Strawberry Fields 2014
Who else is getting a little excited for Strawberry Fields? Just over 150 days to go until I can forget about the outside world for three magical days.
The line-up is slowly coming together via a drip feed each Monday and is looking pretty nice.
I'm super keen to groove to Oisima, SQL & Child and Antix whilst drinking some delicious pink lady cider. Anyone have any ideas on who might be playing? I'd love to see James Holden and Daniel Avery on the list.

LINE-UP SO FAR:
Âme
Hiatus Kaiyote
Opiuo
Antix
SQL & Child
Neelix
Interactive Noise
Grouch
Maribou State
Pedestrian
Oscar Key Sung
Oisima

Don't think I'll go. I didn't go last year after attending the previous 3 years and from reports by friends I don't regret it. The festival seems to have moved from 'doofy' to 'boutique' and I had seen some fairly antisocial behavior the year before from an increasingly younger crowd.

I also don't like that they sold tickets this year without even releasing a line up.

I don't mean to be super negative or a downer, just thought I'd chime in and I think it's worth talking discussing. The line up is always quite tempting though.

Yeah what flopp said.

Went in 2012 and it changed a lot from 2011. Couldn't believe how much the crowd had changed in one year. Still enjoyed Tristan, sonic species and chromatome delivering solid sets but yeah its not a doof any more. It's quite a drive from Melbourne and once you cross the border your car gets turned upside down by the nsw police who have a vendetta against the festival it seems.

Sorry for all the negativity, aside from those things it's got a solid line up this year.

neelix again?!

I'm guessing a few of the artist from that will end up being announced at Strawberry Fields...

The lineup isn't exciting me enough yet and by the time the full lineup is out tickets will probably be at their most expensive, that said you always seem to be able to pickup dirt cheap tickets in the week leading up.

the cops are a drainer, i have gone every year, the crowd last year was young but most of the oldies would go to earthcore but i dont really care how old someone is , go for the music and a good time, tunes are good and until i have a bad time then i will stop going , there is a bar for me to drink and the setting is nice, im happy.

Yeah fair enough. Actually I never had any trouble with the police, got lucky with that.

Hmmm I doubt there are many older people at Earthcore either, I reckon it probably has a younger crowd than Strawberry even, they're held on the different weekends anyway.

Not a fan how they are drip feeding line up information as the price increases. I see no reason for them to do it at all, it benefits nobody except themselves. Will probably not go considering the direction the festival has gone recently.

Thinking about going for e first time this year... Lineup looks fairly decent so far, showing plenty of potential. The idea of camping with mates at a festival like this is always enough to get me buzzed. Just hoping I can budget for this, LTEC and Rainbow...

Will be good to potentially see some familiar faces! *stares at DaveyJaye*

I think the intention is to give artists the same amount of attention and a chance to be really exposed. So often you see a huge lineup announce and you just look for names you know. If you don't see them you forget about it. Hopefully this way people start to explore some new music they might not be familiar with, and stop caring so much about who the "headliner" is.

It is def a good way to find out about someone you've never heard of but other people are going apeshit over. Have been hooked on some of the previous SF headliners whom I may never have heard of if it weren't for the festival.

I was keen for another announcement on Monday this week but there wasn't one. Hopefully they release double this coming Monday.
Also, a "vandetta" is exactly the word to describe the police presence heading into the festival. It's a shame, really.

I dont think it helped when people were smoking bongs on the road with cops driving past leading into the festival a few years back when the rain almost flooded the site and adding salt to the wound was when they tried to play music longer than they should have and Dozzy was cut off. Pretty sure the cops came a couple of times and told them to turn the music off. Probably dont have too many credits left with the local police

Would love someone along the lines of Mike Dehnert, Shed, Voiski, Delta Funktionen, Lucy, Terence Fixmer, Vril or Jonas Kopp.

Well you don't get to indicate that one of Dehnert, Vril or Shed will be here in a month without saying more than that.

Pretty awesome. He would go down very well at Strawberry.. But if we're are going to start a wishlist, there are hundreds of dub techno producers/dj's that would do a way better job.
