of your land here on Saturday Morning Music.
