Harvest announces 2012 lineup

Image for Harvest announces 2012 lineup

When Harvest made its debut last year with the legendary Portishead at the top of the bill, the festival set a very high precedent for itself. Now, Harvest has just announced the line-up for year number two – sadly, it’s a bit light on the dance-y front, though the inclusion of Beck and Santigold ought pique a bit of interest. So, thoughts?

Harvest 2012 lineup:

Beck
Sigur Ros
Grizzly Bear
Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane
Ben Folds Five
Santigold
Beirut
Cake
The Dandy Warhols
The Black Angels
Chromatics
Ozomatli
Liars
F**k Buttons
The War On Drugs
Dark Dark Dark

Harvest 2012 dates:

Sunday 11th November – Melbourne
Saturday 17th November – Sydney
Sunday 18th November – Riverstage, Brisbane

Beck and Sigur Ros would be sick, bit nonplussed about the rest though.

Would trade them all for Portishead again.

At bit eclectic, for sure. Santigold, Fuck Buttons and Sigur Ros would be incredible to see. But it ain't no Portishead!

@thunderbot.

I was living in the UK when all those gigs happened (where I saw them lots, but that was a while ago now)
So I've been waiting a while for them to appear on a festival bill here.

I love this festival. Last year was amazing and they've followed up with another great line up.

I would buy a ticket to watch Mike Patton dress up like a zombie, make some terrifying zombie-esque noises whilst systematically devouring all of the acts on the festival followed by a stage-dive into the crowd.

tl;dr: Line-up is shit except for Mike Patton (maybe Ozomatli, but where the fuck have they been the past 11 years?)
