No sideshows for Good Vibrations in 2011

Although Laneway , Big Day Out and Soundwave have all announced festival sideshows Good Vibrations will not be following their lead.

A statement from the festival’s promoters has confirmed that there’ll be no sideshows in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland or Western Australia, which means that the only way to see the amazing acts on the bill is to grab a ticket to the festival. Guess that means the date for a Friendly Fires show at the Enmore that was leaked is now officially a no go.

Punters hoping to see Faithless, Phoenix, Nas & Damian Marley, Cee Lo Green, Kelis, Erykah Badu, Miike Snow, Friendly Fires and the rest of the Good Vibrations lineup will have to grab festival tickets, start working on their pecs and book in a fake tan appointment.

The local lineups for each city are set to be announced next week.
