Jesus fucking H. You do realise you don't have to see every act that a festival puts on a bill, right?

You show me one bogan-free festival in this country, line-up regardless, and I'll show you one very surprised MAB.

There aren't any.

Brilliant additions! Hot Chip and TEED are just about the only acts I'm still keen to see on the festival circuit this year. Will definitely attend something, hopefully Field Day gets them all

Sorry you can't post caps until your 50th post - we're getting this fixed soon (hopefully!).

I don't think it needs fixing = ). It's not broken.

surprised they'd book hilltop hoods again after the absolute snoozefest that was their attempt to bring in the new year in 2009

Falls festival is one of the best festivals around. they always have an amazing lineup. can't wait to go.


.......hold on. does street team talk still work if the lineup is actually decent?

I would like to see another SBTRKT dj set in a small club (he played secret sets at Goodgod and OAF this year.)

I forgot about SBTRKT, I haven't seen him either. Looking like I might have to fork out for Falls...

I wouldn't be surprised if SBTRKT and Hot Chip ended up on FD lineup.

rijnsburgr said on the 11th Jul, 2012

it was always imminent that they would announce lame people like hilltop and boy & bear for those of us who aren't cool enough to appreciate sbtrkt, hot chip, beach house etc..
and would regina spektor dare play another festival here after the damage aston shuffle did to her set at splendour?
am i the only one who didn't know maximo park were still alive and doing things?
keen for them live though, lineup is shaping up nicely.

Laneway is usually pretty bogan-free. Haven't been to Meredith or Golden Plains yet but wouldn't they also be pretty bogan-free with the no douche policy?

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 11th Jul, 2012



I haven't been to Laneway yet, but I'd imagine that I'd be riddled with hipsters?
Better than bogans though.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 11th Jul, 2012

I would say laneway is close to bogan free. this year especially it was. the year before there were a few more drawn in by TDCC but they're like, level 1 bogans, BDO being 5.

from what I can recall harvest was a no bogan affair too.

falls was pretty minimal. crowd was as decent as most I've seen, problem is if there's a group of fuckwits they dont leave and go elsewhere after a while, they're there all day, only going back to the tent to drink.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 11th Jul, 2012

I thought harvest was bogan free too, but the amount of people whinging about a lack of beer suggests otherwise.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 11th Jul, 2012

You haven't seen bogans until you've attended a Future and/or a Summafieldayze. Makes BDO and Soundwave look like a fucking Buckingham palace garden party.

Apple headphones - Using corporate products like a mindless drone.
Sideburns - Not nearly big enough.
Glasses - Aren't ray-ban wayfarers.
Top Button - Undone, too generic.
Hair - Too long at the back, not long enough at the front.

2/10 would not hip.

Looks like there's another drip next week:

http://www.southboundfestival.com.au/wp-content/themes/southbound2013/scripts/timthumb.php?src=http://www.southboundfestival.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/sbd_oneplusonebanner3.jpg&w=620&h=400

We want you to get those thinking caps on and predict two acts from our next artist announce.

Just correctly guess 1 x International artist and 1 x Australian artist and you could win yourself 2 x Pampered Camper tickets to Southbound 2013.

Sounds simple, but it could be a little harder than originally thought. So, get thinking and submit your entries to promos@sunsetevents.com.au. Don’t forget to include your two artists, your name, date of birth, email address and contact phone number. Please note, you must be over 18 to enter.

Entries close 5PM Friday 3rd August, 2012, so great thinking, typing and sending!
