Peats Ridge Festival 2011lineup

Summing up last year’s Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts and Music Festival our FL reviewer declared: “…the location is gorgeous, the dickhead factor is at an all-time low and if it was any more laid back, it would probably fall over.” Entering its eighth year now, Peats Ridge has established itself as one of Australia’s leading New Year’s festivals, producing diverse line-ups while remaining true to its ethos of environmental sustainability.

Heading up the festivities at Glenworth Valley this New Year’s Eve will be Gotye, who this week became the first Australian act in five years to achieve double chart success, when his album Making Mirrors debuted at #1in the ARIA charts alongside his crossover single Somebody That I Used To Know.

Joining Mr De Backer will be Californian popsters Dum Dum Girls, blues master Hanni El Khatib, Beijing and Mongolian folk-rock hybrid Hanggai and a huge array of local bands.

Of course, there is more than just music at Peats, with a whole world of performing arts and cultural activities set to be revealed over coming months as well.

I loved Peats Ridge last year (despite the heat, ugh!), but was thinking of checking out Woodford Folk Festival this year. The midnight Gotye set at Peat's this year would be amazing.

Oh..I'm torn!! :(

Oh..I'm torn!! :(



I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm
He came around and he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn't be that man I adored
You don't seem to know
Or seem to care what your heart is for
Well I don't know him anymore
There's nothing where he used to lie
My conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake
And I can see
The perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right
I should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins
And now I don't care
I have no luck
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can't touch I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake
And I can see
The perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn

hoooooooooo hoohooooooo oooooooo

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's right I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake
And I can see
The perfect sky is torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I'm ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You're a little late
I'm already torn

It was my first time last year too :p

The mood of the festival was definately a highlight - so laid back and friendly :)

I think I'll see what Woodford has on offer this year before I make my decision, although I'd really love to see the Dum Dum Girls, Stanton Warriers & Hermitude..

:confused:

Damn bitch you got low expectations yo. Whatever happened to just hanging out in the park drinking some goon and giving a dude a handjob for half a no-doz?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

Solid line-up, will hopefully be there again this year.

Hinee

Hinee said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

it's amazing that simply releasing a decent single, gotye can now headline festivals.

Clearly you dont remember the hype and what not he got after his last album, that got pretty big

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

He played as the final act on the main stage at Laneway twice before Somebody That I Used To Know.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

To be fair, though, Hinee had probably never heard of him before Somebody That I Used to Know.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

He also closed out an ARIA Awards with Learnalilgivinanlovin. That would have definitely gained him a lot of exposure.

rhythm said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

I just hope he's figured out how make his live show work.. i'm running at about 4 disappointing sets due to 'sound problems'

iNegro said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

Feels a little bit like a downgrade this year, but not enough to really stop me from going. Unless Woodford pulls a better line-up. Mount Mocha are a great live act and I'm always up for checking them out live. Good effort nonetheless, should be great!

tend to agree, it's missing the internationals on the Trentemoller, Built to Spill, Shout Out Louds level.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 2nd Sep, 2011

I only saw the Shout Out Louds of those three. The locals killed it - Fishing, Dead Letter Chorus, Big Scary, The Audreys, Cloud Control, PVT etc. Awesome sets.

Jose Cuervo

Trentemoller > This entire lineup.

I'd like to see Stanton Warriors but didn't think Peats Ridge was really the setting for them? Hopefully they'll play Field Day
