Unless you've been on a Tuesday bender unable to listen to the radio or check facebook all day, I'm sure you're all aware of the Parklife line-up announced today. The festival, which in my opinion is Sydney's best, will be returning to Kippax Lake on Sunday October the 3rd for it's 10th time, the line-up very much a reflection of the times.
The artists are as follows:
ac slater, bag raiders, brodinski, busy p, chiddy bang, classixx, cut copy, dan black, darwin deez, delorean, groove armada, grum, holy ghost!, jack beats, jesse rose, kele, mehdi, memory tapes, midnight juggernauts, missy elliott, mixmaster mike, new young pony club, ou est le swimming pool, soulwax, the dandy warhols, the glitch mob, the swiss, the wombats, uffie, washington, wolf gang
Last year, the highlight for me was the earth stage which featured a number of more music-inspired music, meaning MSTRKRFT and Busy P were no where to be seen. I'm hoping the likes of Classixx and Holy Ghost, Grum and Groove Armada as well as Memory Tapes and The Swiss will be here, under the big top in a more personal setting away from the gurn of the main stage.
Cut Copy will be appearing in there first Australian show in 2 years as well which is really good news. I've been playing Bright Like Neon Love again recently, it's an album that has truly stood the test of time.
Here's some tunes to get you in the mood.
That Was Just a Dream - Cut Copy
Paper Romance (Classixx Remix) - Groove Armada
Tickets go on sale on July 1st, pre-sale July 23rd.
