It’s a big day for Harvest Festival 2013, and the line up has already firmed up before the official announcement set to drop at some point today – The Eels have self-confirmed their involvement earlier this morning.
UPDATE: The full line up for the 2013 Harvest Festival is here!
The band took to their Facebook page to confirm that they are “scheduled to perform at the Harvest Festival in Australia” before listing the dates they will be performing. The band then directs fans to where they can buy tickets, prompting them to a link which lists their head-spinning international touring schedule. The band are clearly in high demand following the 2013 deluxe release of their album Wonderful, Glorious.
So far, we have two acts confirmed for the festival inspired by the culture of similar events on Europe. Eels join Neutral Milk Hotel as the only bands so far confirmed but according to organisers, we will soon be able to marvel and the full line up which will be delivered later today via triple j.
Don’t worry if you miss it, we’ve got your back. Check in for more updates.
