Parklife 2012 dates

Parklife, the festival that boasts that it’s for “music heads and dancing feet”, will be back September and October stopping in on Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Following last year’s mudbath in Sydney the show has been moved from Kippax Lake a location in Centennial Park that has previously hosted Good Vibrations and the V Festivals.

The promoters haven’t announced when we’re likely to see a lineup but the rumoured tours from Robyn, Sleigh Bells and The Ting Tings could well fit the bill.

Last year, the festival featured Gossip, Crystal Fighters, Santigold, Diplo, Digitalism, The Streets, Little Dragon, Lykke Li, and the strangely misplaced Death from Above 1979.

Parklife 2012 dates:

Parklife Brisbane
Saturday 29th September – Riverstage and Botanic Gardens

Parklife Sydney
Sunday 30th September – Centennial Park

Parklife Perth
Monday 1st October – Wellington Square

Parklife Melbourne
Saturday 6th October – Sidney Myer Music Bowl and Kings Domain

Parklife Adelaide
Sunday 7th October – Botanic Park, Botanic Gardens of Adelaide

Same; hoping the line-up is as strong as last year's.

who do y'all think will play? I don't think ting tings are even a shot given the nature of Fuzzy's past bookings. I think Hot Chip/Passion Pit are a lock.

They like to repeat so maybe:
Santigold (but hoping she does Harvest instead)
Gossip (no sideshows at Splendour)
Morcheeba
Robyn
Grimes (or Harvest)
The Golden Filter
Saint Etienne (would be nice)

Gossip @ Parklife last year + Gossip @ Splendour this year = highly unlikely for Parklife this year

Robyn would get me there assuming she isn't tied in with Stereosonic still. Hot Chip would be pretty cool as well.

actually might end up going regardless of lineup this year. after really regretting on giving last year a miss.

The one Parklife I went to, despite its average line up, was a really fun day.

so it's not one of those festivals where you need to minimum ecstasy in system to weight ratio before you get in?

I've gone a couple of times and while I've had great days both times, so many annoying punters there. But that's to be expected I guess.

Parklife is usually alright there's just one or two acts that draw the dickheads in usually, the sound was always terrible at Kippax, I can't imagine Centennial being much better. Kippax was great cos it had the statue in the middle of the pond that some guy on acid climbed up one year and refused to get down until the end of the festival. How are they going to do that at Centennial!

Let us bring forth the powers of FL to construct a pond and statue so grand, even God himself will look in awe at it!
