Alright, folks, grab your cuppas and buckle up because our November edition is here, and it’s hotter than a sausage sizzle at a summer fair! 

Our cover story is all about the Surf Coast’s renowned summer event NightJar Festival, and let us tell you, it’s the kind of party that’ll have you feeling the summer vibes from start to finish. For over a decade, Nightjar has been the heart and soul of Torquay, bringing you an explosion of music, arts, and local talent. It’s been a hot minute but after a four-year hiatus Nightjar is back and this year, it’s even more special with two weeks of back-to-back Nightjars and a rocking music lineup. 

But that’s not all, mates! We’ve got some serious rock ‘n’ roll action with an exclusive interview with the legendary Queens of the Stone Age, a peek into the groovy world of SAFIA, and a chit-chat with the awesome Clementine Ford about her Taylor Swift Tribute series. Plus, we’re spilling the beans on the Queenscliff Music Festival. 

Of course, we’re also serving up our usual mouth-watering buffet of goodies – foodie news, album reviews, stage guides, and a cultural compass to help you navigate the region’s hottest gigs and art exhibitions. We’ve even uncovered a shiny new restaurant inside Geelong Arts Centre, and the most impressive pizza joint you’ll ever lay eyes on.

So, dive in, have a tinnie on us, and let’s make this November one for the books! Get ready for a whirlwind of music, culture, and all the good stuff that makes our little corner of Australia so darn special. 

Enjoy the ride, Forte fam!
