probably i am just too old but i don’t recognise any of those names, they don’t ring a bell at all, therefore i conclude it is a crap lineup. which is really really disappointing because i went to the first 2 foreshores and they were great fun with awesome artists – including sneaky sound system, pnua, presets. wtf happened this year???!

My friend will love the Stanton Warriors but yes I agree what a crap line up really. I went to the first foreshore and had a ball in the mud and I missed the second and was thinking I should definitely get to this years one, but after reading the line up, I hardly see why I would want to.

Better be a bloody good headlining act.

Miss Kittin & The Hacker are amazing, but not as poppy as Sneaky Sound System or The Presets. Same goes for Zombie Nation and Deadmau5. Maybe they are looking to attract a less popped collar polo-shirted audience this year?

toriness,

there are a couple of good-uns in there.
And it is only the first release, expect some bigger names when they do the next release.
Last year The Presets weren’t named until later either.

I have heard of Deadmau5. Its not my sort of music but its a pretty cool location for a festival.

Stanton Warriors, Miss Kitten and the Hacker and Zombi Nation are really good live. Cant say much about the others because I have never seen them.

Cna someone clue me in as to what sort of music these (Bands? DJs? People?) play please.

These groups of producers (neither band nor DJ) generally play electronicky dancey 110bpm + ditties with the odd guitar solo. Pretty catchy stuff.

Are you kidding? I think it’s quite the opposite.

There are LESS pop acts like Sneaky/The Presets in there and more electo-house producers/DJs. I think you’ll find the exact same crowd if not MORE “popper collar polo-shirted audience” members, even if they’re in fluoro polo shirts with their collars popped. The dance music scene has only become more popular in the past year or two, with electro-house at the front of the line.

The posters here may not know the artists by name, but the lineup this year takes the cake over the past two! They’ve gone for the big names of the past year and I’m sure it will provide.

And the headliner sure will be bloody ;)

Yeah I probably saw half this line up at the first one and didn’t realise it. I’m sure they are all good, when you’re there it’s always pumping! But it just fails to grab ya if you don’t follow the music to the letter and being a hard rock kinda girl myself I just tag along with a friend (very into it) to this kind of scene. Is fun occasionally!

I heard a rumour that Empire of The Sun will be this years headliners. Just a rumour though.

Nah no way, at least I doubt it. Not with Nick Littlemore leaving Empire of the Sun for PNAU.
Admittedly they’re touring with Parklife, but after seeing the backlash when Fuzzy Promotions announced that it would only be half of Empire of the Sun… I doubt any other promotor with any sense would pay for just Luke Steele or whatever his name is.

But yeah, unless you’re a real dance music fan the lineup probably isn’t going to appeal… they’re well known to people who are into the music, but not the general public. Have a surf on youtube if you’d like to see them at other festivals around the globe.

Should be a great event!

i had my fill of no-name DJs at free raves (tell me, youth of today, do underground raves still happen??) when i was at uni. yes i’m sure the event will be great anyway but i don’t need to pay $90 to see DJs/performers i don’t know. but i do congratulate lexington for kicking off these bigger festival-like events in canberra, they have done a good job – i hope they keep it going for years to come.

He’s always been a member of PNAU… same as Luke Steele is a member of The Sleepy Jackson… did they give any reason why he wouldn’t be appearing in the live shows?

I cannot stand foreshore, the “culture”, the music and 99.9% of the people but Deadmau5 performing tempts me.

Foreshore would only be a good thing if viewed from a distance while an explosive device was detonated.

Tori – yeah the raves do happen still. However most of them are targeted at people under 18 now and are shut down before they get past an hour of the event. Not my scene, but there’s still a demand for it.

misshelly – I’m not doubting Nick was always a member and the lead of PNAU. However a few weeks after Empire of the Sun was announced to be doing their first festival line-up at Parklife, it was announced that only Luke Steele would be playing. There wasn’t really any comment as to why he wasn’t going to perform with Empire, but I think I can remember they cited he was going back to work with PNAU on some new music.

Swan – that’s disappointing. You should come along, just try not to be too judgemental and you’ll enjoy it ;)

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me,
But I know I try,
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?
