Harvest festival lineup

We’ve been hearing whispers about the Harvest Festival for quite a while now with several incredibly tantalizing rumours doing the rounds and now, well over a month since we uncovered the tour dates, we finally have a lineup!

Harvest Presents “The Gathering” has been created by the team behind the Soundwave and Soundwave Revolution festivals has been touted as a “thrilling and magical banquet for the senses featuring exhilarating music, stunning location, beautiful art installations, playful and subversive performance, quality food and markets, and a strong ecological and social consciousness.” A far cry from the sort lineups we’ve come to expect from Soundwave, but we’re certainly not complaining!

Featuring two main stages, one big top stage and a cabaret tent, the festival will be headlined by Portishead, who haven’t toured Australia in 13 years, the lineup also features The Flaming Lips, Bright Eyes, The National, Mercury Rev and The Family Stone (apparently without Sly).

There are no Harvest sideshows planned in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne, but according to one of the festival’s promoters, AJ Maddah, there will “be a few shows in Adelaide, Perth and Auckland” during the 5 day break between shows in Sydney and Brisbane. He has also indicated that there will be a Flaming Lips sideshow in Adelaide with support from Foxy Shazam. Portishead and Mercury Rev sideshows have been announced in Perth and Adelaide.

Following the cancellation of the Soundwave Revolution, Kevin Devine is a late addition to the Harvest lineup.
