Stoneday Lineup unveiled

By johnboy - 7 September 2012 24

UC Live! has announced what they’ve got planned for Stone Day this year.

Entering its 44th year of awesome parties of all shapes and sizes to commemorate the laying of the University of Canberra’s Foundation Stone, Stone Day is here to stay, and is singing a brand new tune and rocking a fresh new look in 2012. Bringing with it all the fun, festivities and atmosphere of the carnival, Stone Day 2012 boasts the theme ’Carnie Party’, and will be held on Friday 26 October 2012 in and around Zierholz @ UC over four stages: THE ZIERHOLZ STAGE, THE SILENT PARTY, THE BALLY and THE CAR PARK CARNIVAL, ensuring there won’t be a corner of Stone Day 2012 that isn’t abuzz with party vibes.

THE ZIERHOLZ STAGE will play host to some of Australia’s liveliest and most exciting acts in SAN CISCO, ALISON WONDERLAND, SKRYPTCHA, THE GRISWOLDS, SUPER BEST FRIENDS, TIN CAN RADIO, BEARS WITH GUNS, READABLE GRAFFITI and National Campus Band Competition winners DAHRNOIR.

Please correct me if I’m wrong here but I get the feeling that a good portion of the disappointment is related to people being unfamiliar with the lineup.

I think it’s kinda funny (actually it’s kinda sad) that people seem to hang on to memories of their last favorite lineup and then judge each new year by comparing the two. To me, the whingeing clearly demonstrates the difference between pretenders, and real fans of music – be it live or recorded. Just because the lineup doesn’t consist mainly of safe and already proven international megastars, it doesn’t mean it’s not going to be any good in my opinion.

I think life could be so much more interesting for people if they chose to experience music by hearing it from a source other than a mainstream outlet. Being adventurous is fun. And quite often rewarding. For me, a big part of what a festival is about, is wondering around and discovering new music that I’d otherwise not had the chance to discover.

This was so much better when it was actually StoneFest.

This cheap imitation is cheap.

They must’ve been stoned off their faces when they decided to rename it Stone Day!

The young folk just care about getting munted and slam dancing.

Wow you are old.

Hipsters will never actually dance at any of these things, they go there, not enjoy it and spend the entire time on their Iphones posting facebook status updates about how awesome it is.
