And so here we have it. Another day, another festival announcement. But there are few we get quite as excited about as Groovin' The Moo. Touring five region cities every May, the festival is a unique way to connect with festival goers outside of the capital cities, while creating a lineup and atmosphere that competes with all the majors - all for under $100 (not including booking fee)!
Yesterday the sun came out in Sydney, without a cloud in sight, and the revellers came out in force, selling out the 2012 Laneway Festival in the mid afternoon.
Bands M83 (pictured above), Feist, The Drums, Cults and Active Child received among the largest crowds (and singalongs thanks to their triple j hits) of the day, while the sun ensured a fair few festival goers would leave with a good red glow.
The event calendar continues to get well truly filled! Here are some announcements and dates for events in February.
Looks like the weather isn't going to stop Brisbane's Laneway from going ahead, and rest assured music-goers will get their thrills from an array of amazing talents at this year's summer festivals! Here'e the latest festival news:
If it wasn't for the surprising amount of attention Big Day Out has received for not selling out as in previous years, you wouldn't have known that the Sydney Big Day Out wasn't a sell out. Lines were still long (but reasonable), stages were still packed, more people arrived before noon than we had seen in the past and the enthusiasm as high as ever. And by the time tens of thousands of people were chanting along to Kanye West, as he was suspended above the crowd, following Soundgarden bringing everyone to their feet for "Blackhole Sun", you realised there was very little different about this Big Day Out than in previous years.
The announcements keep coming from Soundwave HQ with the festival now only a month away. Sydney's own Mission in Motion has been the latest addition to the line up and the guys have been booked for all shows except for the Melbourne date. Sideshows have also been announced for Hyro Da Hero and Catherdral.
Future Music has joined forces with the Formula 1 Grand Prix once again to bring forth Sidetracked Music Festival to the event once more!
Delivering two days of scorching trackside tunes, Grandmaster Flash will be headlining the event, alongside a swag of Australian live acts and DJs, including (but not limited to!) Art Vs Science, The Stafford Brothers, Timmy Trumpet, The Potbelleez, Bombs Away and more to be announced!
