After finalising its strong international lineup including Beck, Sigur Ros, Grizzly Bear and many more, along withcementing some homegrown talent from Triple J Unearthed, as well as introducing their 2012 Arts program; Harvest Festival is just about ready to blossom into it second year as we edge closer to the first date in Melbourne this weekend
The music festival has already sold out in Melbourne, before adding an extra date that allowed Foundation Members access to either of its weekend shows at Werribee Park, and according to organisers, Sydney’s event at Parramatta Park is very close to selling out also.
But due to demand from fans, Harvest have announced an eleventh hour reprieve for those who’d rather attend the sold out Sunday show in Melbourne rather than the Saturday show. An extra 200 tickets have been put on sale immediately, according to a press release sent out by the festival:
Due to an inundation of requests from folks who missed out on the chance to join their friends at the sold-out Melbourne event this Sunday, 200 further tickets have been released for sale, effective immediately!
Fans looking to snap up the tickets better act fast though as the 200 tickets are sure to go quickly.
Whichever day you go, the timetable is the same and producing a running time that will satisfy everybody is impossible for a festival of this scale, so the best advice is to take a closer look below and start planning your day, being sure to take in the recently announced Arts lineup for Harvest 2012, featuring over 400 artists working on 80 acts and installations – from the playful to the ethereal, the thought provoking to the downright jaw-dropping
That or start bartering for those exclusive sideshows… including Grizzly Bear, Beirut and The War On Drugs, on top of Dexy’s sideshows, a double slot between Santigold and Crazy P; as well as fellow musical cohorts Ben Folds Five and Cake, a co-headline show from Silversun Pickups & The Dandy Warhols – and of course Beck’s one-and-only sideshow.
