This is a pretty wicked line up. I had such an awesome day last year.
In November 2011, Australia experienced a festival akin to the picturesque models of those seen in gorgeous settings all over Europe. Acres of magnificent, natural environments beautified and transformed as surreal lighting and visual displays lit the paths from one stage to the next and mesmerizing sculptures and art installations coloured the mind and inspired the heart.
Within the stunning tactile environment drifted sounds and songs; many were known, others were not. They ranged from the ethereal, the explosive, the experimental, the prolific as well as the new, and by days end they shared one common theme - they were adored.
This November, Harvest will once again provide the rich tapestry in the Australian music and arts calendar, proudly unveiling a line-up spanning decades-long prominence to pioneering trailblazers.
Harvest is very proud to announce that – BECK - a man who’s graced the world with 11 of the finest albums and is currently working on the next, will be bringing his extensive repetoire to Harvest in November. SIGUR ROS will shift light and space as their unique, cinematic soundscapes drift through the trees, being part of the vibrant, day-long, aural weave alongside Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane, Grizzly Bear, Ben Folds Five, Beirut, Santigold, Cake, The Dandy Warhols, The Black Angels, Chromatics, Ozomatli, Liars, Fuck Buttons, The War on Drugs and Dark Dark Dark.
‘Remember what flights used to be like? When nobody hassled you and you didn’t have to take your shoes off, and throw away your liquids, and keep your baggage under some ridiculous limit, and the hostess didn’t charge you for a glass of water? That’s a pretty much how it was being at Harvest in Sydney.’ The Vine.
“It’s obvious that Harvest is one of the best curated Australian festivals of 2011, immaculate in its execution and in turn having drawn the kind of punter you don’t want to smack in the mouth. Harvest is a festival’s festival, and we hope it’s next iteration is just as special.” Faster Louder
