that would be wonderful, im not sure about twin shadow, but the rest played at reading 2011 so could all make there way to australia for sure, as well as other reading bands like warpaint, bombay, mount kimbie, royal bangs ect.

I doubt it. They've said for their third album that they're going to spend a lot of time working on it and it won't come out as quickly as Contra did after the debut. I could see them coming for Splendour or Laneway in 2013 maybe.

Laneway Twitter - Phew! 26 international acts confirmed for the 2012 festivals. Could've been so many more, but we ran out of space! So much talent around it's crazy.

I'm quite looking forward to hearing the lineup, even though I can't go because I'm not over 18. Hopefully there'll be some good sideshows to go to.
It's usually announced in mid to late October, so not that long to go now.

so if my calculations are correct, there will be;
33 acts
26 international acts
7 domestic acts
6 female acts (or female singers for bands)
and a new stage comprising of DJ's and Electronica acts, many of whom have never played in australia before.

bring on monday!

I just want Bombay Bicycle club and The Horrors and I will be happy with whatever else is on the lineup. Surely laneway are clever enough to see that bringing BBC would be a good move.

Been saying it for ages but I will be very surprised if Junior Boys don't play. Canadian + electronica + new album + need to come back!

A 'headliner' is going to be calling and having an interview within the next few minutes, and its..... Chairlift.

Only got Cults from my wishlist. But Yuck, SBTRKT, Portugal. The Man and DZ Deathrays are all good additions too. Plus I've now got a list of bands too have a listen to between now and January

Hmm Washed Out and M83 clash for me, but aside from that it looks like a relatively smooth (and busy!) day.
