The 40 best music festivals in the world in 2022
We won't spend too much time lamenting the last couple of years, more than enough ink has been wasted on such thoughts. Instead, let's bust out the wardrobe and get planning a year of festivals to be remember, from east to west and north to south. The best music festivals in the world tick every box, every genre, every style and every desire. Are you going to be able to visit all 40 of these? Probably not, so work your way through our list and make your choices from there. You can't go wrong with any of them, after all. Alas, we must mention the last two years.

We dearly hope that some of the classics return in 2023, but for now, these awesome festivals will be more than enough.

The best London walking tours
London’s one of the most walkable capital cities in the world. Indeed, in many ways, London is the anti-L.A.: here people think you’re mad if you do drive a car around town. Besides, nothing quite lets you get to know a city like a good walk around – after all, London existed long before there were any forms of public or private transport more sophisticated than a horse. Sure, bus and boat tours are good, but there’s nothing quite like a London walking tour.

Welcome to our critics’ choice of the best bars in Tokyo’s drinking scene. This list features the most refreshing watering holes in the city right now: from craft beer pubs to sake specialists and everything in between. When curating this list, we put a lot of emphasis on quality drinks. But aside from the serious Ginza institutions and award-winning bars, we also want to include casual, less expensive venues that make great neighbourhood hangouts. Of course, if you're looking for one of Tokyo's legendary omakase-style bars, where the bartenders serve up seasonal specialities, you'll find plenty of those here, too. Drinking is all about having a good time, so we’re also looking for the fun factor in a bar. It can be an interesting theme, cool interior design, a quirky menu or even a friendly yet relaxed service that makes you feel welcomed. Ultimately, these are the places we keep going back to again and again, and will always recommend to friends. RECOMMENDED: Looking for a bite to eat before drinks?

Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner
Following its Australian premiere at Sydney's Darlinghurst Theatre Company in autumn 2021, Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner is finally winging its way to Melbourne in winter 2022. And with a rave reviews (including a phenomenal, five-star rating by Time Out Sydney) you bet we're excited. British playwright Jasmine Lee-Jones's exciting work draws on the social media vortex, deploying GIFs, memes and emojis to consider questions of cultural appropriation, racism, homophobia and online trolling. It all spirals out of an online argument about the success of 23-year-old “self-made billionaire” and reality TV star Kylie Jenner, that sets best friends Cleo and Kara against one another. A collaboration with Green Door Theatre Company, the show stars the inimitable Moreblessing Maturure and Iolanthe, as co-directed by proud Bardi and Jabirr Jabirr woman Shari Sebbens, and actress and musician Zindzi Okenyo. “Jasmine Lee-Jones has written one of the greatest debut plays I will ever have the privilege of reading, turning even the simple act of page formatting into a thrill,” Sebbens says. “The voices of Cleo and Kara bust through the atmosphere of a global shift every one of us should be feeling right now, bringing big pain and big heart. They crack open the URL, the IRL and force us to look at the space we hold each other in.” Maturure, who is also a co-producer and community engagement specialist on this project, adds: “My cheeks hurt the whole train ride when I first read this
The Picture of Dorian Gray
The outstanding Eryn Jean Norvill takes on every role in this Oscar Wilde adaptation by STC artistic director Kip Williams that's coming to Arts Centre Melbourne. Exploring the chaotically spiralling aftermath of a Faustian pact for eternal youth, The Picture of Dorian Gray offers a fascinating insight into out selfie-obsessed times. “I was having a conversation with a colleague of mine… about our culture’s obsession with youth, and our obsession with constructed identity and selfie culture, and we were talking about how you might make a work that could start to unpack and challenge those ideas,” Williams says. “Dorian Gray feels like a timely piece to investigate.” All the more so now, given our time lost in the digital desert these past few years. Speaking of which, the show uses the live video technology that Williams deployed to such remarkable effect in Suddenly, Last Summer and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. This production continues the collaboration between Williams and Norvill, who first worked together on a 2013 staging of Romeo and Juliet which reframed the action through Juliet’s perspective. After a five-star performance in Sydney, The Picture of Dorian Gray finally gets its Melbourne outing as part of Rising 2022. Tickets for The Picture of Dorian Gray go on sale February 28.
