Golden Plains (organised by the Meredith Music Festival) happens next year on the 7-9th of March in Victoria, just 2 hours west of Melbourne. Most tickets are being issued via a ballot system so check their site for details.
The first run of bands has been announced today and there are some goodies.
Mogwai, Tony Allen, Gary Numan, Black Mountain, Of Montreal, The Drones, The Church, Dan Deacon, The Black Seeds, You Am I, Brant Bjork and the Bros, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jim White and John Doe, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, plus more to come…
It will be great to see Mogwai back on our shores as their live shows are devastating. I’m also looking forward to checking out Black Mountain and their strand of stoner psych rock. If you haven’t see Dan Deacon then you need to, he is one of the most unique and fun electronic artists around at the moment.
Here is the Crystal Cat video from his Spiderman of the Rings record:
