Peeps To Catch @ V Fest

With the rest of Australia having already enjoyed Richard Branson's fruits, it is now Dullsville's turn and I must say the lineup has come together quite nicely. Timetable clashes are inevitable at these things but hey, deal with it. In my opinion kiddies the earlier you arrive the better with quality acts on from the get go. With Modular newbies Plug-In City at 1:45 and ice-cold disco heroes Glass Candy at 2. Cut Copy will be giving their setlist a major makeover with the release of In Ghost Colours which should be a relief to die hard Perth fans that saw them on each of their four appearances across the nullabor in the past 12 months. Swedish pop geniuses The Tough Alliance may well unfortunately drag me away from Cutters as the Melbourne lads will be back soon but the same can't be said of the boys from Gothenberg. TTA will probably get an undeservedly small crowd to their clashing with Cut Copy but they will put on an incredible show i'm sure. Next will be a quick peep into the DJ tent to see Italians Do It Better head honcho Mike Simonetti who I hope will be pumping out some great disco and Italo. Then back to check out the Rakes who I have been a fan of ever since hearing 22 Grand Job about 3 or 4 years ago. Then there is a serious bit of clashing with Modest Murphy, ex-Moloko member Roisin Murphy and Gomma label boss Munk. I wasn't able to see them two years ago at Southbound but I heard they were a bit lacking anyway. Which ever ways the wind is blowing..... Anyway.....

Here's a few track to go with to get you amped. If you haven't got you ticket you can still get them now (like I just did) here.

Plug-In City - Broke On A Wheel

Glass Candy - Beatific

The Tough Alliance - Silly Crimes

Cut Copy - Feel The Love

The Presets - A New Sky

Roisin Murphy - Overpowered [Kris Menace Remix]
