Harvest sideshows update: Beck and Mondo Cane confirmed

Following on from yesterday’s announcement of the 2012 Harvest Festival lineup – which features the likes of Beck, Sigur Ros and Mondo Cane – talk has quickly turned to which of the headliners will be performing sideshows, and luckily we have the ever vocal AJ Maddah on hand to answer (most of) our queries.

Last year fourteen acts – including all the headliners – performed additional shows. And while the great majority of these were weighted to the East Coast, Perth and Adelaide did receive visits from Portishead, Holy Fuck, The Flaming Lips, The National and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Since the original announcement Maddah has confirmed via twitter that in 2012 “Most sideshows will be in Adelaide & Perth. 2 or 3 in other cities.”

Since this initial remark Maddah has dished more details confirming that Beck will do “one sideshow. Not sure where yet” and that Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane will perform their two sideshows in “Adelaide and Perth”. He has also said that there are still multiple lineup announcements to come and, for those of you who noted the distinct absence of any Aussie names on the lineup, all “Aus bands are on later announcements.”

Confirmed Harvest Festival sideshows:

Mondo Cane – Adelaide and Perth

Beck- one show only , probably in Adelaide
