Grimes, The xx + More Ruled Out For Harvest Festival 2012

Written by John Ritchie on June 5, 2012

The Harvest Festival 2012 lineup will be announced next week; however, promoter AJ Maddah has started ruling out some rumoured acts that definitely won’t be playing.


Update 14/06/2012: Harvest Festival 2012 Lineup is here


Grimes was first rumoured for the lineup when she suggested she would play an Australian festival in October/November, but she has now been ruled out, making her a strong chance for Parklife. The xx were suggested as a chance for the Harvest lineup when they announced a small 2-show tour for July; however, Maddah has confirmed they won’t play. UK bands Foals and Hot Chip have also been ruled out as lineup contenders.

Maddah has also ruled out the possibility of The Cure, Beck and Sigur Ros all playing at Harvest this year. We may still see 1 or 2 but we definitely won’t see all 3.
