UTR 2019 End Of Year Roundup

UTR 2019 End Of Year Roundup

C.C. / Friday 20th December, 2019 11:33AM

We've almost made it to the end of an incredible year and an absolutely wild decade in music. Massive thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site in any way in 2019, and to the artists whose invaluable work makes it all worthwhile! As we wave goodbye to a decade that gave us such earth-shaking occurrences as the rise of Footwork, Lyttelton folk music, Soundcloud rap, Lorde, Spotify and Vaporwave, we're already speculating about what kind of significant developments could possibly come down the pipeline in the near future. One thing's for sure: we'll be reporting about it right here when it happens. Dive into our team's impressions on what went down this year with our 2019 roundup features, support your local scene via our handy festive season gig picks below, and ask yourself the crucial question... what will 2020 bring?
