Wed 29th Aug, 2012 Newsin
2012 is shaping up to be a good year for boutique electronic music festivals. First, we got the killer lineup for the inaugural edition of Sydney’s OutsideIn Festival, then Harbourlife announced it was returning with one of its best bills yet. Now, Melbourne’s getting a slice of the pie with the announcement of a new boutique festival to see in the New Year. Let Them Eat Cake is hosting its debut edition on New Year’s Day 2013 at Melbourne’s Werribee Park, boasting an impressive first round lineup for the inaugural event.
At the top of the bill is deep-house-meets-soul specialist Kerri Chandler, joined by cult hip-hop star The Gaslamp Killer and Canadian innovator Mathew Jonson. Bringing an injection of bass are Digital Mystikz, the esteemed dubstep duo comprised of Coki and Mala, and also due to appear are R&S signee Space Dimension Controller and the UK’s DJ Marky and Stamina MC.
Promising “musical decadence, garden party opulence and culinary excess”, Let Them Eat Cake is looking to create a high quality start to the New Year. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday September 12 and will set you back $95.
