Harvest Festival confirms moreacts

Emilie Autumn and Die Roten Punkte are among the final artists added to next month’s Harvest Festival. Autumn leaked the news of her place on the lineup last month and now she has been officially confirmed as part of the Bootleg Alley line-up. She’ll be flashing her glam-rock burlesque at the festival’s alternative performance hub Le Boudior, alongside New York Superdiva Our Lady J and neo-cabaret superstars The Wau Wau Sisters.

Die Roten Punke will head up Vaudevillage, a “Molotov cocktail of theatre, comedy and spoken word” also featuring Virginia Gray and a variety of different genre defying performers in each city.

Other non-mainstage highlights include The Snuff Box, described as “part jaw-dropping art installation, part subversive performance space, part hush-hush goodtime speakeasy”; Blissful “alternative area” The Secret Garden, which will play host to some very special funk, soul and reggae DJs ; And The Campfire Stage which will house spoken word institutions such as Woman of Letters and the Little Dum Dum Club.

In total there will be 50 visual, live art, virtual and performance installations across the three festivals with different performers and bands slated across the alt-stages in each city. For a full breakdown of all the performers head here.

Harvest festival dates:
Saturday 12th November – Werribee Park, Melbourne
Sunday 13th November – Parramatta Park, Sydney
Saturday 19th November – Botanical Gardens, Brisbane

Sorry, WHAT? The Little Dum Dum Club are playing Harvest?

neuroticwill said on the 13th Oct, 2011

I would love to see this same lineup/ artistic installations spread over 2 or 3 days. Theatre, comedy and spoken word are the kind of things I would check out at a multi-day festival.

With the amount of quality on this lineup, I can't see myself having any time for anything but the main stages.

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 13th Oct, 2011

i really hope that the 2 main stages are next to each other and operate at alternating times. i also cant see myself getting over to the smaller stages with the quality of the lineup

but as long as i see the family stone, mogwai, flips and portishead. then anything else would be a bonus

Jestarrr said on the 13th Oct, 2011

First harvest seemed to be quality over quantity, but now its the best of both.
Like the others though, can't see myself doing anything other the music.

Emilie Autumn - I've wanted to see her ever since I discovered her. Which was a week after her last tour!

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 14th Oct, 2011

and they still have the replacement International + the Uneartherd acts to come!!!

Piko

Piko said on the 16th Oct, 2011

Replacement International... geeee.. Florence would sell the rest of the tickets if announced. But won't happen. and to be honest, it will bring in a lot of kiddies which otherwise will not be attending.

grattan

grattan said on the 16th Oct, 2011



Unlikely that there'll be a replacement for Foxy - AJ was asked on Friday "no more main stage acts for harvest?" and replied "Nope. We're all done."

Obviously an AJ tweet isn't 100%, but I can't see Harvest getting any bigger.

Jose Cuervo said on the 27th Oct, 2011

Hey gratts, do you know when they are pulling out set times for this?

grattan

grattan said on the 27th Oct, 2011



No idea. It had best be soon. I gots to schedule my day.

humanracin

humanracin said on the 27th Oct, 2011

praying there is no portishead/mogwai/tvontheradio clashes...

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 27th Oct, 2011

Doubt there will be. There's only two stages, from my understanding.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 27th Oct, 2011

The only sideshow I am seeing is TV on the Radio, so that's the only place where I can handle a clash.

Invariably, the bands I want to see most (in order) would be: Portishead, Bright Eyes, Holy Fuck, Flaming Lips, The National, Mogwai, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, PVT, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Seekae, Dappled Cities.

The first three because I've never seen them before.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 28th Oct, 2011

I'm doing Bright Eyes and TVOTR. Going to be a mental week.

Beyond excited for The National.

CoolRusty

CoolRusty said on the 28th Oct, 2011

If there is no clash, I'd love to see Holy Fuck again. They were immense at Laneway this year.

Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo said on the 28th Oct, 2011

As long as i get portishead and flips at both shows im going to im happy

Piko

Piko said on the 28th Oct, 2011

I told Jose to listen to Mercury Rev - Deserter's Songs to prep for his Harvest tour and he scoffed?

Please view a small list of Album of the Year winners. They are in good company

1995 - Maxinquaye - Tricky

1996 - If You're Feeling Sinister - Belle & Sebastian

1997 - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space - Spiritualized

1998 - Deserter's Songs - Mercury Rev

1999 - The Soft Bulletin - The Flaming Lips

2000 - Rated R - Queens of the Stone Age

2001 - Is This It - The Strokes

Shame though, it is NME that chose these albums

grattan

grattan said on the 28th Oct, 2011

Fuck that's a quality list.

