Golden Plains 2016 Lineup Announced

Meredith’s beloved Golden Plains festival has unveiled its full 2016 lineup, packing the likes of riot grrrl icons Sleater-Kinney, US alt-rockers Violent Femmes and Seun Kuti (the son of Fela Kuti) and his dad’s afrobeat orchestra Egypt 80.

In September, Melbourne rockers Eddy Current Suppression Ring became the first band to be locked in for the next year’s Golden Plains event, which will see the band slip out of hiatus to headline the festival’s Sunday night.

Other homegrown Aussie acts named for Golden Plains’ tenth birthday celebrations in 2016 include experimentalists HTRK, rockers Royal Headache and blues singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking.

Last year’s Golden Plains festival saw acts like Conor Oberst, Courtney Barnett and The Village People perform at Meredith’s Supernatural Amphitheatre.

The Ticket Ballot for Golden Plains 2016 will remain open until Tuesday, 20th October. Catch ballot details alongside the festival’s full lineup, below.
