The Homebake festival has always been Aussie Playlist’s favourite muisc festival, showcasing exclusively Australian music. However this year in an attempt to go ‘global’ (aka sell out on your principles), Homebake have announced Blondie, the American ‘has been’ with hits that included ‘Heart of Glass’ back in the 70s. Poor show Homebake <insert more backlash and ranting here>.
Apart from our disappointment at Blondie headlining, the line-up is pretty solid and other than music features a variety of comedy acts including Tim Minchin (who in our eyes is the honorary headliner). Other bigger acts include Kimbra, rock outfit Birds of Tokyo, and Daniel Merriweather. Iconic hip hop stars Hilltop Hoods are playing, as are Angus and Julia Stone, each separately to promote their single careers. Indie favourites Ball Park Music will also hit the stage, along with psychedelic rockers Pond. A number of up and coming bands are also making an appearance including, San Cisco, Emma Louise, Jinja Safari, hip hoppers Diafrix and DZ Deathrays.
Plus there are more announcements to come!
The festival is to be held in The Domain again this year on December 8th, with tickets going on sale August 16th.