Sydney Royal Easter Show
Tapping on was never this much fun. If you're an adrenaline fan, then you'll be happy to learn that once again the Sydney Royal Easter Show will bring the best thrill rides from around the world to Sydney Olympic Park, but with one big difference this year: the introduction of the Carnival Fun Pass. The Carnival Fun Pass allows you to tap and play all day: goodbye paper coupons! The Pass is valid for all rides and games – use it on rides like the Rebel Coaster, with 350 metres of track including two 11-metre drops and a gravity-defying giant loop, or the knuckle-biting Aviator – lifting you more than 100 feet up for an exhilarating swing higher and higher into the sky. Younger Show visitors can tap and ride in the Kids Carnival too. You can order your Fun Pass at the same time as you book your Easter Show tickets and have the Pass mailed out to you. The Pass can be loaded with credit online before you go, and it can be topped up at a kiosk or booth at the Show. The Carnival Fun Pass truly brings the Show into the 21st century, and just in time for the 200th anniversary of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW – the organisation that has been presenting the Sydney Royal Easter Show for the last 199 years, and helping ensure that Australia remains a thriving and innovative agricultural producer. The Show will take place over the school holidays, April 8-19, with more than enough to keep you and your crew entertained for a whole day and into the night. Thousands of animals wi
Alliance Française French Film Festival
Plus ça change as the Alliance Française French Film Festival (AFFFF) returns in March for its 33rd hurrah. This year there are more than 42 films to look out for, including some Australian (and world) premieres. Highlights from this year's festival include: Mali TwistThis cinematic time capsule depicts an under explored side of Mali's history through a love story. If nothing else, see Mali Twist for its cinematography, which is inspired by the photography of Seydou Keita and Malick Sidibe. Farewell Mr HaffmannSet in Nazi occupied Paris in 1941, Farewell Mr Haffman follows a Jewish jeweller as he seeks refuge for himself and his family from his French Catholic employee. PeacefulOne of the most powerful films on the AFFFF is Peaceful, a heartbreakingly beautiful story about a man coming to terms with his terminal cancer diagnosis. Directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, Peaceful also stars Dr Gabriel Sara, a real-life oncologist who also draws from his experiences supporting patients in this role. MaigretWould it even be a French film festival without a Gérard Depardieu film? Maigret brings to life Georges Simenon’s best-selling crime novels starring Depardieu as Jules Maigret, the fictional Parisian detective. Petite MamanCéline Sciamma directs in this modern-day fairytale that explores mother-daughter relationships and how to deal with grief. The festival returns to seven Melbourne cinemas (Palace Balwyn, Palace Cinema Como, the Kino, Palace Westgarth, Palace Brighton Bay, Asto
Everyone gets a bit stressed from time to time, the trick is knowing what to do with all of that frustration. You might just need to blow off a little steam. Why not do it with an axe? Yes, an axe. This warehouse set-up in St Peters attracts all sorts of people from hens and bucks parties to office outings. Established in 2015, this bright idea for letting off steam sprung a chain of six Maniax locations around Australia, and the empire only keeps growing. Playing the game is easy. You pick your axe, aim it at the target and heave it with all your might. “Everyone’s got a different style,” says Maniax co-owner Adam Schilling. “Some people are lobbers, some throw it hard, some soft…” They teach the same technique to everyone, says business partner Steve Thomas. “But everyone puts their own spin on it. Pardon the pun.” “It’s all about finding your inner lumber Jack or Jill,” says Steve. Their top tip? “Follow through, then flick your wrist,” adds Adam. Schilling and Thomas met as working airline pilots and have been mates since they shared a house in Adelaide. Steve came across the new sport while he was living in Canada. “We did it for my bucks party, and when I told Adam about it he was like ‘we need to set up in Australia.’” They pitched a target in Adam’s backyard in Coogee and “threw until the neighbours got upset”. “The first insurance broker we approached laughed and told us we were crazy,” says Steve. They eventually got it over the line and the venue has a zero-tolera
Friends! The Musical Parody
One thing is certain: it hasn't been anyone's day, week, month or year. But things are looking up with the hotly anticipated Friends! The Musical Parody finally set to hit Melbourne in 2022. This production is of course based off Friends, one of the world's most popular sitcoms. The comedic stage musical has proved just as popular, playing for almost a year in New York before touring the US. After being delayed a number of times due to the events of 2020-2021, the show is finally coming to Melbourne from November 23, bringing all your favourite twenty-somethings to the stage as they negotiate life, love and work in 1990s New York. The musical was penned by Bob and Tobly McSmith, who have a long track record of lovingly spoofing '90s TV shows, recreating TV's most memorable moments and creating soundtracks that bring something new to the stories we already know and love. The Australian production is directed by Dash Kruck with choreography by Cameron Mitchell, set and costume design by Frances Hannaway, lighting by Jason Glenwright and musical direction by Steven Kreamer. And it goes without saying, but this is an unauthorised parody. Tickets for the Friends! The Musical Parody Melbourne season are on sale now.
