Stereosonic 2012 Playlist

Featuring Van She, Diplo, Avicii and more.

It may be bloody freezing at the moment, but the line-up for Stereosonic — the festival to unofficially kick of summer — has just been announced. This year the electro/dance festival celebrates its sixth year running, and does so in style with one of its biggest line-up's yet. There's some Daisy Lowe festival fashionz above to get you in the mood!

The tickets will go on sale at 9am on Thursday August 2 (put it in the diary, pals) via Ticketmaster, with the first release tickets retailing at $139.95. In the meantime, we went straight to YouTube to create a lil somethin' somethin' (i.e. a playlist) of the bands we're most excited to see.
