samples, Girl Talk who will be joined by the utterly mesmerising
Stereolab on their first trip down under in six years and the king of

Not that Drones picture again. Whenever I see it I feel like I am being watched as the bass player is the spitting image of my GF in that pic.

That's a seriously excellent line-up. Four Tet needs to bring Steve Reid with him though, without him his shows tend to be a bit snoreful - they sound great, but they're dull.

lol.. Holly Throsby! Finally!

Very cool lineup - happy to see that they are bringing out The Hold Steady but Girl Talk in that setting will go right off. Also happy to see they are expanding the space in Melbourne over to the QV which should improve the space and food situations that caused issues this year.

JackT

JackT said on the 13th Oct, 2008

Mm, I keep noticing more people I like on that line-up. It pleases me!

JackT

JackT said on the 13th Oct, 2008

Agreed that Girl Talk will go off in these venues. He didn't really translate at Field Day in Sydney.

Last year was better but No Age, Hold Steady, Port O'Brien", Drones and COYH still make this a good lineup.

maybe just my taste....but last year seemed really great and kinda tops this year....nothing pushing me to go to this....

but regardless...one of the best festivals for crowd, vibe and general good time

frankricard said on the 16th Oct, 2008

fuck comparisons to last year! what's the point? there's some really great bands there

grattan

grattan said on the 17th Oct, 2008

Death Set would be the perfect cherry on this... they're touring with Girl Talk, they've just remixed Daedelus, they've got that aussie connection. You know it makes sense!

queenb said on the 25th Oct, 2008

what are the chances of this selling out really quickly? Does Jeromes have a large allocation of the tickets or am I better off through moshtix?

brownie-ll

brownie-ll said on the 25th Oct, 2008



I recall it taking about a month to sell out this year - either way will be fine I'd imagine.

godblesblocprty

godblesblocprty said on the 25th Oct, 2008



ok... didnt sleep for ages ay carnts.

no but it is pretty good. not singles 06-07 but still... pretty good.
(that translates to far better than anything by anybody else)
