It’s getting into summer and we are being hit hard with music festivals! Looking ahead to summer, here are the highlights for this coming festival season;

BDO: probably the biggest music festival in the country, sells out in most states before the second lineup is released, Jan 17-Jan31st. It was a bit tragic that they didn’t end up pulling through with David Bowie, but they did get Muse, Lilly Allen, Groove Armada, Mars Volta, Ladyhawke, Kasabian, Midnight Juggernauts, and one of the best live acts I’ve ever seen, Peaches!

Peaches- Billionaire

Field Day: In Syndey on New years day, even after a huge night out, Fuzzy never fail to give people to get right back up and get their party on again. This year highlights include 2 Many DJs, Fake Blood, Datarock, Proxy, Sinden, Fred Falke, Amanda Blank, Treasure Fingers and Juan Maclean for the first time Australia.

Fake Blood – Fix Your Accent

Future Music Festival: (Feb 27-Mar 8) The lineup was ony recently released, with prodigy returning to our shores to headline, along with  Franz Ferdinand, Booka Shade, Eric Morillo, Sven Vath, Does it Offend You Yeah and Boys Noize on the list so far.
