Another act leaked from 2012 Parklife line-up?

Since Fuzzy revealed the dates for its 2012 Parklife tour, there’s been plenty of speculation buzzing around about the incoming line-up. While the official announcement is expected this month, a few potential leaks have showed up around the internet, including the discovery by an ITMer of dates on Modestep’s website. Following on from that was UK MC Labrinth confirming to Cosmopolitan magazine that he’s locked in and bass fiend DJ Fresh posting Parklife to his touring calendar.

In 2011, the Songkick page for Swedish four-piece Little Dragon gave away that they were on the line-up, and now the site has turned up another potential 2012 booking. While Songkick isn’t exactly a water-tight source, the gig listings for Canadian house pairing Art Department includes Parklife.

There is the odd addition of a show in Switzerland between New Zealand and Adelaide, which does raise an eyebrow. Much of Songkick’s listings come from ticketing companies and promoters rather than users, but of course it’s not always accurate. However, Art Department has the Auckland show on its Facebook page, which suggests they will indeed be down this way in spring.

If Parklife is on the Art Department agenda, Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow will certainly be in good practise once they get here. Just looking at the duo’s upcoming tour dates is enough to make you feel fatigued, including stops at festivals like Exit, Bloc, Global Gathering, Ultra Music Festival Poland and Hideout. Art Department was last here over summer for the Crosstown Rebels tour. We can see them working solidly in an afternoon festival slot.

Im pretty sure I saw Art Department out here this year for the Crosstown Rebels tour?! They would be very suited to a sunset slot!

It's an even slower way of drip feeding the lineup then Twitter.
