Taking place on New Years Day at the gorgeous Werribee Park, only a half hour journey from central Melbourne, this is the perfect way to kick off 2016. While the big camping festivals may hold a lot of appeal, it’s no secret that smaller boutique events have been stealing the limelight. There’s more options, the lineups are great, you get more for your money, the crowds are better, the food and drink options are mint… the list goes on.
Now in its fourth year, Let Them Eat Cake is again showing itself to have pulled together of the most exciting and innovative electronic lineups that we’ve seen on the festival circuit so far.
Having built a reputation as one of the best in only three instalments, Let Them Eat Cake delivers way more than just the music: food, art, and a “lavish journey through a garden of delight…. an outlandish assault on sight, sound, taste, smell and imagination,” is all on offer for the lucky punter. For the wanderers and psychonauts among us, the festival also promises to be “a dream construct that adorns reality with an ephemeral whimsy.” Sounds pretty amazing to me, amiright?
Now, for the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Behold, the 2016 Let Them Eat Cake festival lineup:
Ben UFO (UK)
Com Truise (USA)
Daniel Avery (UK)
DJ Tennis (ITA)
Four Tet (UK)
Jon Hopkins (UK)
Motor City Drum Ensemble (GER)
Seven Davis Jr
