Peats Ridge Festival 2011 lineup

Summing up last year’s Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts and Music Festival our FL reviewer declared: ”…the location is gorgeous, the dickhead factor is at an all-time low and if it was any more laid back, it would probably fall over.” Entering its eighth year now, Peats Ridge has established itself as one of Australia’s leading New Year’s festivals, producing diverse line-ups while remaining true to its ethos of environmental sustainability.

Heading up the festivities at Glenworth Valley this New Year’s Eve will be Gotye, who this week became the first Australian act in five years to achieve double chart success, when his album Making Mirrors debuted at #1in the ARIA charts alongside his crossover single Somebody That I Used To Know.

Joining Mr De Backer will be Californian popsters Dum Dum Girls, blues master Hanni El Khatib, Beijing and Mongolian folk-rock hybrid Hanggai and a huge array of local bands.

Of course, there is more than just music at Peats, with a whole world of performing arts and cultural activities set to be revealed over coming months as well.
