Here at Lomography, we have a habit of checking our calendars for the most unusual and amusing holidays. So when we found out that April 26th is Hug An Australian Day, we knew we just had to dedicate the Friday playlist to our favorite Australian artists!
Though the origins of this event are unclear, Hug An Australian Day has quickly become popular over the last few years, and is celebrated by sending the likes of greeting cards and e-cards to Aussie friends. — About, daysoftheyear.com
It’s not exactly a definitive list, but this week’s Put Your Headphones On Friday playlist is a smorgasbord of Australian artists and bands that we would like to hug for making such cool music! Check it!
