All aboard the Bacardi Express! Australia’s only touring music festival on rails just got a whole lot noisier! Headliners La Roux will be joined by Art vs Science, Yves Klein Blue, Miami Horror and The Cassette Kids, with DJ support from Sampology completing the stellar line up.
The Bacardi Express, an iconic 1960’s train, will take the bands on a rock and roll journey from 25th – 27th March 2010, stopping off to play exclusive concerts along a new route in Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Newcastle and the final destination Sydney.
With nearly 100 fans, cooks, bartenders and crew packed into fifteen carriages on the Bacardi Express, it’s no surprise the bands joining La Roux on the 2010 tour can’t wait to find out what happens on board;
● ARIA nominated Sydney outfit and Triple J Unearthed winners Art vs Science: “We’ve heard the catering is really good on the train, bring on the fun!”
● Two Years since they hit the music scene, Brisbane’s hot rockers Yves Klein Blue have their debut album on the streets and have just returned from a whirlwind UK tour: “Jam room, bars, being locked in close proximity with a bunch of other musicians for 48 hours – it’s just a unique touring experience, we can’t wait to get on the Bacardi Express.”
● Melbourne’s finest remixer Miami Horror who has re-crafted the likes of The Presets, Pnau and Bloc Party and has most recently performed a killer set at Falls Festival: “Out of this whole experience we’re probably most excited to be hanging out with the other bands, it’s a great chance to collaborate and muck around in the jam room.”
● Electro stars and Triple J Unearthed winners Cassette Kids: “Being part of Bacardi Express 2010 is so exciting for us. Our friends The Lost Valentinos played last year and they said they had the best time!”
