Winter might still be holding on doggedly for dear life, but the warmer good times weather is fast approaching. And as such, the blessed Summer Festival Season is starting to grease its wheels.
And of the lot of ’em, arguably no festival is as passionately beloved as the Meredith Music Festival in rural Victoria.
Aunty Meredith is gearing up for her twenty-seventh incarnation this December, and in celebration she’s gifted us her insanely good lineup that’ll make a few of you still suffering from Splendour-related FOMO a tiny bit happy.
Though they only played at the Byron festival this past time they reached our shores, it looks as if the almighty Future Islands will be returning for a fully-fledged summer tour, with the crooning/dreamy/screamy outfit among the headliners for Meredith 2017.
Joining them at the top of the lineup is Norwegian party machine Todd Terje & The Olsens, powerhouse Chicago rapper Noname, iconic and enduring outfit ESG, rollicking Melbourne punks Total Control, and dance-punk champions !!!.
The 2017 Meredith festival is taking place over three days, on December 8, 9, and 10, at the traditional stomping grounds of the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre in Meredith, VIC.
If you’re absolutely keen to head along this year, which you should be because it totally rules, you’d best be chucking your name into the ticket ballot and crossing your fingers quick sticks.
Cop the full lineup below.
