Playground Weekender Second Announcement
Shapeshifter, Cameras, Paper Scissors, Guerre & more!
Despite receiving the sad news that Fat Freddy's Drop and Modeselektor have announced they are now unavailable to perform at this year's Playground Weekender, the festival have released a whole new spate of artists to ease the pain. Set to join the all-star line-up, which includes a raft of exciting internationals like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, The Orb and Neon Indian, is a healthy mix of local and overseas acts. There are some festival-favourites like LTJ Bukem and Steve Bug returning for another dose of Playground fun, as well as some new faces like New Zealand's Shapeshifter and Amirali, who will be making his live Australian debut at Playground Weekender 2012. Also in the mix is a whole heap of emerging Australian talent like Cameras, The Paper Scissors, Fait Accompli and Pluto Jonze.
Round six of Playground Weekender is set to be a big one, not only for all the great talent in attendance, but also thanks to some exciting new developments for the three-day festival at Wiseman's Ferry. The yoga tent holds particular appeal, as does the fact that kids under 10 can attend for free (for all those with babies on board and a lack of sitters in sight). The kids can even join in the fun with dance and music workshops, face painting and a jumping castle? oh, to be young again. Some old perks are still a big draw card too, though, in particular the fancy dress parade and the range of accommodation options which includes everything from a teepee village to a houseboat with friends.
Whatever you're into, Playground Weekender isn't one to be missed. Stay tuned for more line-up updates, which are set for release closer to the festival date.
