Meredith Music Festival has announced it’s 2011 line-up for its 21st birthday, and what a 21st it looks like it will be! Grinderman will headline the festival with legendary Aussie band Icehouse and Seattle Grunge band Mudhoney, who rarely play anymore, making their way out here for Aunty’s birthday.
To top it off, it seems the moon will be eclipsed ‘in totality’ for 51 minutes and 8 seconds, which will take place from 14:31:49 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), which is about half-past midnight on the Saturday night of Meredith, or about the time that Grinderman finish their set.
The Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre is situated on the edge of a farm, 90 kms due West of Melbourne, halfway between Geelong and Ballarat, near the town of Meredith in the Shire of Golden Plains, Victoria, Australia.
The venue is a spectacular, permanent site, set up specifically for both the Meredith Music Festival and her sister festival Golden Plains. It has been purpose-built and continually refined using 21 years of collective know-how to provide a premium experience for performer and patron alike.
