Past Festivals & Events

Azimuth 2023


Azimuth 2023 was suitably bursting at the seams with huge moments: Peggy Gou gave a DJ set to remember; Brit band The Kooks sang their indie hits under a canopy of stars; and Chet Faker made his presence felt between the towering cliffs. So many favourite moments across two days and nights of unforgettable performances. As the glitter settles on this year’s one-of-a-kind festival, it’s time to reflect on a sleepless but brilliant weekend.
