Will they or won’t they? While we will never be sure who is playing a festival until the promoters actually release a line-up, it’s always fun to speculate and throw around any rumours that come up. The next big festival yet to announce their line-up is Splendour In The Grass. With the line-ups for Primavera, Summersonic and Coachella festivals already out there, it’s time to salivate over who will may (or have already actually confirmed) continue down here fore Australia’s premier winter festival.
Perth boys Tame Impala are just one of the many amazing acts set to perform at this year's Open'r Festival! From July 3 through to July 6, Gdynia in Poland will be hosting a slew of international music talent, fuelling rumours of possible performances by certain acts *coughBlurcough* at a certain Australian festival *coughSplendourcough*.
Live albums are always a bit of a doozy. I often question what a band’s intention is by releasing a stack of well-known material in a live format. Generally you would expect the release to mark some event of special significance to the band as well as their fans. Seeing that Blur’s effort with the cleverly titled Parklive captures their performance in London’s Hyde Park celebrating the end of the 2012 Olympic Games, they seem to have met the criteria required to make the album excusable.
Kicking their musical football all over some of Europe and the US’s biggest musical festivals over the Northern Hemisphere, The Temper Trap will return to Australia to play as part of the 2012 AFL grand final.
