Homebake 2012 Line up – Official Announcement

Written by Brayden Darke on July 31, 2012

Australia’s own home grown and operated festival Homebake has announced its first lineup for this year’s festival. Specialising in Australian music, Homebake is one of our most popular festivals. Despite usually having no imported talent albeit for the odd Kiwi artist here and there, this year we’ll see its first major international act headline the event.

In 2010 they decided to take a year off, which was probably for the best. As organisers put it, the planets were not aligned for that year. But 2011 saw it return again, back better than ever. In previous years, Frenzal Rhomb, Powderfinger, Grinspoon, Parkway Drive, and more recently Gotye have played the event.

The first of its kind was in 1996 up in Byron and was at two different locations. Over the years it has become more of an institution, taking on more of a BDO vibe than a SITG vibe, but great times all the same.

For the 2012 event we’ll see four stages: the Main Stage, the Big Top, the Dome and the new Rowland S Howard Stage. We’ll also have the cinema pavilion (curated by Kieran Darcy-Smith/Blue-Tongue), the New Comedy Stage (presented by Sydney Comedy Festival), roving activities & performers, international food fair, market stalls, an artist signing tent (all proceeds to a nominated cause), the youth & community information & awareness stalls and more!

Checkout our interview with Seekae in the lead up to their appearance at Homebake:
