The 14 Greatest Photos You Need To See From Gigs In April

Every single week we send photographers from around the country off to be our eyes on ground at concerts across Australia, from gigs hosted at the sweaty corners of local bars to the grand stages of the biggest music festivals.

Each time, they are able to demonstrate their skill in capturing the energy and spirit of the musician framed within their lens, securing those fleeting moments in images that radiate with that same rare power, sometimes under some very tough conditions. Here are 14 of the top images from our galleries for April 2014.
