Splendour 2012 live stream

Last year 46,650 music fans tuned in to watch Splendour in the Grass sets from Coldplay, The Kaiser Chiefs, Elbow, The Vines, Cloud Control and The Vaccines on the live steam and this year Virgin Mobile will once again be delivering live stream from the festival so you’ll be able to watch eight hours of Supertop and Mixup action.

The acts on the 2012 stream lineup include Kimbra, Miike Snow, Ladyhawke, Cast of Cheers, Band of Skulls, Bleeding Knees Club, Last Dinosaurs and more.

Kimbra’s show is sure to be a bit of a step up on the show she presented at Splendour last year, as FL’s reviewer noted at her recent headline show in Melbourne “noticeable from the get go was the production values of the show to come, as with popularity comes money, and the ability to pull out some tricks. Three enormous photo frames formed an immense backdrop, each lit with vivid imagery, changing for every track and accompanied by exceptional lighting effects… The songs weren’t too shabby, either. Given that Kimbra only has the one album thus far, Vows has received such a mighty flogging that she’d be forgiven for getting a bit sick of it. But if Kimbra’s at all tired of her token 11 tracks, she didn’t betray the fact; conducting a looped choir with twitchy hands, repeatedly buckling at the knees as she danced around stage and putting in her all on tracks like Plain Gold Ring and Settle Down.”

Watch all the action from 3pm, Saturday 28th July on Virgin Mobile’s YouTube channel.

Is anyone else watching the stream? That Miike Snow interview was almost unbearable to watch. Interviewer had no idea what the fuck he was talking about "How does Lollapalooza being a one day festival differ to Coachella being a three day festival". Andrew Wyatt looked like it was the most boring interview he's ever done.

it makes me sad knowing those people are getting paid to do those interviews.
