What a great line up, and what a shame some of these Best of British bands will be condemned to playing in NSW rather than Victoria.

Aside from the obvious brilliance of Kaiser, Bloc and the sexy Lily, there are some quality Aussie outfits here. Cat Empire, Hoodoo Gurus, the emerging Warnambool band Airbourne and Joshy Pyke.

I'd love to go, but it's hard to say at this stage whether I'd be able to.

And what a shame some of these bands will go on to do an "Australian Tour" when this actually means an eastern states tour, which is not Australia as far as I can see (Bloc Party I'm looking at you )

Oh man...these are the times I really hate living in Adelaide

Blueeyedgirl - I know what you're saying - Adelaide misses out on so many tours - I'm still fuming that NIN and Fall Out Boy didn't make it here.

Look Out for Me, I'll be the tall guy up front when Sarah Blasko takes the stage!

Here's hoping I can convince someone to come the 14+ Hour Drive, or Much Shorter plane ride, in the next couple of weeks!

Bring a tent! We can pitch near by, have BBQ's and play cards and be merry.

I'll bring the Tim Tam's!
I may just take you up on that, I'll see how I go, its not looking likely as most of my friends who would be interested in going are Uni Students....

While I'm at it, Tickets are $185 plus a further $135 to camp there right?...so technically its $320?, If I'm correct?
