5 Seconds of Summer

Summer will still be a few months away but that doesn’t mean the boys from Sydney won’t heat up the stage when they play their debut gig in the city in 2016. The punk pop four-piece, who rose to fame touring with One Direction, have been on a tear recently with the release of their latest record, Sounds Good Feels Good, which came on the heels of their first headlining tour playing to sold out crowds in Europe, the United States and Australia.
