Parklife 2010 line-up announced

Image for Parklife 2010 line-up announced

Ever since inthemix published the dates for Parklife’s 2010 return, anticipation has been bubbling for the unveiling of the line-up. Now we can at last reveal what Fuzzy has in store for its 10th anniversary edition.

Continuing on the trendsetting mould set by last year’s tour, this bill comes stacked with first-time visitors alongside a bevy of proven favourites. Once again, there’s no ordained ‘headliner’, but rather a mix of talent from across the musical spectrum.

Acts sure to rule airwaves this summer like Grum, Darwin Deez and Holy Ghost! – who you can now grab a brand new free download of – will rub shoulders with Fuzzy alumni Soulwax, Groove Armada and Mixmaster Mike. Then of course (in case you didn’t notice) there’s hip hop hitmaker Missy Elliot strutting her stuff here for the first time in six years.

Cementing this as the most non-genre-specific Parklife line-up yet is the inclusion of indie acts like The Wombats and The Dandy Warhols, while fans will be rejoicing at the live return of local heroes Cut Copy. Read on!

Without further ado, this is the 2010 Parklife line-up in alphabetical order.

I would first of all like to say I am NOT a fan of Fuzzy - I lost patience with their lineups around 2007 because I thought they were pandering too much to the new wave of electro trash that I just couldn't dig....but I am laughing my arse off from the other side of the world.
Not because this lineup is bad (Holy Ghost, Groove Armada, Soulwax, Delorean and Mixmaster Mike would make me buy tickets alone - if I was in Sydney). The lineup is great. Different? Dandy Warhols? Kele Okereke from Bloc Party? You call them regulars on an electronica lineup? Fucking kids are so fickle.
You're not the only ones with an income to spend on tickets either.
You listen to a couple dubstep tracks and all of a sudden everything needs to change for you. I saw Mixmaster Mike beat juggle a whole section of dubstep at Bloc Weekender here in the England. He made it sound good (it sounds like noise to me much of the time). And nobody's said anything about a hiphop or breaks DJ doing something like this. Cos they are prob too busy at most festivals with their shirts off showing the girls their muscles and their tatts. Or vice versa the girls showing off their fake tans and their coke figure.
Groove Armada are still rocking it over here and their live sets and DJ are better than a lot of other acts. Yeah, people still listen to Groove Armada. Think they are kind of an institution in dance music, and a look at their Lovebox weekender here in London will probably impress you more. Let's trash Prodigy, Chemical Brothers and Faithless too guys, they're touring again, the latter 2 on the back of a new album...PS, how shit are Orbital and Leftfield? they're touring here as well.
What a bunch of whiny brats. You have no idea how hard and expensive it is to get talent from the US and UK/EU to tour Australia. You aren't close to anywhere in the world. Festivals are closing down in the UK because they can't make it financially viable (Glade festival, anyone? Google it and tell me if any festival in Oz has a rep like it). I didn't bitch when I missed out on Prydz after he pulled out on Shore Thing 2009 but I did decide to leave Australia and see what's happening myself. Fuzzy puts on electronic events. You want different? Go to BDO or Falls fest, or Blues fest, or Woodford, or Splendour, or Playground Weekender. What? There are events that Fuzzy don't put on? There is simply not the number of people in Australia to make something like a Sziget or Roskilde viable. Schmucks.
All I can think of is Zoe Saldana in the movie Avatar. "You're like babies...making noise...don't know nothing".

If there's one thing I can't stand it's music snobs. Put aside the computer and try to put an instrument in your hands or get behind the decks yourselves instead of being so critical. Make a name for yourselves. Get on a lineup. Then see how long it takes before the fans change generations and tastes, and the drugs change effects. These artists are getting billed, paid, and re-booked (very important qualities, you know). You're all probably getting your first fluoro caps. Are they still wearing them over there? If your first reaction to this is to get out the guitar, then I've hit my message home. If you write a response to attack my opinion, you've wasted your energy, cos I won't be around to read it...
