Splendour in the Grass 2010 - Queensland.

an acquaintance of mine posted the line up for this festival on another acquaintance's facebook page... i didn't believe it at first, because you only see line ups this good in America. but holy fucking hell, it is real.

usually held in Byron Bay, it's moved to Woodford in Queensland this year and i thought i'd make this thread to see if there's any other interest amongst the throng of Aussies on this board.

i am praying to God, Ra, Allah, Muhammed, David Bowie & Morgan Freeman that i can find just one person who would come with me. i do have family in Brisbane & Kingaroy, so that's a positive.

ohh shit

to be honest i'd settle for seeing LCD and FR sideshows, but i'm not sure how likely that is... as a student I want to travel as little from the GC as I can...

I only heard part of an ad on JJJ tonight and wasn't sure what the festival was... I was hoping it would be touring.

I'm not so keen on going all the way up to Queensland, especially since I was only there last year and plan on going to WA instead. I'd consider an interstate trip if it were NSW or Vic. But then again, I'd do anything to see heaps of these bands - the only one of that list I've seen live is Empire of the Sun (who were awesome).

Wish I knew more people up in QLD. However, if an interference trip could be planned, I'd be in on it.

well it looks like i'm going going to cost about a grand, but when i look back in ten years i think i'll look back fondly on it.

i'm driving, so Bonnie and V feel free to join me in convoy. or, as Hot Chip say, you ride, we ride, in my ride.
