The Meredith lineup came out today and in addition to the imported goods on the bill (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Kurt Vile, Exposions in the Sky, Black Joe Lewis etc) there’s some decent local acts that have been added. I got trampled by middle aged corporates when Icehouse played at a gala ball earlier this year, so I’ll probably refrain from going in for a second helping of Electric Blue. Rounding off the veteran sector of the lineup is former Moodists frontman Dave Graney. Adalita, Oscar & Martin, Matt Sonic & The High Times and Graveyard Train have also been annouced, as well as festival regulars Cut Copy and Eagle & The Worm. Geelong’s King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will be opening the proceedings which should be a treat.
Not many 21st’s rearrange the solar system and let you BYO anyway.
The ballot closes on the 23rd of August.
