Something for Kate return forthe Queenscliff Music Festival2012 lineup

The lineup for the Queenscliff Music Festival 2012 features Missy Higgins, Gurrumul, The Cat Empire, and You Am I plus the long awaited return of Something for Kate.

Paul Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Hyndman have just finished mixing their new record, the follow up to 2006’s Desert Lights, in Dallas and are headed to New York to master the album.

When FL spoke to Dempsey about the new Something For Kate record last year he told us that: “We’ve been spending a lot of time on that as well, doing lots of writing here. We’re really keen to get in a room together and get things recorded – hopefully some time next year. I guess our attitude is to do it as soon as possible, but don’t force ourselves – we’ll know its ready when its ready… I think at this stage the plan is to do it ourselves. We’ve kind of got the recording gear, the various bits and pieces that we need, and I’ve always dabble in engineering and mixing. I’m confident enough that we can get it all recorded ourselves, and then send it to someone to do a better mix.”

The final lineup will feature 60 acts and 150 performances across 5 stages in the festival precinct.
