If you haven’t got your name down for this year’s Meredith Music Festival ticket ballot, stop what you’re doing and get yourself over there right now, because earlier today, Aunty Meredith dropped her lineup for this year’s festival. You’ve got until the 16th of August to get your shit together and your name down for the ticket ballot and and boy oh boy, you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss out.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at this lineup, shall we? They’re calling this year’s offering the Odyssey Supreme and you know what? There’s no better description. Consistently one of our favourites, the 2016 line up does not disappoint in the slightest, coming in hot with a hefty selection of electronica, experimental, r&b from across the globe, as well as some of Australia’s finest.
Making the trip to our fine shores this December to join the prolific King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and legendary Aussie act The Triffids will be the downright incomparably provocative Peaches, experimental extraordinaires BADBADNOTGOOD, literal icon Sheila E, the enigmatic Kelela and many, many more.
Honestly, it’s times like these that we thank our lucky stars that Meredith is a one-stage festival, because any clashes with a line-up like this could be distressing. Running from 9-11 of December, the 26th incarnation of the festival will feature a plethora of diverse and all-round fine as fuck music to take in at the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre.
Now all we wanna know is who is doing sideshows, when and where?!