The government of the day built an elaborate fort on this island 30 metres off the coast of La Perouse in the early 1880s, seeing the land Cook had described a century earlier as “a small bare island” as a good place to ward off invaders. But from the moment it opened in 1885, there were problems: an 1890 Royal Commission found that inferior concrete had been used and the crumbling fort was decommissioned by 1902. It was next used as a retirement home for war vets before coming under the jurisdiction of the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service. Later, it would cameo in Mission Impossible II. The island is also the usual location of the bi-monthly Blak Markets, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led cultural and shopping event. Island hop? You can tour the historical island Sundays at 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm ($15 for adults). The surrounding reefs are a hot spot for local divers.
Melbourne International Comedy Festival
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival – held in March/April every year – is impossible to miss, with the city practically shaking with laughter every night for several weeks. MICF is back in 2022, with the festival running from March 30 to April 24. Some of the festival's biggest events like the Gala and Comedy Allstars Supershow, are coming back, and festival registrations for comedians are now open. They'll stay open until March 2022 as well, to give artists as much time as possible to consider their options in this uncertain landscape. The 2022 festival also features a new logo by local artist David Booth, a sunny, joyful figure that will replace the Judy Horacek-drawn logo that the festival has used since 2019. In 2022 MICF is bringing back international guests, with the likes of Stephen K Amos, Flo and Joan, Arj Barker, Mark Watson, Jason Byrne, Urzila Carlson, Melanie Bracewell and Guy Montgomery all set to perform. Local talent slated for the festival so far includes Ivan Aristeguieta, Carl Barron, Michelle Brasier, Harley Breen, Sam Campbell, Aaron Chen, Georgie Carroll, Nick Cody, Joel Creasey, Alice Fraser, Luke Heggie, Nazeem Hussain, Sammy J, Jimeoin, Becky Lucas, Ali McGregor, Rhys Nicholson, Chris Ryan, Andy Saunders, Dane Simpson and Kirsty Webeck. The festival is bringing back its 24/24 ticket deal for 2022 as well. For 24 hours from 11am on Tuesday, February 1 until 10.59am on February 2, you can score tickets to a range of shows for just $24. There a
Film lovers will be psyched to see new life breathed into one of the greats of ‘70s cinema in Carissa Licciardello’s fresh take on this John Cassavetes drama. The 1977 movie about an ageing actress self-combusting in the out-of-town tryouts for a new Broadway show has developed a devoted cult following since its premiere. In 2008, it was adapted for the stage by auteur director Ivo van Hove, and proved a significant source of inspiration for The Second Woman, one of the most celebrated pieces of performance to come out of Australia in the last decade. Licciardello’s reimagining casts Seven Types of Ambiguity star Leeanna Walsman as Myrtle, the role made famous by Geena Rowlands. Myrtle is due to star in a new play but is finding it near impossible to get into character as her mind is somewhere else entirely, dealing with her own changing currency. By the time we reach the play’s opening night, Myrtle has gone to a truly dark place. Teste’s version, which is performed in French with English surtitles, uses live video, some moments of improvisation, and even the use of fragrances (designed by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the nose behind some of the world’s best-selling perfumes) used strategically in the auditorium to create a multi-sensory storytelling experience. “Carissa had a way in and she knew exactly why it needed to be done,” Belvoir’s artistic director Eamon Flack says of the new adaptation. “For anyone who saw her production of A Room of One’s Own, it’s clear that she
La Bohème premiered in 1896 and quickly ascended into the pantheon of the greatest operas of all time. The story of a poor seamstress, Mimi, and her bohemian friends is set in Paris around 1830, but Opera Australia’s production, directed by Gale Edwards, changes the setting to Berlin in the 1930s, with lavish costumes and set design that capture all the decadence and glamour of the Weimar Republic, with red velvet curtains, fishnets and boho threads. The opera is a famously heart-tugging show, with big melodies – ‘Musetta’s Waltz' in Act Two is the tune to listen out for, as well as the famous double-dose back-to-back arias 'Che Gelida Manina' and 'Mi Chiamano Mimi'. Puccini’s tragic opera was also the inspiration for the musical Rent and a key influence on the film and musical Moulin Rouge. This production was created for Opera Australia's 2011 season and it has proved a popular hit. This season is the last go-around for it however, so don’t miss out. It’s the ideal entry point opera for newbies, and a classic production for aficionados too. See what else is in the Opera Australia 2022 season.
