Corinbank 2009 – First lineup announcements

By johnboy - 11 December 2008 31

The Corinbank Festival is running from 27 February to 1 March 2009.

The first round of pre-sales sold out in just two days the other week, before there were even any announcements about the line-up.

Now the first line-up announcement has been made via a media release containing this crucial paragraph:

    The first line-up announcement for Corinbank includes: Blue King Brown, Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls), Resin Dogs Sound System, Darren Hanlon, and The Beez from Germany. The Andi & George Band head a fantastic local line up – details coming soon.

Corinbank 2009 – First lineup announcements

Eyeball’s right though, isn’t he? The festival organisers want your $90 early so it can ‘rest’ in their account and earn a little bit of interest, but then the ‘first lineup announcement’ is, with the best will in the world, extremely underwhelming. Andi & George? Can’t I see them in a pub for a tenner? It makes the whole thing look like a bit of a farce. By all means announce that tickets are available – the folk beardies and hippies will be buying them anyway- but don’t try and dress up the ‘announcement’ as something of an event in it’s own right- because it isn’t.

Well eyeball, we’re really not interested in the views of recluses on social events.

Take this as your last warning.

If you don’t count the wife.

But yes, I’d rather be alone with my record player than surrounded by an array of terrible bands.

Yes, you do seem like the sort of person who would have more fun on their own.

In fact, they did have clowns last year!

It is a shame you are not coming, Eyeball! I think you would have an awesome time.

Nah, that $90 could get me a case of Hoegaarden, and then I could spend my day listening to tone and my ears wouldn’t feel so mollested.

Eyeball seems desperately intent on having a perfectly miserable time.

They’ll just move the entire population of Tilba Tilba up for the week.

Judging by this ‘first announcement’ and last years lineup I think they would be better off asking for a gold coin donation.

splutter! Now that’s just being cruel. I bet there will be clowns, a jumping castle and face painting.

and a stall offering sandals knitted from hemp.

Wow. Great Idea!

Here’s an idea…don’t go! Simple really.

> They want to charge people $90 for this?

Looks ok to me…and besides, you can’t read the “first line-up announcement” part? Suggests there’ll be more I would have though, maybe that’s just me.
