First two bands announced for Meredith 2012

After twenty years of myth-making and party-starting, Aunty Meredith hasn’t even started to tire. In fact two decades since she first strapped some amps to a flat-bed truck our favourite sherry guzzler “”remains unique in both her execution and her appeal; unwaveringly eclectic, unerringly hip and faithfully compact.””: And the first two bands to be announced on this year’s Meredith Music Festival lineup are certainly testament to this.

Following on from their recent reunion performance at Dig It Up in Sydney, The Sunnyboys will grace the Super Natural Amphitheatre this December. Cracking smiles on the Friday night with the very best of their very awesome back-catalogue, this performance from the legendary post-punkers will be their first south of the NSW border in 21 years.

And fulfilling the ‘unerringly hip’ component of Meredith 2012 will be this year’s most talked about artist, Grimes. Having blown ‘em away at SXSW and already sitting atop FL’s ‘Best Of the first half’ list with her breakthrough album Visions, glitch-pop darling Claire Boucher will have us all swinging our hip(sters).