Piko

Piko said on the 28th Oct, 2011

Seems to be the glory days of NME editing. If there is such a thing.

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 28th Oct, 2011

I now like Deserter's Songs a little bit less, NME EABOSD...

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 28th Oct, 2011

just need to see in order of preference, Flips, The Family Stone and Mogwai.
the others shall all be cream on top

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 28th Oct, 2011



still coming up to Brisbane then yeah?

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 29th Oct, 2011

Yeah we're doing brisvegas.

And wasn't there just meant to be just the one stage for the musical acts, so practically no clashes? So unless you want to see The Family Stone twice, everyone will see everything and everybody will be happy.

Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo said on the 29th Oct, 2011



Yeah i get there at like 10pm on Friday then leave at like 6 on Sunday

Speaking of class, It seems all my casual part time posting has lead me to 62 likes! I will normally sit on the same number for a few weeks. This slow progress will become somewhat amusing in 7 likes time.

humanracin

humanracin said on the 29th Oct, 2011

Hmm, I thought there were 2 main stages (hopefully alternating), a big top and a cabaret tent?

Piko

Piko said on the 29th Oct, 2011

Yer from what i know it is 2 main stages alternating side by side as you describe with the a funk/world music stage and the cabaret/burlesque stage.

Something like that

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 29th Oct, 2011

My order of giving a fuck:
The National, Holy Fuck, TV on the Radio, Mogwai, Clap Your Hands, Portishead, Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, The Walkmen, Dappled Cities, PVT, Seekae.

grattan

grattan said on the 29th Oct, 2011

From AJ's Twitter: Portishead will be playing unopposed!

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 29th Oct, 2011

there's a funk stage?

well this certainly changes things

Piko

Piko said on the 29th Oct, 2011

Whatever you would call a stage featuring the family stone, hypnotic brass ensemble, kormacs big band, trojan sound system etc

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 30th Oct, 2011

someone asked AJ if Foxy Shazam were going to be replaced by an international act, his response was this:

"It's too late to get an international. It'll be someone local or longer sets"

LONGER SETS PLEASE!

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 30th Oct, 2011



i see, i thought they were having a whole heap of unknown funk bands playing.

from memory though, I believe it has been said that family stone will be doing a set on the mainstage.

mondo22

mondo22 said on the 30th Oct, 2011

i had a dream last night that the flaming lips didn't bring their full show for harvest.
it wasn't a very happy dream at all.

Seems the "Secret Garden" as they are calling it is mostly DJ's and some reggae etc. Family Stone are going to do a set there after their main stage performance.

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 30th Oct, 2011



Came in to say this.

Looks like it's a headline Family stone set (meaning they play twice), Loads of DJs and some spoken word artists.

They also have Le Boudoir, which is your cabaret stuff and Bootleg Alley, which with it's 1920's style bar and "secret sideshows" sounds the most interesting of the lot.

Seeing as that's the "sidestages", all signs point to two alternating stages for every other band tbh. Which, if Portishead gets a full set and they go off poster order, means the Flaming Lips are playing in sunlight in Sydney and Melbourne, which is possibly worse than a half-set.

tyler07 said on the 30th Oct, 2011

Surely AJ wouldn't be stupid enough to put The Flaming Lips on at night... Surely not...

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 30th Oct, 2011



... do you mean during the day?

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 30th Oct, 2011

with all the acts now confirmed for harvest, the set times cant be far off?

i'm going to turn into Cr1zZ and predict that they'll be released tomorrow.

yay, not long now!

Jose Cuervo said on the 2nd Nov, 2011

So they will be released on the 20th then?

timetables cancelled due to printers pulling out

AJ calls printers "cunts" who "no one should ever work with ever again", resorts to pen-and-paper

Printers fail at the last minute, AJ declares it's too late to find a suitable printing replacement, gives everyone paper and crayons instead

berlinchair101 said on the 2nd Nov, 2011

Cancels printing completely. Denies a lack of toner being the reason.

jhf92 said on the 2nd Nov, 2011

Fuck timetables, AJ has bigger fish to fry. He's currently parading his knowledge on asylum seekers and giving some very formidable arguments, such as the 'if you love him so much, why don't you marry him?' equivalent in this debate... 'Would you take those guys into your home and take responsibility for them?'.

so everything else finishes before Portishead starts?
I'm not sure if this is good or bad as that means EVERYONE will be at Portishead!
