Radio DJ Peter Barakan's excellent morning show may have been axed by InterFM a few years ago, but that sure doesn't seem to have slowed the man down: in addition to still hosting several other shows, including Barakan Beat every Sunday evening, he set up his very own music fest in 2014. Live Magic! now returns for its third edition with a packed mix of classic rock, soul, jazz, world music and more, served up by the likes of blues guitar guru Sonny Landreth, legendary Latin and soul vocalist Joe Bataan and British blues prodigy Jack Broadbent, plus domestic talent in the form of Mitsuyoshi Azuma & The Swinging Boppers, Ren Takada, Yuji Hamaguchi, Sara Meets Ichiro and company. Check out the full lineup here, and make sure to get your tickets in advance. Highly recommended for anyone on the hunt for fresh musical experiences.