'Yabun' is a Gadigal word that means 'music to a beat'. This long-running Survival Day gathering in Victoria Park that provides a space for people to share in the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people every year.

Invasion Day Rally
Sydney's annual Invasion Day or Day of Mourning rally will take place again in 2022, as January 26 marks 234 years since British military forces invaded Gadigal land and declared British rule over this continent, along with Aotearoa and other Pacific Islands. First Nations people and allies are invited to participate in an act of resistance against continuing systemic racism, deaths in custody and the colonial project. The rally meets at Town Hall at 10.30am with families and campaigners speaking on injustice. The silent march will head towards Australia Hall on Elizabeth Street, before proceeding to Yabun Festival in Victoria Park.The global Black Lives Matter movement in mid-2020 sparked protests and demonstrations around the world, and spurred on acknowledgement of the race-related injustices that continues to take place in this country against its original inhabitants, too. People took in droves to post on social media and write captions about how they'd 'do better' – well, here's your chance. Anyone is welcome. The organisers ask that all attendees wear face masks and practice physical distancing wherever possible. Keep up with updates on the Facebook event.
Miami’s party-starting DJ Behrouz returns to a Zurich club this weekend
He may be from Miami, but acclaimed house DJ Behrouz Nazari – known simply as Behrouz when he’s behind the decks – has always had a close relationship with Switzerland, which he’ll be renewing when he hits Zurich’s Hive club on Saturday night. Behrouz has made a name for himself in the underground electronic scene over the years thanks to his deep, punchy and soulful take on dancefloor-focused house, which has led him to clubs and festivals around the world. This includes frequent sets at Zurich’s Club Q (sadly no longer with us – read what Behrouz told us about Club Q here, back in 2017) and the epic, wild, desert ride that is Burning Man festival, where Behrouz became a regular on the mighty Robot Heart bus – an actual bus converted into a mobile festival stage, armed with rack-upon-rack of hefty speakers. It suited Behrouz’s uplifting sound perfectly, and you can hear that sound for yourself when the man himself takes charge of the sonics at Hive’s long-standing club night, Rocket (Rakete). He’ll be headlining a bill that also features a host of other DJ talent, including Animal Trainer, Acid Flora, Dario D’Attis and Kyuubi. It promises to be a fine night of forward-thinking grooves. Behrouz plays Rocket at Hive, Zurich, on Saturday February 26.

Sydney Festival is on now: here’s how you can make the most of it safely and comfortably
Sydney Festival commenced its 2022 program on January 6, with over 100 events taking over many of the city’s theatres, parks, pools, streets, screens and galleries throughout the month. But with Omicron cases surging and La Niña opening the heavens and cranking up the humidity, Sydney's 2022 is off to a precarious start to say the least. The festival’s organisers acknowledge that Covid-19 remains an ongoing challenge and have taken this into account in all of its festival planning. All events and festival venues are deploying Covid safety plans and implementing all mandatory Department of Health regulations, including compulsory face masks in indoor and outdoor settings, as well as audience check-ins. Feel more comfortable attending open-air events? More than half of the program is taking place outside, including the return of the free Sydney Symphony Under the Stars event on January 23, and the stacked 22-night Speakers Corner concert series. (Some selected Speakers Corner shows will also be livestreamed, check here.) You can also explore outdoor art installations including the luminescent, towering spectacle, Airship Orchestra, down near Darling Harbour. Over at Barangaroo, Future Dreaming is a large-scale artwork by First Nations artist Jacob Nash, head designer at Bangarra Dance Theatre and Sydney Festival’s creative artist in residence. It serves as a place to gather, look to the past and demand the future. Or, take the kids for a bite with (almost) real live dinosaurs
These countries have made vaccination compulsory – so could the UK be next?
