With no Corinbank this year the best festival action in Canberra this summer is a clear win for Foreshore.

And today the lineup (headliner TBA 28 July) has been announced:

The organisers have sent through the following:

Marking the end of spring and the start of another great summer, Foreshore is back with more than you wished for! Foreshore’s line-up is sure to delight you, and there is still more to come!

Foreshore has established itself as Canberra’s number one summer youth music festival, and now in its 4th year, it continues to be as strong and entertaining as previous years! We are bringing you the very best Aussie talent as well as some of the biggest names in the music scene internationally.

Tiesto is uncontested as the number one Dj in the world who has been nominated for a Grammy, had worldwide hit singles and performed at the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics with music he composed especially for the occasion.

Calvin Harris is the king of electropop and is one of the few artists who have successfully bridged the gap between chart hits and all out club bangers.

Cut Copy walks the line as pioneers of the new sound movement, creating their own genre of scuzzy disco, post-post-punk, electric rock, space pop of sounds.

Benny Benassi is a Grammy Award winning DJ and producer of electro house music, including the album Hypnotica.

Major Lazer is a collaboration of dance music heavy weights Diplo and Switch. It’s the pair’s dancehall project—a survey of a wide range of Jamaican rhythmic styles, all given a contemporary sheen and the producers’ own ideas.

Afrojack has produced some amazing original beats, as well as crafting some legendary remixes that are played in clubs and headphones world-wide, and that was just the beginning.

Art Vs Science have become a live powerhouse, selling out shows, ascending to festival favourites all over the nation and are soon to release their debut record!

Resident in Ibiza’s infamous Pacha club, Luciano is a world renown, award winning DJ, and founder of Cadenza Records who has performed at virtually every major club and festival in the world!

Miami Horror have flourished into one of the most hyped bands of 2010 who’ve been careering around the Aussie festival and club circuit like a demented spinning top that never seems to stop.

Cassian is the one and only zulu-synth warrior and his quest for dance floor domination has led him to battles all around Australia, and more recently, internationally.

Bursting onto the scene in the last 12 months, The Only have already released their debut single ‘Dancin’, and recently toured their “Only F*cking Rave Party” across the country!

Yolanda Be Cool has quickly become a household name with their 2010 dance floor phenomena We Speak No Americano, which they are currently touring internationally!

If the sibling duo of DJs, The Stafford Brothers, doesn’t ring a bell, then one must wonder where you’ve been hiding for the past few years. Certainly not in the clubs, where the Stafford Brothers are sure sell-out headliners in every state around the country,

‘Who judges DJs to determine which act is number one? I notice that Kicks seem to always be advertising the number one something and it’s always a different act. We can’t all be number one … can we?’

This should answer your question:

Then why not just go to the lake with a few friends, take drugs and jump up and down? There’s no cover charge for that.

Line up looks good, but Id rather spend my money on something else, thing with djs is that they sound the same on cd as they do live…

I did watch the embedded video, it looked like a load of DJs and dance music. Hence I wondered if they had any live bands as well or if it’s just dance only. Their website refers to “hottest bands and electronic acts” so I’m guessing maybe it’s dance only. I just thought someone here might know the answer…..

You could follow the links or watch the embedded video….

I’ve no idea what Foreshore is (having recently moved to both Canberra and Australia). Do they have live bands there or is it just DJs and dance music?

Who did Hendrix worship. And who’s this tiestocles the others speak of?

Bimbo Geek….

Perhaps if you looking for something as your on a budget head out to a local ‘Blue Light Disco’, or maybe the Friday night disco on ice at the Canberra Ice Rink in Woden. That will only cost you $15.00….or is that too much…

How can you call ‘Foreshore’ a low quality event, when the organisers are bringing to town the world’s NUMBER ONE DJ in Tiesto.

johnboy 7:42 pm 21 Jul 10

The setting is rather unusually good though.

BimboGeek 7:32 pm 21 Jul 10

Funny how other events are so much cheaper though.

Looks awesome to me. Tiesto, Cut Copy, Art vs Science – what is there not to like?

Concerts are expensive to put on. People still rave about the first Foreshore (the one in the rain). It’s great to see these kind of events in Canberra.

The only problem with Foreshore is that it doesn’t really have a style. It tries to be everything to everyone and ends up being hideously overpriced pop.

Canberra has some fantastic festivals and parties that have mind-blowing music, (in particular I’ve completely rediscovered house music this year) they’re just not as well promoted as Foreshore and Warehouse because they don’t have as much money behind them. The best events are run by enthusiasts and feature a particular style. By focusing on doing one thing really well some events are so much higher quality even though they have less general appeal.

I probably won’t go to Foreshore because it’s a low quality event and I’m on a budget, I’ll only be there if a lot of my friends go and my finances dramatically improve.
