Harvest Festival Lineup Announcement May Clash With NSW Government Plans

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 26, 2013

Punters have been patient and well-behaved in the lead up to the Harvest Festival 2013 lineup announcement, but there is potentially one more thing standing between us and the official bill as top dog AJ Maddah has tweeted that the planned lineup announcement tomorrow may have hit hit a snag.

UPDATE: The 2013 Harvest Festival line up is here!

For the Sydney event this year, the festival will be breaking in a new location. That’s right, no more Parramatta Park. But it seems that the New South Wales government has also has their eye on this new location and plans to develop it into a footy oval.

The Sydney venue has not been confirmed, though FFA boss David Gallop has recently called for the NSW Government to developing a new home ground for the increasingly popular Western Sydney Wanderers. It’s possible that this may be the cause of the clash of interests.

This has been one of the least leaky run-ups to festival lineup announcement in recent memory, with only one band – “>Neutral Milk Hotel – so far being confirmed for Harvest and, at this point, not even the venues are public knowledge.

Remain patient and well-behaved – whenever the lineup drops, it’s sure to be worth it.
