Grizzly Bear confirmed forHarvest and sideshows

Grizzly Bear were all but confirmed for Harvest festival when they announced a pair of suspiciously Harvest compatible dates in New Zealand earlier this week.

It looked pretty darn inevitable that Grizzly Bear would be on the festival’s lineup when it’s released next week and now, just in case there was any doubt and thanks to the tour listings on the band’s record label Warp, we can confirm that they will definitely be playing on the festival tour in November.

The tour listing, which has since been removed but was helpfully screen-shotted by a poster on the Mess+Noise forums, also lists a pair of sideshows for the band. Oddly, those sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne are in far smaller venues than the ones they played on their most recent tour back in 2010 with Splendour in the Grass. No doubt the inevitable quick sell outs will encourage you to head along to the festival shows.

According to the leaked tour info there will be two Harvest events in Melbourne, but the festival’s boss AJ Maddah has since confirmed that this is incorrect and that the Melbourne show will be on Sunday 11th November.

Not to be that guy but I wasn't very impressed when I saw Grizzly Bear live.

Jose said the same thing tonight. I haven't seen them so I'll wait till Harvest till I pass the final judgement for everyone ever.

Didn't the play the Palais last time they were here? Billboard's pretty a underwhelming choice of venue for them.

Oh, you're always "that guy;" you get off on it.

Loved their Enmore show in 2010, would love to see them again.

Grizzly Bear owned splendour, their set was flawless. Such an amazing live band!

Will see them again but their set at Falls a few years back really made me regret skipping the end of Future of the Left. Then again: Future of the Left > most things.

I don't think you'd like grizzly bear, in all honesty. struggling to find the words to describe their sound, it's kind of dark, with folk elements and based a lot around vocal harmonizing. that could be a really shit description, they're the equivelant of what fleet foxes would sound like if they came from new york.

Nope, but you're probably the only person who missed reading the bottom line of the article

Why is that odd? Obviously if a band is playing a festival in a city there would be less demand for a club show than if there was a club show only
