Obviously, the Lolla lineup is enormous and way better, but how good is Splendour?

I would love to see Bloc Party, Klaxons, Shins and Hilltop Hoods who I have never seen, and to revisit Josh Pyke, Powderfinger, Kaiser Chiefs and Cat Empire.

And then we have the Live Earth concert in Sydney with:

Crowded House
Jack Johnson
John Butler Trio

Eskimo Joe

Sneaky Sound System –
Paul Kelly

Toni Collette & The Finish
Blue King Brown

How fucking good is that?? I think I will definitely be there for that on the 7th of July!

Shit…when do I get paid again?


About Mick

I've been around a while. I like to wrap myself around the warm security of the interwebs which have consumed me since 1993. I whinge, I rant, I crap on. Enjoy. View all posts by Mick
