Happy New Year Forte fam! 2024 is off to a banging start, and we’re here to keep the vibes alive.

Platinum-selling and Grammy-nominated maestro Chris Isaak is making a triumphant return to Australia and NZ, and guess where he’s heading? Geelong, baby! A Day on the Green is going to be epic, and Isaak himself can’t contain his excitement. We can practically hear him strumming his guitar from Nashville.

This edition is loaded with exclusive interviews – Hiatus Kaiyote, Pseudo Echo, and the fabulous trash queen herself Queenie. Plus, get the lowdown on Americana on the Bellarine, Pako Festa, and the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.

Regular goodies? Yep, we’ve got ’em. New festivals, music news, album reviews, artsy exhibitions, and a guide to the region’s hottest gigs. Feeling hungry or thirsty? Check out Two Noble, At The Heads, and Gorge Camorra’s newest cocktail haven, Non Disclosure Bar. 

Isaak is bringing the heat, and we’ve got the inside scoop on everything else that’s sizzling.
