As we bid a fond farewell to summer, the sun also sets on an incredible festival season. Harvest, Falls, Pyramid, Summadayze, Peats Ridge, Laneway, Big Day Out, Soundwave, and many, many more awesome festivals – it’s been real. But guess what? The party will not stop here at Mixdown as we still have many more events to look forward to, especially with cover stars and certified Aussie legends Cold Chisel headlining the upcoming Bluesfest, plus plenty of international acts hitting our shores for WOMADelaide and alike. We can’t wait! Of course, all these sweet gigs couldn’t happen without a multitude of the latest and greatest gear. Amplifiers especially. And if it’s amps you’re after, we’ve got you covered this issue with our massive 2012 Amp Special. No matter what your tonal, power, bass, electric or acoustic needs are, we have you covered. As well as that, we have the usual array of interviews with big name stars, all the latest product news, and plenty of road tests of the nonamp variety.