Around the world, compulsory vaccination against Covid-19 is on the rise. Some countries, like Austria, Ecuador and Germany, have mandated vaccines for all citizens above a certain age, while others have focused on certain groups. Italy recently made jabs compulsory for the over-50s, while plenty of countries have mandated them for all public servants and/or health workers. And even in countries where vaccines aren’t being directly mandated, some governments are severely reducing the freedoms of those who choose not to get a jab, with world leaders getting much more vocal about vaccines and anti-vaxxers. Last week, French president Emmanuel Macron caused a stir by saying he wanted to ‘piss off’ the unvaccinated, which probably could’ve been just un petit peu more nuanced. In the UK, compulsory vaccines have been in effect since November, but only for health workers. Certain venues are only allowing in jabbed guests, and some companies have mandated vaccines for their employees – though none were made to do so by the government. But if the current situation were to worsen, would (and should) the government consider mandatory vaccination? On the one hand, vaccines are proven to work.

Vaccines reduce pressure on hospitals, so fewer people die. The unvaccinated, however, are both more likely to spread Covid and suffer more s

Things to buy to support London’s restaurants and bars right now
It’s all got a bit bad again, hasn’t it? With Covid cases rising rapidly in London and lots of us starting to isolate so that we don’t get sick over Christmas, our city’s venues are looking decidedly empty. Some have even closed. Forza Wine, for example, shut on December 15 to protect its customers and staff. Its owner Bash Redford, revealed to Time Out that doing so has lost the wine bar more than 1,000 bookings between now and the end of the year. ‘We had two more positive cases this morning, which we could have gotten through on a skeleton staff, but we would’ve been broken, it’s just not worth it. We had to make the call to protect staff and our customers. If we don’t, no one’s going to be able to get home for Christmas.’ Redford said. If you’re feeling worried about the future for your faves but are nervous to head out for food or booze right now, you’ve come to the right place: we’re spending the next few days rounding up all the stuff you can buy to support London’s restaurants and bars. From brilliant merch and foodie bits to vouchers and meal kits, all these things make excellent last-minute Christmas presents for friends (and treats for yourself).

The UK needs tougher Omicron restrictions, like, now – so what could they be?
Despite a huge drive to dole out booster vaccinations and the enforcement of so-called ‘Plan B’ measures, Covid-19 and the new Omicron variant continue to spread rapidly throughout the UK. A seven-day average puts new Covid cases at nearly 80,000 per day, with Omicron spreading particularly quickly in London. The NHS is delivering record-breaking numbers of boosters, in fact. But that doesn’t appear to be enough. Last week London mayor Sadiq Khan declared a ‘major incident’ due to rising cases and increasing numbers of ill NHS staff, while scientists warned that, without further restrictions, the UK could quickly hit up to two million new Covid cases per day. So the question around future restrictions now appears to be not so much if but when. And, indeed, health secretary Sajid Javid yesterday refused to rule out restrictions before Christmas. In short, England could see new curbs brought in within days. So what could those restrictions be? According to The Telegraph, advisers have presented PM Boris Johnson with three options. The first and most likely option would see Johnson ask the public to limit indoor household mixing at Christmas. This would not be legally enforced, but may help limit the spread of Covid, which is more likely to transmit in enclosed, poorly ventilated spaces. This option doesn’t really involve much government intervention, and wouldn’t need to pass a vote in Parliament. A second potential option is the legal enforcement of restrictions on household
Things to buy to support London’s cultural venues
Things are looking a bit dodgy right now. Covid cases are rising rapidly in London. Lots of us are sacking off socialising so that we don’t get sick over Christmas. The result? Footfall to London’s cultural institutions – who were planning on a semi-normal December – has massively decreased. Want to fight to keep your faves open, but a bit nervous about, you know, actually going out? You’ll definitely want to read on. We’re spending the next few days rounding up all the stuff you can buy to support London’s theatres, nightlife and music venues, galleries and cinemas.

