Tame Impala added to Meredith

Tickets to this year’s Meredith Music Festival may’ve sold out – in record time mind you – but that hasn’t stopped organiser Aunty Meredith from consolidating an already stellar bill.

The biggest of those additions is undoubtedly Tame Impala, who will perform at the Supernatural Amphitheatre in Victoria for the first time since their rain-soaked Meredith debut in 2008. The band just wound up a run of dates for Parklife, and as previously reported are expected to embark on a national tour in December.

Other additions to the Meredith bill include ’90s techno duo Itch-E And Scratch-E, Geelong garage rock act The Murlocs, “future soul” outfit Hiatus Kaiyote and Boomgates, a Melbourne supergroup featuring members of Twerps, Eddy Current and Dick Diver. Described by FL as “serious fun”, they featured in our “FL Recommends” playlist for September.

Tickets purchased in the ballot or online will be posted out in early November. Meanwhile, the ballot for sister festival Golden Plains is now open online. Cat Power is the first of many acts confirmed.

Meredith takes place from December 7-9.

So I'm obsessed with Apocalypse Dreams right now. I might have to go get Lonerism.

Let's get offensively drunk and slur-along to Laymens Terms

awesome addition, i really want them to stop by melbourne real soon. loving the new album, think 'feels like we only go backwards' is the favourite track from it.

If I'm not wearing any pants, don't look me in the eye unless you want to be grinding.

Well I haven't seen the timetable yet. I'm anti-panted in the sunshine and rug up for the cold nights.

Boomgates during the day on the Saturday, I reckon. Wouldn't complain if they were on first, they'd be nice to wake up to.

Stugalug

Stugalug said on the 9th Oct, 2012



Only wake up for the first band? But you'll miss Tai Chi with Grand Master Song and Vodka Breakfast.

Note: they are two separate things.

I don't know! I think I can already see the appeal of the Vodka Breakfast though

$10 says Ramone gets so drunk on the first day he misses half the bands.

Nah I'm all talk, it's more likely that I just won't drink much.

Hopefully Stugalug will be a bad influence.

Stugalug

Stugalug said on the 9th Oct, 2012



I'm a terrible influence.


Vodka Breakfast is classy. It's Tequila Breakfast that gets messy before noon.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 9th Oct, 2012

Tequila isn't really a breakfast spirit.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 9th Oct, 2012

Although you could raise a good argument that Patron XO Cafe is a breakfast spirit.

I'm pretty soft. I generally stick to beer before midday.

Stugalug

Stugalug said on the 9th Oct, 2012

Breakfast Bloody Marys are the stuff dreams are made of. Well, my dreams anyway, with lots of snakes.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 9th Oct, 2012



You are a wise man.

That is why vodka is the only decent breakfast spirit.

Stugalug

Stugalug said on the 9th Oct, 2012



That's one word for it.



For brunch, it's Gin and Jagerbombs.

Keen as beans for this headlining tour. Lonerism is fantastic, perfect continuation of Innerspeaker for mine.

I agree with everything Stugs says here.
Although I am more of a beer and cereal man myself.
I cant believe you havent mentioned Pink Flamingo's yet.

Carlton Draught poured straight into a box of Coco Pops?

Pink Flamingos are dessert, mate.

Melbourne Bitter into Weet Bix.
Fair call.
I'd like a full run down of this "menu"

I got mine at Dan Murphys.
I think a 2L to open the festival sounds good.
I love the use of the handle.
