My two previous posts were overreactions. Definitely not regretting not trying for a ticket. Half a grand for a top heavy line up is a joke.

I'm curious to see if Golden Plains ever expands its lineup. Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement reunion last year was nothing to sneeze at, and this year, they randomly pulled Os Mutantes (!!!!), Joanna Newsom, Belle and Sebastian and the fucking Clean out of their asses. Acts like that don't play American festivals.

The Hold Steady is there too but they'll play any venue that sells beer.

For which I am forever grateful. Their sideshow at the Corner was awesome.

Point That Thing Somewhere Else, people.

Still shattered that Ms Spektor didn't do any side shows Unlike Danny, I think it'd have been worth it

Shit headliners (not that they're bad, just that there should be bigger names) but there's a hell of a lot of depth. It's also not half a grand a ticket this year, but I still won't be going. Definitely going to be smashing up some sideshows though. Can't wait to see Bloc Party.

Splendour is Bloc Party's only Aussie show. Same goes for EITS, which is disappointing for me, but then they toured in December so I'm not too annoyed.

Very impressed they got At The Drive-In. It's not billed as their only Aussie show, so a tour? Low enough ticket prices at a small enough venue and I may be keen for a Melbourne gig.

Anyway, solid lineup but not much that made me really sit bolt upright. It's cold comfort as all these amazing US and Europe festival announcements are being made.

It and Harvest are the only Aus festivals with lineups that can come close to matching Glastonbury, Coachella, Lolla, every fucking weekend in Austin, etc.

Only Aus shows for Bloc, ATDI, Kooks, Dirty Three and Explosions it seems.

Now I'm depressed.

Average. The headliners are so weak, but it's got a decent undercard. I'm always jealous of people who get to see EITS.

EDIT: Hahaha I didn't notice Lana Del Rey and 360 were next to each other. I think that's where I lost interest.

I tweeted AJ Maddah about Destroyer. He's my only hope.

I'd say Laneway is consistently better than Splendour (Meredith too), and Harvest's sole lineup was profoundly underwhelming.

And damn, just saw FasterLouder (where I read the lineup) has updated to say it's ATDI's only Aussie show. Well, potential money saver, if nothing else.

Also, announcing Dirty Three's set as their "only Aussie show" is pretty funny when they literally just finished a national tour that even went to fucking Castlemaine. If anybody wanted to see them and missed them, they've got NO excuse.

Who would've thought the Soundwave guy'd be your potential saviour?

Though a couple of years ago, you'd have been at this year's Soundwave screaming along to Limp Bizkit's set, I'm sure.

There's no point us debating because I thought Harvest last year was close to the best this country's ever seen whereas you did not. You couldn't have paid me to go to Soundwave, you frothed that stuff.

Laneway is great, yeah. Meredith & Golden Plains bring it too but they're much smaller lineups.

Oh when I was 16 I would have bought a ticket the second they went on sale.
