    Default Here is the reason why Australians have to travel for festivals.

    The lineup of the century! Oh god hold me back I cannot contain myself.

    This is seriously the reason why we have to come there to have a decent festival. What a joke.

    The PRESTIGIOUS Falls Festival.

    * Kings of Leon
    * Groove Armada
    * Paul Kelly
    * Midnight Juggernauts
    * Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
    * The Waifs
    * Gotye
    * Built to Spill
    * José González
    * The Go! Team
    * Blackalicious
    * The Mess Hall
    * Girl Talk
    * Kev Carmody
    * Whiskey Go Go's
    * Neville Staples from The Specials
    This is a three day festival. What the fuck. If the second announcement is this shit, I am going to kill someone. At least girl talk will be amusing. Ughh...

    Midnight Juggernauts!!! Nice!

    but you're right, that is a pretty shitty lineup for a 3 day festival. although it would be great for a 1 day festival.

    Wow. Ugly. What about Big Day Out, though? Doesn't that usually draw a mediocre-good lineup?

    Groove Armada is worth most tickets. I'd party with them for three days straight. Umfortunatley I don't think that's the plan.

    As much as we bitch about the lameness of the KROQ concerts, this is what passes for a radio station gig elsewhere:

    Hinder
    Buckcherry
    Papa Roach
    Tesla
    Shadow Falls
    Fuel
    and a bunch of shitty nu-metal and post-grunge bands, and..."even two chicks who play nuthin' but Metallica ... on harps"

    Man I have to go all the way to tasmania for this festival. Going to wait for second announcement. BRMC will be good, Paul Kelly worth a look, but so far so lame. Interesting to see you guys think that it's ok. If this festival were on sale in America it wouldn't sell a single ticket.

    I hate being that guy who goes to a festival just to go to a festival, but that might be me this year cause I told my mate in Tassie before the lineup was announced that I'd go with him. I might have been dreaming and all, but I was hoping for maybe someone like arcade fire to join the ranks. That would make everything all better.

    In other Australian news, muse is doing a full production show in Sydney and apparently one show only. I have four floor tickets. I am awesome.

    V festival is this weekend in the UK. It is by far the shittest festival i've ever been to (it was the 1st year - now i know to avoid it). Yes, there is a handful of good bands, but more shit than i care to mention.

    I think that is a great line up as long as you are not being charged a arm and a leg...I would do it in a heartbeat if it was close to me...

    Well the 3 day pass is $150 which includes camping. As far as Aussie prices go, that isn't too bad. Now to all you people who are saying it's a good lineup - tel me why!
    Any cds i should be...ahem...buying...from this list...?

    And yes - for V festival that is fucking horrible. We got Pixies and Beck and a whole bunch of great acts - pity I was overseas :-(

    Big day out usually has two reasons to go. Last two reasons were tool and muse so that isn't exactly torture, but please don't come to big day out. I mean, there are good people in sydney. I promise. They are here somewhere. They aren't at big day out.
    And if you do come, and someone asks you to kiss the flag; do it or you will be punched in the face. Fuckers.

    I kinda like Fuel. The rest of that lineup is nauseating.

    Yeah, I actually wasn't planning on setting a foot in Australia, just making conversation. Australia has the lowest average IQ of any industrialized nation--I'm pretty sure if someone asks me to kiss the flag I can get them to look "over there" and then just walk away.