Is the UK waiting until after Christmas to go into lockdown?
Thankfully, it looks increasingly unlikely that the UK will be locked down again over Christmas. Yesterday England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty recommended that people scale back on social interactions over the next week in order to avoid having to isolate over Christmas. But there was no talk of any kind of lockdown. All of which is somewhat to be expected. Last Christmas, all households were kept apart by law. Enforcing another festive lockdown would be tremendously unpopular both among Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s own Tory MPs (many of whom revolted against the vaccine passes bill earlier this week) and among the wider electorate – particularly after recent scandals over Christmas parties held both in Downing Street and the Conservative party HQ in 2020. After Christmas is where things get a little more uncertain. From a political point of view, locking down the country over Christmas Day itself would almost certainly provoke an angrier and more emotional public response than doing so after. But a more important question is this: is there (or will there be) a need for another lockdown? On the one hand, case numbers are rising to record-breaking levels. On Wednesday the number of new positive daily cases in the UK reached 78,610, the highest since the start of the pandemic. Prof Whitty reckons that the number of cases could double every two days, and NHS England has returned to its highest level of emergency preparedness. But the name of the game right now isn’t
The 2021 checklist
Well, it’s certainly been a year hasn’t it. 2021 has brought with it unique quirks that humankind has never endured before: seeing a man shove a flare up his butt to celebrate England’s football success, for a start. As we finish off this year (with perhaps less of a bang than we thought two months ago) it’s time to look back on the year-defining experiences we’ll always remember the past 12 months by. Attending the first freezing cold park meet up with six people. Not knowing what to do when spotting a group of seven having a picnic. Mastering the art of balancing takeaway food on bins. Power-walking across a park to reach the nearest public toilet… only to find it shut. Going to a ‘seated outdoor club’ that’s actually a picnic bench in a wind tunnel. Having an 11am pint for the pub reopening because all the pubs had been booked weeks in advance. Running out of storage on your phone because you’ve downloaded 25 different order-to-table apps. Having to just go up to the bar anyway because the app is incredibly glitchy and for some reason you can’t use Monzo on it. Being at your first gig back and being surprised at how bloody loud it is! Finally going to a gig you booked in 2019 and realising you don’t really like the artist any more. Returning to festival toilets after a year off and being too disgusted to use them. Being caught in the Catch-22 of not being able to go into a shop and buy a mask because you forgot your mask. Complaining at the unfairness of being pinged.
3 of the coolest filmmakers in Japan you need to watch now
What’s considered to be ‘cool’ is subjective, but one criterion that we can all agree on is that to be cool, you have to be unapologetically different from the rest. In the spirit of celebrating the bold, unique artists shaping today’s cinema, Time Out compiled a list of the world’s 50 coolest filmmakers. Among those 50 are three Japanese masters of cinema – can you guess who they are? We know it’s controversial, but Japan’s godfather of animation, Hayao Miyazaki, isn’t one of them – just hear us out. We know that Miyazaki’s hand drawn animations are unparalleled, but the hype for all things Studio Ghibli makes it easy to overlook the work of other brilliant animators and filmmakers in Japan. The reality is that despite some natural preferences that come with growing up with the works of a certain filmmaker, more recent creations by younger visionaries can be just as worthwhile. In no particular order, here are three of Japan’s coolest filmmakers and the best films to watch to get a feel for their work. Spoiler alert: Makoto Shinkai is one of them, and we’ve got some interesting details about his upcoming project – read on. Photo: NetflixHirokazu Kore-eda Hirokazu Kore-eda It scans that the Japanese director once wanted to be a novelist because his ability to create vivid slices of life, shot through with social themes, is deeply literary. Families – biological and chosen – are a preoccupation, most strikingly so in his Palme d’Or winner ‘Shoplifters’, a delicate masterp
