Hibernation ends here! Spring festival institution Parklife hits Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide this September and October, and predictably it’s got a huge assembly of big names in tow.

Leading the charge for 2012 is locals The Presets, backed up by a long-awaited Robyn, Ed Banger favourites Justice on the decks and US electro-pop act Passion Pit. There’s also a solid bass contingent, led by Nero, Rusko and Benga. All up, things are looking very good for latest edition of Parklife.
