UPDATE: The 2013 Harvest Festival line up is here!
OK, so we know we’ve said this before but the official line up announcement for Harvest Festival 2013 is coming and it’s coming soon. Organisers have now scrapped the whole ‘tentative’ date and locked in tomorrow – Friday, 28th June – for the bill to be made public.
The announcement was said to be arriving today but, for one reason or another, it has been slightly adjusted till tomorrow. Obviously nobody informed The Eels of this change as they have now well and truly confirmed they will be performing.
So at least we got something out of today and can increase the tally of confirmed bands to two.
Now that you’ve got some time to kill, feel free to flick through our list of confirmations, rumours and the like for Harvest and see how it matches up with your predictions. Pretty close I bet.
